One of my goals for 2015 is to be more confident. Somewhere along the way I seemed to have lost it. I can’t put my finger on the exact moment but this is something I am determined to regain.
I sometime feel intimidated by others; my voice goes up several octaves and I lose my train of thought and become awkward, trailing off and saying something silly.
Some good advice from my best friend – when facing these scenarios, forget about who you’re speaking to and focus on the subject. This suggestion somehow works – focusing on the story can feel familiar and true, regardless of present company.
The bottom line is I need to be ok with myself and not worry about what others think. As soon as I can make this sea change, I will regain my confidence.
Loved this post!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Thanks V! 🙂
I love your post regarding being more confident.I think all of us at one time or another have experienced the same feelings.you are very brave to share this info with your followers and I know you will acheive your goal because you are off to a good start.
Such a lovely comment. Thank you! I appreciate your empathy and expressing the vulnerability of sharing such feelings with others. It’s definitely scary but I’m glad I did it.
That’s a brilliant point from your friend. I tend to stutter over words from nervousness when I am around certain people I am not that comfortable with. You are beautiful inside and out, Asa! You have a good place to start there by learning to be okay with yourself. I know as a fact that it’s easier said than done since I am still learning to love certain things about myself as well but it’s something we, as human beings, need to do for ourselves. 🙂
Nadine – thanks so much for taking the time to comment on this post. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and insecurities. It means so much to know that others experience the same things. You’re such a sweetheart and thank you for the lovely compliment and being such a good friend to me. Sending a big virtual hug your way. 😀
It’s a huge pleasure, Asa! You have been so amazing to me. Sharing insecurities is one of those things that we find difficult to do but it’s so necessary to know we aren’t alone in those things which make us feel weak. It’s vital in our acceptance. Sending you a giant virtual hug right back! 🙂 <3
