How to be confident about yourself? Life can be hard, but sometimes we can change how we feel about ourselves and how we see the world by starting changing our mind.
Because you don’t have to be perfect to be happy. We often focus on our imperfections, instead of focusing on our strengths. You don’t have to be skinny or have the best hair to be beautiful, there’s more to being confident than just how you look.
As a child I was bullied until I was 20 years old, I was insecure, I felt ashamed and I didn’t feel comfortable with my body and with myself. Fortunately, I’m a strong person and I have started letting go of my insecurity day after day to reach my goals, and this has allowed me to become a secure person.
That’s why I think that being happy depends on our attitude, on the ability to appreciate and take care of ourselves.
Here I share some tips on how to be confident about yourself.
Develop a positive mental attitude
Life can be difficult sometimes, so it is important to focus on the positive sides of things and not on the negative ones. Many people tend to have a negative view of reality, and this affects their social relationships, working career … thinking about the negative sides does not make us feel good, so it is important to take some time and think about how lucky we are for the small things that surround us every day and that we take for granted.
Love your body
We often see only the negative aspects of our body instead of looking at the positive ones. Each of us has his own strengths and imperfections, so learn to know them instead of hiding them.
Fashion and makeup
Fashion and makeup can make a difference not only from an aesthetic point of view but also from a psychological point of view. Learning how to choose the right clothes to enhance our figure is important because it allows us to hide the imperfections that may not make us feel good about ourselves. The same is for makeup, which allows us to highlight the strengths of our face and this helps improve our image. During the day I never use too much makeup, but I do not go out without eye shadow and Rimmel, the result makes me feel good all the day.
Give time to what you love
With the frenetic life we face each day, we just need to take time for ourselves. Do activities you love and make you feel good. This will allow you to be happy and more satisfied. Whether it is physical activity in the evening, a shopping day with friends or a cooking course …
Believe in yourself
One thing I learned is to believe in myself. It has been a long journey, but now I believe in me and love myself, I don’t listen to unnecessary criticism, but only to constructive advice that can improve me.
