Let’s talk about self confidence. I understand that in life we just want to fit in. We all want to be noticed, and some people are just a natural at it, but some aren’t. I’m honestly a very awkward person when it comes to socializing. I can be very good at it, but most times I get the urge that I’m trying too hard and I realize that I’m not being myself. I’ve began to realize especially in making new friends, is that when you try too hard to be friends with someone and you turn into someone you’re not, then fate says that that is not where you belong. I feel like everyone deserves a place or someone that shapes them into a person they naturally are supposed to be. That is where you get to find your own happiness.
I remember getting anxious in the morning before school because I was always afraid of a ‘friend’ getting mad at me. But then years and years afterwards I realized that I could choose the people I want to keep. When you overthink something and you get scared by just the thought of it, think again. Is it because you’re scared you’ll fail and disappoint other people, or yourself? If it is because you’re scared of other people, they ain’t worth your time! Your time is yours, you get to choose what you want to do with it. If your answer is because you’re scared of disappointing yourself, I’m 80% sure you’re on the right track and one day you’ll never regret doing what you’re doing.
But honestly it’s alright to make mistakes, that’s life! Without making mistakes, you can’t be a better you. So don’t ever be scared of being who you want to be just because you’re afraid of failing. Be true to yourself, find the people who would care for who you are, and find a place your heart has been searching all this time.
So be you! By being you that is where your true beauty comes from. Beyoutiful.
