On our journey through life, we’ll sometimes find other people who seem to have it all. To the outside world their lives look wonderful, and, we’ll think, well if we could just be them, life would be great. But the fact of the matter is, we have no idea if their lives are as great as we think they are…nor do we know if they are actually happy.
Instead of looking to others as a way to figure out how to be or how to live, each one of us needs to be who we are, not to copy someone else. Each one of us is an individual, and as such we’re one of a kind. There is no one else exactly like us in the world. That’s the way we were made, and that’s what makes the world so diverse and interesting.
So, okay, what’s my point? Don’t look to others to gain your confidence. Every day try to be a better you than you were yesterday. Take the time to figure out what you want, how you want to live, what you want to do. This life that you are living is yours, no one else’s, so try your best to live it the way you want. Dream about how you’d like your life to be, write those dreams down and set goals to achieve to bring those dreams to fruition. You can start by believing in yourself. Use a simple affirmation – “I believe in myself” to bring your confidence out of hiding. Say your own affirmations several times daily. Find yourself, be yourself.
