Self Confidence! (Guest Post)

EE Cummings wrote that “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit”… These words resonate well with exactly what Self Esteem is and why it’s important for an individual to possess.

 
Brief explanation what is self confidence?
 
In her book The Portable Therapist (1992), Susanna McMahon explains that self-confidence is “a way of being in the world that allows you to know yourself and to take care of yourself.” Mary Welford (2013) says that it’s about being aware of when we’re struggling and having the strength to commit to doing something about it. Anneli Rufus (2014) asserts that self-confidence involves self-respect and having the courage to tell the truth about who you are, what you like, and what you believe.
Self-confidence, then, is the courage to know yourself, believe in yourself, and act on your beliefs. A definition of self-confidence is a positive feeling about oneself and the world that leads to courageous actions born out of a sense of self-respect.

    so helpful and needed this right now! lately ive felt so weird, i keep trying to remember how i was so confident before as a teen.
    lately i have been so shy and quiet and i get so scared to defend myself.
    i literally was shaking and almost cried when my supervisor at work lectured me lol
    i keep thinking that i would be totally different if i were a teen again, i wouldn’t have been shaking then.

    not sure what happened but these tips will really help!!! thanks for sharing ❤
