A Guide to Confidence: My Experience





Hello, I am so sorry for my lack of posts lately I've had a lot of exams to do. Today's post will be about confidence. What I have been wanting to do for awhile but never had a chance to do. Was to make a series of blog posts on confidence. This post will be my experience on my journey to confidence.

Ever since I was younger maybe around 9 I was exposed to my sister being not very confident with herself. Mainly because she started hanging out with new group of friends that were all very gorgeous and she was kind of still in that no figure phase. By the time I was 10 and my sister was now 13. She went from doubting herself to being crying herself to sleep some nights. Which I didn't understand back then and still not now because she is seriously the most prettiest girl in the world. But this got me thinking my body figure was kind of like hers I didn't look like any of my friends. So I began doubting myself. I'd never ever called my self fat I just knew that I was quite unhealthy. I had pimples all over my face, my skin was oily , my hair was frizzy and I have the biggest thighs in the world. I didn't really no how to cope. 

Around 2 years later I was 12 and I still wasn't confident. Even though my face cleared up I lost a bit of weight I was still kind of sad. Until one faithful day when I discovered youtubers and bloggers. I realized that they were pretty confident. So from that day I decided to do something very weird and pretend to be confident. Everyday I looked in the mirror I said "damn I look good today" even though I looked probably awful in my twelve year old stage. After that people always told me I was so confident so I believed them and went with it. So my advice is the  old saying "Fake it until you Make it".

Thank you so much for reading my story on confidence. It would mean so much if you told me your stories on confidence in the comments I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to follow. There will be more posts like this in the future. I am planning to make a series on this because it means so much to me. Thanks

Love, Hannah XXX
