Self-confidence is a fickle thing. While it seems like some have it in tremendous amounts, and others barely have any at all, the truth is typically somewhere in the middle. Those who exude self-confidence, or cut others down, are often doing it to try and make others believe it, as well as themselves.
Those who seem to have very little self-confidence, often possess a strength that they are not aware of or do not give themselves credit for. They believe they are weak, they have been told they are weak, and they start to convince themselves that they are weak. However, there are things that we are doing that strip away from the confidence that most of us do have, and that we need to change as soon as possible to embrace the strength that is within each of us.
I cannot recount how many times people have told me how disappointing their life is compared to that of their friends on Social Media. When I delve deeper into what they are talking about, I find out that they are comparing their lives to this portrayal that people are putting on Social Media. The most romantic relationships in the world, the best kids you could ever find, or success after success.
