Confidence: a powerful way to reflect on it

For my birthday, I wanted to reflect on confidence and what it means to me. I remember watching a Slumber Party episode with Shameless Maya and Shannon Boodram. They invited Timothy DeLaGhetto and Winnie Harlow to talk about confidence. At one point, Winnie Harlow was asked about what it meant for her. She said the following: “I was born with it, then I lost it and gained it back by deciding my original idea of myself was more important and more relevant.” I want to use this post to talk more about what this quote means to me. Also, I want to shed light on how I relate to it reflecting on my own confidence throughout my life. Buckle up, it’s going to be a wild one!

Last Why You Should, I talked about doing an internship abroad. Today, I want to talk about something more personal: Choosing yourself. My guess is that it is something most people struggle with: choosing yourself, or choosing themselves. Hell, I struggle with it at times. Sometimes, I have to really ask myself why I’m doing something, and if I really want to. I think it is important to ask yourself why you applied for this job, why you are in that relationship or still hanging on to that particular friendship. Below, I will share why we ALL should be choosing ourselves more instead of putting others before us. Why it is NOT selfish, and why you should probably do it more often.

Let’s get into working abroad! (more…)
