a three syllable word which holds such power over one.
such a small word if you put it into perspective.
but the meaning which it holds is continuously lacking in many people around us.
everyday i'm becoming more aware of those who surround me who lack confidence.
it makes me very sad because i once was in their place and i know it's a tough spot to be in.
personally, i found my confidence lacked towards beauty.
i never found myself ugly, but i wouldn't categorize myself as the idea of "pretty" or "beautiful".
i always felt that those around me judged me based on my appearance and i found it difficult to meet people based on these thoughts. throughout high school i became more aware of my issue with low confidence.
i finally realized that i needed to fix my issues with myself and how i looked at my beauty.
i mentally sat down with myself and gave myself the pep talk of the century and i was slowly able to get out of my slump.
each day i found something i loved about myself, as cliche as that is, and i would think about it during the day if i wasn't feeling confident.
now i can say that i love my eyebrows, my sense of style, my hair length, the clarity of my skin, and my eye colour.
even just starting out with one thing made it possible to get to where i am today!
