I thought I had self-confidence. I was an intelligent and well-loved girl. I was a dreamer. I lived in my own little world. I had friends, a family… what could possibly be wrong?
But then, when I had to sit for oral english examinations, I realise that in fact, I had a low self-esteem. I couldn’t firstly talk properly, I just ended up stammering and running out of words. Before I was really under stress. After I was drinking my whole bottle of water in one go – and of course I had to rush to the toilet.
I have never felt such panic in my whole short life.
Since that day, I knew that I was not ready at all for Life. I was still young so I fortunately can correct myself in time.
I lacked self-confidence.
I might have been proud of myself, but it was not enough.
I could barely look myself into the mirror because although I can be beautiful inside, I wasn’t outside. It’s true that inner beauty is was counts the most, but we, humans, are weak and we need to see to believe. Self-confidence deals with both inner and outer beauty – my opinion.’
So for those who really lack self-esteem, look at yourself in the mirror. Of course we all tend to notice the flaws of our body… but what about its qualities? We should take those into consideration too. Someone might have a beautiful nose, and you a crooked one but you might have beautiful eyes (in shape and colour)!
I think that all eyes are beautiful because they are the windows of our soul, the most sacred thing inside of us.
You know that you are beautiful inside, but knowing is not enough. You must show it. And not only by doing kind deeds but also by dressing up appropriately; be disciplined but warm-hearted through your eyes. Take care of your body. Use creams if you have pimples or whatever. Wash your face, comb your hair, try on some clothing/makeup styles… This really does boost up your confidence. Your appearance should reflect what you are inside. And never say that you have an ugly soul – no one does!
I now can look myself into the mirror everyday; I pamper myself.
This can seem selfish but… if you really want to care for others, you should care for yourself first. An uneducated person cannot apply for the job of doctor to help all these dying people.
Therefore the first step is:
And everything will come into place.
