Unleash Your Inner True Confidence: Trusting Yourself and Embracing Self-Assurance




Let’s talk about confidence – that magical quality that seems to elude many of us at times, but is actually right within our grasp. If you're anything like me, you once thought that confidence was about walking into a room and owning it. I used to think confidence was about believing I was the BEST and had no flaws. I thought that perfection and confidence were essentially the same thing. So, because I wasn't perfect- I couldn't be confident. I thought in order to be my most confident self I had to have alllll my ducks in a perfect row, and they all had to be in their best dresses wearing bows. I believed I couldn't be proud of myself, or show up authentically... unless authentic meant flawless.

OH, how wrong I was!! I learned through major self-exploration and personal development that confidence is simply knowing who you are and being totally okay with it! It's more about trusting yourself, embracing self-assurance, and knowing deep down that you've got this.

So, what does it mean to trust yourself? It's about having faith in your abilities, instincts, and decisions. It's about quieting that inner voice of doubt and fear, and instead, listening to the voice of wisdom and intuition within you. Trusting yourself means believing that you are capable of handling whatever life throws your way, and that even if you stumble, you have the resilience to pick yourself back up and keep going.

But here's the thing – trusting yourself isn't always easy. We live in a world that bombards us with messages of self-doubt and insecurity, making it challenging to tune into our inner knowing. That's where self-assurance comes in. It's about cultivating a deep sense of confidence from within, regardless of external validation or approval (that part's really important).

Self-assurance means knowing your worth, owning your strengths, and accepting your flaws. It's about embracing all parts of yourself – the good, the bad, and the messy – and recognizing that they make you uniquely beautiful. When you're self-assured, you radiate a magnetic energy that draws people to you, not because you're perfect, but because you're real.
So, how do you cultivate this kind of confidence? It starts with self-awareness. Take the time to get to know yourself on a deeper level – your likes, dislikes, passions, and values. Pay attention to the thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself, and challenge any negative or limiting beliefs that arise.

Practice self-care regularly, nourishing your mind, body, and soul. Surround yourself with people who lift you up and support your growth. And most importantly, be gentle with yourself. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is confidence. It's a journey, not a destination, so give yourself grace as you navigate the ups and downs.

True confidence isn't about pretending to be someone you're not or seeking validation from others. It's about embracing who you are, trusting yourself, and stepping into your power unapologetically. So go ahead, beautiful soul – trust yourself, embrace your self-assurance, and watch as your confidence soars to new heights.
