Let’s talk about confidence – I used to believe confidence was something completely different than what I now believe it to be. My idea of confidence was that it was something you were born with, that came along with being bubbly, managing to never have an awkward moment, and overall just being very likeable. Something that in hindsight was completely artificial; it fed into my perfectionist mindset that perfect people were out there and that it felt unattainable to be one of those perfect people – but that’s because it was based on how I defined confidence at that time.

After going through some rather rough times in life, and having to make decisions that would project the path of my future, I realized that my definition of confidence changed – Confidence was actually just the ability to trust yourself and your decisions.

This was deep routed, not something you see on the surface always, and something that you had to practice. I believe confidence is silent, because it is internal. It’s how you talk to yourself when you fail at something, and its trusting that your decisions without the help or guidance of ANYONE else is enough, and will ultimately lead you to your truest path.

The idea of confidence ultimately is different for everyone. But this rings most true to me, and I feel as though under this definition, confidence was a skill I learned, something totally unobtainable, and something that is within you, especially during the tough times.

I’m curious – what does confidence mean to you?
