IF I HAD ONLY 10 SECONDS OF YOUR TIME
I would tell you to choose to be honest with yourself. Choose to accept that ignorance is a quality for the failing, who don’t use failing as a force for growth and alchemy.
When you arrive at the foot of your wisdom, that you truly being to live with compassion, knowledge and pure honesty.
THIS IS WHAT I REALLY THINK ABOUT BUILDING CONFIDENCE
If you’ve ever tried to write an ‘about me’ or description of yourself you may become stumped for words. I too found it tricky to write about myself – before cancer.
There is a stigma associated with talking yourself up. Phrases like ‘being up oneself’, ‘you have a big personality’ and “you’re too over the top” are just some of the things that confident people are told. It was when my 14 year old step daughter said to me “you’ve got tickets on yourself,” that I realised the lack of confidence that we see in social media (minimising every pore and the obsession with the perfect angle) manifests as outward remarks and sharp put downs, in an attempt to dilute a person’s confidence.
