How to boost your confidence

Evening my dear reader chums!

How to boost your confidence

 I've always been a really shy person and it wasn't till later that my confidence has grown. I think it's the whole concept of joining the sixth form and meeting new people which has really helped. 

Whether you're struggling with confidence or need some inspiration, here is how to boost your confidence.

Speak up in class/meeting

 I used to never do this as I was always scared that I'll be wrong and people will judge me but who really cares? If you have an answer/opinion share it with the class and see the outcome - it could be something nobody else has thought of and an absolute breakthrough.

Talk to more people

Don't isolate yourself so much and stick to your friendship group, say an occasionally hi to people in your year group and start a conversation when you're waiting for a class as you never know they may be really nice and you may have a lot in common. The same goes with the workplace - try and socialise outside your usual circle to meet new people and you never know, you may find a lifelong friend. When you're at a social occasion, introduce yourself to people you don't know, don't stay in your comfort zone with your friends, it will really help your talking skills by meeting new people.

Say yes to group outings

 If you're invited somewhere, go to it! Don't hesitate as you will be worried about who is attending. Live while you're young and have those experiences - it may be one of those events you speak about when you're old. Life is too short to stay in your comfort zone.

Embrace your insecurities

 I guarantee all of us have looked in the mirror and said eww at one point in our lives. There's no need to, next time you look in the mirror instead of picking everything you don't like out, think of what you do like and embrace it. Those flaws that you have make you, you, that's what makes you beautiful and unique, don't go and change yourself! Your body is beautiful the way it is.

Compliment people

If you notice someone's hair, make-up, clothes, etc one day and think they look nice to tell them what you think, it will start a conversation and will make the other person feel good as you never know you could have complimented their insecurities and boosted their confidence.

Volunteer with local shops or communities

Go and volunteer at a local charity shop or at a care home as it will give you experience, allow you to meet new people, and boost your confidence in new settings.

Don't listen to the haters

 People who usually bully or make fun of you are usually just jealous and would kill to see you fall. Prove to them you're the better person and go for everything you do in life, and try your best.

Stand up for yourself

 If someone is being horrible and has said something bad to you or a friend don't hide away but confront them about what they have done, bullies hate confrontation knowing that your not the weak person they thought you were.

Believe in yourself

Self-doubt is something we all do, it's natural but there's no need for it. If you want to achieve something set that goal and believe you can do it. Anything you put your mind to is possible - believing in yourself and loving yourself are the first two steps to making it happen.

Enjoy life

Very important point is to just enjoy life and don't let people get you down! If people are constantly putting you down you don't need them in your life, look for the people who will always be there supporting you.
