Confidence. A topic I have been struggling with all of my life. Along the way, I learned to be confident. How?
First I needed to find my voice. I searched for it for a long time and in the end my voice was there all along. Being the one who tried to find it with my eyes closed, the result was that I was the person who was standing in my own way and I silenced myself.
Being made aware of my own behaviour, I opened my eyes and used my voice.
Claim your spot
After finding my voice and looking at myself with open eyes, I saw many great things. Seeing the little things, celebrating small milestones, made my confidence grow. Surrounding myself with people who also see me for me and hear my voice, made my confidence grow with the day. On the other hand I also needed to learn to cope with people who tried to break my confidence. I learned to claim my spot.
