I was talking to my friends about confidence and my level of comfort in my own skin. The above was my input on why I am the way I am, I must add a disclaimer: whatever I did not forget I took as an opportunity to do/be better. I guess I needed to do that because my biggest critic in all of life has been me. Me.
No one has been as critical of me as I have of myself in the past but I learned to be gentle with myself and I have always had a deep love and high standards for myself.
I am still learning how to help those that come to me seeking counsel in the area of confidence and self love but I can start with this.
Believe every great compliment that has ever been given and love every good thing about yourself and leave no room for negativity,
