College is a terrifying and difficult concept for many of us. The most important thing is to remember to give yourself second chances, to forgive yourself if you ever screw up, and to unconditionally love yourself.
There’s a post on Tumblr that talks about self-confidence not only being a concept relevant to your appearance but also to the decisions you make in your life; that it’s important to be self-confident in the paths you choose for yourself- whether it’s deciding what type of person you want to be, committing to a career choice, defining your relationships, etc. I’ve thought about that post for a while and I’ve come to appreciate it and remind myself of it quite a bit. If I can find it again I will certainly reblog it because its lesson is so important to apply.
Stop apologizing. You don’t have to say sorry for how you laugh, how you dress, how you make your hair, how you do your makeup, how you speak. You don’t have to be sorry for being yourself. Do it fearlessly. It’s time to accept: this is you, and you gotta spend the rest of your life with you. So start loving your sarcasm, your awkwardness, your weirdness, your peculiar habits, your unique sense of humor, your voice, your talents, your everything. It will make your life so much easier to simply be yourself.
