no, I was just being sarcastic in responding to a question that is truly on a personal level. Although, if you want a deep answer that is extremely too thought out......I will tell you........merely understand what hinders you from revealing your true self, being sincere in who you are, and when needing to be confident in a conversation merely be or have a passion about the subject at hand, in which is unbreakable or undying.......not in an aggressive way, but rather an assertive way. so sure my advice is, sincerity, passion and a nice personality component called assertiveness. All in good fun was my previous advice :)
If you don't feel like you like things about yourself, you need to try to find things even more so. You can't have a good sense of self-confidence if you don't like anything about *you*.
So.. what things are you good at? What are things you enjoy doing? Are there any physical aspects you like about yourself (eyes, hair, etc)? Are there any things you've done that you're proud of? If you don't have any, what are some things you can do that can help you to achieve what you want?
It takes work, but you can do it. And I'm sure there are awesome things about yourself. Sometimes they're just hard to notice. :)
Here are some ideas that I use:
- Stop negative self-talk (don't criticize yourself).
- Accept yourself as you are.
- Find things about yourself that you love and write them down. If you have a cruddy day, focus on those things.
- Have a day or two every week where you pamper yourself and have *you* time.
- Remember that no one is perfect.
- Accept compliments.
minite_love buy a new brain......I have heard Wal Mart is going to start carrying the latest upgrade that includes confidence. The best part is they will go on sale a few days after being in stock.........but no on a serious note.......tell me when that really happens, hell you can find everything else in Americas retail world, safe to assume that is soon??
As strange as this seems (I didn't believe it when my mom told me this, either, but she was right)...get out there and do things for others less fortunate. Volunteer...do good deeds, help another student with a class...there is something about doing for others that builds confidence, generates self-worth, and gives a person a sense of well-being.
The fact that you like to help and listen to others means your a caring person. Other poeple will notice this.
Who cares if your loud! Have fun and be yourself. (but don't be too loud-you'll annoy others around you).
As for being social, just be yourself, don't do anything because others are, unless you want to.
Negative thinking=negative life
Try giving yourself a makeover to feel good. Go shopping with your friends and get some pretty clothes. Also, exercising makes you happier, it realeses endorphines from the brain. Chocolate in moderation also helps:)
Don't worry, be happy. Lifes too short to worry. Have fun :)
um im a good listener and im a great help but i have a bug mouth. My friends dont really say what they like about me and my family either. im not very social and im always sad at first but i hate the way i act when im not shy anymore cuz then i feel like im just obnoxious and loud.
Then have one friend over, Sometimes it's good to bond with one friend at a time. I think you should have a girls night in and give each other makeovers and tell each other what u love about the other. I'm sure your friends will give you an ego boost you'll never forget. :)
lol cant because my house is too small to do that and my friends are usually busy wen ever we plan to do a sleepover but not at the same time its just a couple who end up not being able to go.
lol that would work but my friends are not like that me and my friends are a mixture of stereotypes its kind of funny but we all love each other. But i doudt we could give makeovers.
ok thanks i really like your advice and im trying so hard to get out of this negative situation im in and im pretty sure i put myself in it.
you don't like anything? What do your friends like about you? your family? I''m sure you have many good qualities.
my moms mom never let her go out when she was around my age because or safety so she is doing the same with me.
yes that is true and those advice would be good if it wasnt for me never being able to go out with my friends
ok and thanks that was good advice and im realizing things that i do like.
what if you dont like anything about yourself?
huh? you kind of lost me sorry
Believe in yourself.
have a sleepover :)
may i ask why?
