Lacking confidence? Shy and introverted at events and social gatherings? Here are some tips for you to get rid of all your inhibitions and become a strong, confident personality.
Don’t confuse confidence with over confidence
First of all, you must remember that you cannot confuse confidence with overconfidence. There’s a very thin line separating one from the other. It’s impudent, cocky and even unattractive when a women bloats with excessive confidence. Have a quiet confidence, the kind that is subtle, but is obvious at first glance. An air of quiet confidence and sophistication is always appealing.
Open your mind
Confident women are receptive. They are open-minded. They listen to what others have to say, hear their views, understand them. They don’t think too high of themselves. They consider the opinions of others too. So learn to listen. You must always remember that there is always something to learn from everybody.
Nobody is perfect
As a confident woman, you must remember that it is our imperfections that make us perfect. Everybody is flawed, but we also have our strengths. So forget your flaws, and work on your strengths. Most confident women are too busy making their dreams come true to sit and whine about their flaws. So get up, grow up.
Don’t be sorry
Confident women know where they went wrong and where they went right. So if they are right, they are never sorry. Never sorry for how they feel, what they did, who they loved or what they chose to do. So don’t apologize for getting angry one day or crying the other. Don’t apologize for falling in love or quitting that boring, old job. You are the owner of yourself, and you decide what’s best for you. Therefore, you owe nobody an apology.
Confident women do not go out of their way to please people. They know how to say no. When somebody asks you for something you cannot give, be it your Boss or your spouse or your friend, politely refuse. No is a two-lettered word that can be said easily without worrying about infuriating other people. If you know what you’re doing is right, then you need not care about what others might think or say.
Don’t be afraid
Women of confidence do not fear opening up to love. They are not afraid to be vulnerable, to speak their hearts out, to open up, to feel a certain way, to get their hearts broken. And neither should you be. Live life without rules and fears hindering who you want to be or how you want to feel.
When you need help, just ask for it. Be confident enough to ask for help and assistance when you need it most. Every human being needs help from time to time, and so do you. Nobody can get everything done on their own. There’s nothing bad about needing support.
Help others too
Not only do women of integrity receive favors from others, they also reach out to every friend or foe in need. Doing good to somebody will never harm you. So help and support everyone around you, be it a stranger or a long-lost friend, a family member or an office colleague. As a confident woman, you too should do good for the society and assist the people who make it up.
