Self-Confidence Habits That Actually Mean Something

Hey Cats,

We’re often told that in order to increase our self-confidence, we simply need to tell ourselves the right thing. We might hear suggestions such as ‘just be yourself!’ or ‘don’t be worried!’ or ‘there’s no need to feel shy!’ However, often these suggestions mean little, and are hard to implement. Almost no one hears them spoken, and immediately feels better. If anything, statements like that just make us realize how ‘irrational’ we are being, even if that’s a completely false feeling to keep.

If you want to develop your confidence, empty platitudes mean nothing. Of course, personal positivity and self-acceptance can help you get started. If you wanted to lose weight, feeling awful about your current shape isn’t going to help you lose the weight, provided you know a change needs to be made. For this reason, self-confidence must always be refined with a sense of maturity. Here are some tips to help you do just that:

Body Positivity

We all know that body positivity is important to practice, so long as we also commit to living a healthy lifestyle. You should always feel confident about your curves, but of course never use that to justify an unhealthy weight. However, there are other ways to help you feel gorgeous no matter your shape. Practicing this can help you develop much more of a healthy relationship to your body, flaunting both your perceived weak points and strong points with love equal to one another.

You may decide to take it slow, such as wearing something more flattering when headed on vacations. You made decide to stock up on bluebella with Lingerie Outlet Store options. You may decide to book a photoshoot for no other reason than to teach you the fabulous art of posing, and to come away with a set of photographs you’re truly proud of. All of this can help you once again reinforce your personal beauty - and that’s an amazing thing indeed.

Treating Yourself

Treating yourself at random with no questions asked can help you identify your self-worth. Many people only wish to treat themselves when they’ve earned it, and that’s a healthy attitude to have too. But, once in a while, a simple carefree treat can help you remember your personal worth, and help you remember that sometimes, you don’t need a reason to be gifted something. You needn’t spent too much money in this habit. Just one small, targeted effort can help you feel more comfortable in the long term, and that is a confidence and self-love habit you may find real use in.

Surround Yourself With People You Respect

Without people you respect around you, you’re going to be hard pressed to confirm your self-worth with others. There’s almost nothing better than a fair and honest friend praising you for something, and bringing that emotional core to the life of someone else. No person is an island, and sometimes you really do need that opinion of someone you deeply love. You may not always like their pure honesty, but good friends will never lie to you, instead hope to build you up and help you develop your best self. Just having someone in proximity like this can help you feel much more confident in the long term.

With these tips, you’re sure to build reliable self-confidence over time.
