Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 68’s Topic: Finding confidence.
It has always been something I have always found difficult to muster when I need it most.
What is confidence, in all honesty?
In a particular context, I think of confidence as being able to present yourself without hesitation. If you can just walk up to someone and sell yourself in a big way.
No need to put up a facade.
No smoke or mirrors.
You just go up and be you, the one and only, and act like you are special. Because deep down, you know darn well you’re special in your own respective ways.
This, to me, is confidence and then some.
And of course, having confidence means you are not afraid of what others will think of you. Your reputation precedes you. Or wait … Maybe, just maybe, you just give a great impression regardless!
I have learned over the years to stop being afraid of who I am.
I am a geek. I am a nerd. I am not like others.
I used to be so darn apprehensive and fidgety about being who I am. But in time, I learned how to be confident with just being me. I am who I am for whatever reason. I don’t like every aspect about my personality, but I will always attempt to fix the “flaws” I think need fixing.
But for everything else, either people learn to accept me or I just continue being who I am.
That’s all I can really be, right?
I have enough confidence to admit this, after all.
