She Who Needs to Believe in Herself
This week, three different people said the same thing to me. "Joti, you need to have more confidence in your abilities."
This may be surprising because I am, after all, putting pictures of myself on the internet and blogging about my life.
If only pictures could show how someone feels inside.
I have always struggled with confidence, worried that I am letting someone down or not doing a good enough job.
Confidence is something that takes time and is constantly evolving. I need to remember to put things into perspective and not be so hard on myself. I often have high expectations, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. However, I have to learn to be okay if things do not turn out how I initially envisioned them. I also need to celebrate my accomplishments and recognize the positive instead of focusing on the negative.
I am lucky enough to have people in my life that remind me of this.
