How To Improve Self Confidence By Being More Care Free
I am Bronzi Sheppard from New Jersey in the USA. I was always somebody who had many confidence issues as I grew up, from a child, through to adulthood. I would feel very sorry for myself and would often be down and depressed.
The issues that I had in my life were:
Bald patches at my temples on my head
A widows peek
A problem with my speech known as a stutter
A weight problem, I was quite fat for my height
I am quite short for a female at five-foot-two
Certain people would take the mickey out of me, and their comments would hurt. I would always make sure they did not see my anger but inside I was crying.
These people were making my life a misery and by the age of twenty-two I had had enough. I decided I needed a big change in attitude and started to read books about life and about positive thinking etc.
These were the things I had to take on board:
It is not important what other people think of you, it is what you think that counts
You need to start to like yourself
There are various things about your person, you do not like but which you can not change. You therefore have to start accepting these things and realising that maybe there are other people in life who are more unfortunate than you.
You need to have respect for yourself
Do not accept second best in life
Learn to relax
Treat yourself to some pleasures. Like a regular massage or reflexology
The above tips helped me to become more positive and happier in life.
