If you act like a person other than who you are around others, this can show a lack in self-confidence. When you start to feel insecure around others, remind yourself that it’s more than okay to be you.

It will bring your confidence in yourself levels up – big time! If you feel uncomfortable or vulnerable, keep spending time with the people you feel most comfortable around until your insecure feelings start to disappear.

Be kind to yourself – unconditionally love yourself. This means getting rid of any negative thoughts you have about yourself and by getting rid of any self-criticism you make about yourself. Start paying attention to your inner voice and how it reacts to your actions. To be kind to yourself, your inner voice should be kind and accepting.
When you love yourself unconditionally, you can trust yourself unconditionally, which builds your self-confidence.
Trust in yourself means you can do more of the things you know you’re great at and you can do less of the things that you aren’t great at. If you’re not sure what you’re great at, ask those people closet to you – spend more time doing those things and build your trust that you’ll excel at those things,
When you don’t trust yourself, you might avoid spending time looking inward. Break the habit of looking away from yourself by patiently looking inward.
You’ll help your mental well-being by doing things you know you’re great at with high self-confidence. You’ll love the self-confidence you’ve gained by trusting yourself and you’ll unconditionally love yourself. GO YOU!
