As A Matter Of Confidence

April 24, 2015

I think a lot of my problems with anxiety and shyness come from a lack of confidence and since anxiety loves sapping any shred of confidence I might have…well…you have a recipe for some shitty moods. So I was digging and took a ‘rate your self-confidence’ quiz. I achieved a 42 which is higher than I thought I would be. And then I took that info and went to their tips section and one was to list out 50 things that you love and admire about yourself. I struggled. I can list all of my faults very readily, but when it came to my own self-worth I’m just shit at assessing my better qualities. After some thinking and feeling like I was constipated (really, try thinking of 50 things you like) I managed to get to 50.

Keep in mind these are qualities I love about myself that mostly come from what people have told me over the years that they like about me and I do see them in me. I don’t think I’m going to put them on 10 cards and shuffle them around and look at one card a day until I finally start to believe. But I am going to press myself to see the positive in me. I need to–it’s all I’ll ever surely have is me. Soo…without further adieu…my ego trip:
