I got my braces off last week, and it has already made SUCH a big difference to my confidence. I feel so much happier now that they’re gone! I never realised just how much I hated them!

I’ve just stopped caring what people think of me. I had my priorities all mixed up. My number one was what people thought of me. Now, I don’t care. My education, family etc. comes way before anything else.
I also used to be so image conscious it was riddiculous. For example, I wouldn’t go into college if I was having a bad hair day because I wouldn’t want people seeing me looking so bad. Now, my education is the most important thing to me so my image doesn’t bother me as much. For example, today I was waiting for the bus to go to college and I got completely soaked by the rain, and my hair was in a complete frizz, but I didn’t care because I had to go in and get a project done.
I just realised that I have no confidence only around certain people. Last week I went out with my old friends who I’ve known all my life and I had lots of confidence because I’m just so comfortable around them. It felt great! But then I started feeling nostalgic because I rarely see them anymore because we’re all so busy these days
Basically I’ve started to believe in myself more. I don’t know why I had (and sometimes still have) so little confidence in myself when I’ve accomplished quite alot. I think it was just social situations that freaked me out. If I was around people I didn’t know, I’d feel intimidated. It sounds ridiculous to me now, thinking back on it.
If you care less about other people’s opinions and learn to like yourself, then people will pick up on this. Do you ever walk down the street and know whether or not someone is confident or not just by looking at them? If they’re standing up straight and meeting your eye, you immediately get the vibe that they’re a confident person. Whereas if their shoulders are slumped and they’re staring at the ground, it gives the opposite impression.
Well, I’m determined to become that 1st person! :-)
just from dealing with difficult customers and not standing for all their shit. But I’m not nearly as confident as I’d like to be
These are the steps I need to take:
1. Stand straighter
2. Smile more
3. Believe in myself
When I do this I’ve noticed, people think I’m more confident, and then I start to feel more confident in myself :-)
I think the more you smile, the more confident you seem. I’ve been trying to smile more over the last week and have defintely noticed that people have responded to me differently. Even if you’re not feeling particularly happy (first thing in the morning is the worst for me!), if you start to smile it cheers everyone else up and you start to feel happy and confident too! ;-)
had more confidence this week, I’ve had to talk to lots of new people since starting uni, and it’s been good so far! I feel alot more confident because not many people know me, so they have no preconceptions and I can be who I want to be
I’ve tried to be more confident lately and I think I’m slowly getting there. And I’ve realised that people respond to you differently when you’re confident, they treat you with way more respect. I think the key is to stop caring so much about what other people think of you
