When things begin to go wrong in our lives, naturally most people begin to worry and doubt themselves. It's extremely easy to fall apart at the sign of chaos, although we try hard not to. Maintaining confidence in times like this is crucial.
Remember giving up is not an option. When facing trials, know that there is always someone worse off and maintain a brave confident demeanor. You were not built to break, so keep going even when things may seem hopeless. Although it may sound cliche', life really is what you make of it. When you give up, you're not just letting your doubts and insecurities win, you're also displaying a sign of weakness. So put your brave face on, and step back into the game!
Confidence really is key. In all that you do, some level of confidence is involved, though you may not even realize it most of the time. Confidence dwells in everything from passing a test or landing a job, all the way down to something as simple as walking down the street. You have to be able to believe in yourself to exist. Without confidence, many of your day to day abilities wouldn't have been learned. Confidence is instilled in us from infant and toddler stages, with our parents and loved ones cheering us on to take our first step, and so on.
You cannot fully begin to know your self worth without confidence. Beware of those who possess "false confidence". A person that brags on their possessions and lives a superficial life may look and sound well put together, but this is normally just a cover up to throw the rest of the world off. The truth is that they don't feel like their true self is worthy of any importance, and feel that lying to everyone, including themselves sometimes, will give them a happier life. Confidence is truly believing in your ability to BE. It's knowing that you are just as important as others in your environment. It's knowing that there is no need to compete with anyone but yourself.
