Self-Confidence

Post by The Brown-Eyed Boy »

For those of you that dont have any, what do you do to cover it up?

I act like a crazy moron and scream things like "I'm a Fairy Princess"

I would also like to know how some of you cope and what you do to get self confidence?

I suggest you read here

When I'm not confident I get shy/bashful or do retarded things. But the only way you'll become confident is to be confident. It's something I learned when I became a flight commander in high school.

When I'm lacking in self-confidence and I'm alone I tend to withdraw and not talk very much, but if I'm with friends I tend to go a little hyper (more than usual :heh: ).

As for what I did to gain some self-confidence, well, didn't really DO anything. To be completely cheesy, I have to say my friends helped a lot :) just having people accept me for me, quirks and all, did a lot, especially their acceptance of my temper/moodiness. Have to say those include the friends I've made here, don't think I'd be the same person otherwise. Love you guys! <3

You have to make yourself believe it first. Im borderline arrogant at times but people respond to someone whos assured of themselves.

Well once I know you, I don't really cover it up. But if I don't know you, I'm shy, and don't talk very much.
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

Well, I just sorta act crazy all the time, so its hard to tell when i'm covering up for my lack of self-confidence. And the fact that i dont think most people think that i'm trying to cover up...in fact most people think i have a ton of self confidence. Awesome pdf file Athos.

side note: im just curious what other people do......and I'm partially trying to get myself more self confidence.....partially though

For me i do what i do best put many different mask. One for every group i go in to fit in that group. I also try to pretend something that i am not really like. Cuz, im so scared that people will find out who i am really like and they would hate me but, also im scared to be to popular at the same time. Yes, i know doesn't make no sense but, thats how i feel like.


I had no self-confidence with nothing i do cuz, i think everything i do is wrong or just make someone upset. Everything i do or say to someone im afraid to do it wrong...like every day i wake up i feel like im walking of eggshells.
I found a good site to rp, games, movies, and etc. things that u can imagine talking about please join the site and get this site active again...

I lost a considerable amount of weight awhile back and then boosted my confidence by about 80 percent, and even though I've gained alot of that weight back, I still have that confidence


Whats the worst thing people can do to me?

Elect you president.
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

I just dont put myself in situations where it would be obvious that I dont have any self-confidence. :|

Aside from the physical appearance, self-confidence comes from the inner within. On the other hand, proper hygiene such as taking a bathe and brushing your teeth is another habit that would build up your self-confidence. :)
