Today in class, it was our english lesson when the teacher started asking questions.
She signaled a girl to stand up and answer the question.
When the girl answered the teacher said "Are you sure?"
At that moment even though her answer was correct she began biting her lip and evidently started doubting herself.
That there is lack of self confidence.
Now what is the difference in between Confidence and self confidence?
Confidence is the ability to speak out loud, to speak your mind to the world, whereas, self confidence is the positivity that one feels when he is speaking, self confidence is that voice inside of you that says "You are right, you can do this!" you don't have to be an extrovert to have that feeling, you just have to feel good and strong about yourself.
Gaining self confidence isn't easy I admit that, cause I know that everyone doubts themselves even though they know they are right.
Though some people do have it but majority of the people don't have it... they overthink and doubt themselves, weather its about their appearance, something they said or did anything.
Even the most confident of people do it, but the difference is that they have learned to ignore that negative voice inside that says "Oh really? Are you sure? What if you fail?"
But that voice is wrong!
We are all creations of Allah and we are perfect in our own way.
You know? most people are generally shy when they lack self confidence. Not that being shy is a bad thing, but what im trying to say is that even if you prefer to stay quiet and unnoticed you should feel good about your decisions, the things you do and when needed speak. Speak in such a way that it makes a dynamic impact.
Im saying bury those insecure voices inside of you because they are wrong.
Stop doubting yourself and knw that the decision you made was the one you saw right in your situation.
All of us are special if not in one way then the other if not there then the other, all of us are special so stop hurting yourself from the inside and man up.
No one ever became a great person by doubting themselves, they all believed in themselves even after failing so many times.
So bury all those voices inside you, it may be hard but it is a war we all have to fight in ourselves.
