Life is not made to be a walk in the park. Some days are harder than others and we may feel worthless at times, but there are bright paths for all of us. There are ways to lead you to a better outcome every time you face a situation, and I believe the best way to do so is to face it with confidence.
Each person’s path to confidence is unique and can result in great outcomes, but can be easily changed. Life throws many different situations at you that can either help keep your path straight or can start to distort it. The downfalls in life, like a heartbreak or bad grade, will always disfigure your path if you are unable to find courage in yourself first. If you can’t respect yourself, stand up for yourself or worry about what others think of you, then those low points will keep you from being happy, killing your confidence. Everyone is different, has different personalities and different mind-sets. Most people want to create relationships with others, in friendly or romantic means, but in order to do so you must first be happy on your own and that comes with being sure of yourself.
You will never truly be happy if you cannot be proud of yourself around the people you interact with every day. Confidence is a strong tool that can help you through life in tremendous ways. The high points life throws at you, like getting that job or having a fun night with friends, will help keep your path straight. The key is to keep your positive points close and use them to help you defend against the negative ones.
When we learn to be happy with ourselves and are able to be happy with others, paths become more solid and harder to alter. The more certainty you have in yourself, the stronger you can become. The low points will come, but the more confidence you have, the better chance you have on keeping them from altering your path.
Self-assurance opens many new doors for people every day and helps keep people going strong. It can help you move on from things easier and help you to not look back. It can shape the outcomes of many things in our life like meeting new people, our performance in school, or even a job interview.
Having confidence gives you that comfort to show who you really are around others. If you keep an altered path, then you will never achieve anything better than what you have and what you have can be gone tomorrow. You must try to keep your path straight to have better opportunities open.
Again, everyone is different but there are a few common ways to get on your path to self-pride and keep it straight. First, don’t let other people’s opinions completely block what you believe in. Stay motivated with everything you do because God created you and made you to live on this Earth for a reason. Speak up for what you believe in but never diminish anyone else’s beliefs. Always try to remain positive in yourself and others. If you have problems with anything going on in your life don’t be afraid to ask for help. “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them” (Luke 6:31).
We all have different paths to follow to find our poise. Along the way there may be others who have very similar paths to you, but in the end, no one has a path like yours.
