  • you are one person on here that does not need more confidence. From what Ican read about you, you have enough even if its online. Maybe its out in the real world and maybe you can put that to use. I always read your answers and you have some awesome insight .I hope you don't take what I said the wrong way , because it was meant as a compliment.Maybe when you meet new people or people you don't like, you are just reserved and so are a lot of people. Why do you think you don't have enough confidence in yourself?

  • Try something new, maybe something you've been wanting to do but haven't for whatever reason. Push yourself . . . you may be surprised to learn something about yourself by doing something that's outside your norm. Once you have a little success under your belt or develop a passion for something, you'll develop the confidence you may be looking for. Good luck!

  • First of all, when you have time in the morning....put on some make up and style your hair nicely, and get dressed, even if you're a SAHM, if you look good, you feel good. Then do some motivational reading, it helps to figure out the root of the problem. Why do you lack confidence in the first place. Is it your marriage, was it your family, friends? Get rid of anyone in your life who makes you feel insecure.
    Take nice long walks...excercise is a big stress relief and it helps boost your confidence. After I had my baby I started to feel less confident and these things actually helped me.

  • Try just simply reminding yourself that you're beautiful just the way you are.
