CON·FI·DENCE- belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance
I’ve come to a point in my life which I never thought would arrive, a time when I hold my head up high, and I don’t look down my nose at the same time. With my shoulder’s back I can now walk with confidence, not staring at my feet or dodging someone’s eye contact. My days are filled with serenity in knowing I won’t be coming home to a fight with a man who vowed to love me forever. I’m not afraid to sleep because of what haunts me or living with uncertainty. I don’t have someone working to break me down in everything he does. I don’t have to worry about losing my sanity. I take comfort now in coming home.
Confidence I think is the worst thing for someone to steal from another person. I know what it feels like to walk in my own dark shadow. To be held prisoner in my own body. I’ve experienced low self esteem, the feeling worthlessness and to be unattractive.
But the beauty of being in my shoe’s now is in the fact that my greatness has always been there. It was the little voice in my heart telling me that everything will be ok and that I will make it through. Most of those trying days, that voice was a low whisper to me. Some days all but forgotten.
When you surround yourself with positive people who don’t cut you down, except you for the wonderful person that you are, and you’re allowed to love someone with all your heart, wonderful things happen. When you cut the bad and hurtful strings connected to you, your wings spread and the blinders come off and the world awaits your involvement.
Love takes hold of your inner greatness, beginning the process of sealing the holes, stitching up the seams, and mending the wounds. Only then can you see yourself as magnificent and capable. Grab the bull by the horns, rope it in and show it whose boss! Be confident in yourself and everything will fall into place, home in your heart surrounded my all thing’s warm and comfy.
