Ok so I have always struggled with confidence no matter how many times people have told me so many complements.
Ok so here are some ways you can boost yours!
+Don't change for anyone; no matter how bad you feel about yourself, never be somebody you're not. You shouldn't feel the need to change who you are just because you want to be noticed. You are perfect the way you are and that unique part of you is how you will be noticed, embrace what makes you, you.
+Keep support close by. If your friends aren't making you feel any better about yourself, then tell them how you feel; they should understand. If they don't, then maybe you are with the wrong crowd, be with people who like you for you and don't ask you to change anything about who you are, even if they aren't the most popular people in the world.
+Treat yourself. Don't criticize yourself all the time, do things you enjoy and that make you feel happy. Exercising helps you feel good about yourself and your body. Yoga also helps raise your confidence in your body. If you aren't the energetic type, then you don't have to do any of these things, but even the simplest yoga shapes give you time to think and concentrate while exercising your body. If you start with simple yoga shapes, then you can move onto harder shapes or just try doing something that makes you happy, even if it is not something people do everyday; take time for yourself.
+Don't try too hard. Be patient confidence doesn't happen over night. Do stuff you want to do. For example don't slap make up on because all the other girls do it and you want to fit in or be noticed. Do it because you want to and because it makes you feel better and more confident. Never be pressured into anything because it's considered the normal thing to do. Take things slow and easy. Eventually your actions will pay off and you will notice that only will yourself feel better about you, but so will people around you.
+If you are in a real bad place, speak to somebody don't let yourself get depressed, speak to someone about your feelings; family, friends, teachers. Do not let anyone bully you or put you down. Speak to someone if you are being bullied or harassed. Most importantly, don't take every bad thing somebody says to you to heart, they are one person, don't let them put you down, there are many other people out there who will be ready to love you for you.
+Wear clothes that make you feel good about yourself. If booty shorts make you feel uncomfortable, why wear them? If you feel good in capris and a cute flowy top, then wear that. If you feel good in skinny jeans, then wear them! Have you ever picked out an adorable outfit at your house, and wear it to school. Did you feel that it was sort of ugly or to weird afterwards? Well what can you do? Your at school, so feel good about your clothes. If it really bugs you, imagine that nobody has your clothes. Your clothes are super duper rare and are adorable. Then imagine that everyone else's clothes are easy to find and are in many stores.
+Please, be good with hygiene. Hygiene is your best friend, you must take care of him. He stays with you your WHOLE life. If you don't take care of him, well he'll make a mess. Brush your teeth, wear clean clothes, Wash your hair daily or every two days. WEAR DEODORANT. Oops! I forgot to put on deodorant! Well? What are ya gonna do? Maybe it's a smart idea to keep it in your locker, or in your backpack. If you DO forget deodorant, try and find some lotion to put under your arms, or just wear a jacket. Keep your face extra clean, and kill those pimples!
+BE NICE. If you're not nice, it'll come back and haunt you. non-nice people are just lost. They don't know it's extremely rude and they also don't know it could hurt peoples feelings.
+Start taking risks, because every risk you take makes you a more confident and stronger person. However, understand that there are positive risks and negatives risks. Do the things that lead you forward toward your goals.
+Define what your goals are by writing them down. Set realistic, attainable goals so that you aren't let down if you can't accomplish everything at once. Take It one step at a time & Think positive!
+Practice good posture at all times (sitting, standing, walking), especially when you're walking alone.
+Make sure to keep your room clean. A clean room means that you can find what you need when you need it, so you aren't stressed out because you lost something. You will also feel better when your friends come over if you can show them a clean room. Nobody wants to see your underwear on the floor!
+Remember Make sure you always have pads/tampons in your bag at all times and change pads regularly to prevent accidents.
+Study, do all your schoolwork, and do your very best every time. Study for tests, do homework and all assigned reading. Answer questions in class and ask questions relating to the topic. Don't be afraid if you still don't understand what you're learning, talk to your fellow classmates or talk to your teacher. You can't pass your classes if you don't ask questions. Being smart is not weird. People who think so are not smart.
+Develop your talents. If you're good at dancing, take up a class and polish your skills; if you're good at sports, take lessons and join a team.
+Join some clubs if you're a good socialite or want to get over your shyness. It can boost your confidence level, help you develop your social skills, and help you make some friends.
+Forget any slights and don't take insults to mind. If someone calls you a mean name, shrug it off, however, if someone compliments you, take it in. Think about it.
+Practice looking at yourself in the mirror and saying, "I love you!" or, "Look at me...I look beautiful today."...you could grab a chair and sit in front of the mirror, and state all the good things about you, the things that make you a beautiful girl just the way you are. Don't compare yourself to other girls.
+If you are being bullied or abused by ANYONE tell someone! No one has the right to put you down. NO ONE. If there is no one childline are a great alternative. The number is 0800 1111, all calls are confidential, don't be afraid to call however minor or major the situation.
Hope you enjoyed it! :)
