What even is self confidence? Where do I find confidence? If I am confident in myself, does this make me arrogant?
As long as you walk in the perspective of comparison, you will never find your confidence. Confidence is not a competition, nor is it something you can buy from the store, or steal from someone else.
Confidence is a consistent walk and state of mind. Confidence is not arrogance, but comes with a humble authority.
The confidence you carry with you is a byproduct of the value you place within yourself. Finding your confidence from the validation of others is only temporary. Temporary validation is like putting your money in the stock market. Sure, you can make a whole lot of money in a short amount of time, but you're also risking losing it too with how quickly stocks fluctuate.
Friend, don't let your confidence be found in temporary validation. You are worth so much more.
