Journey To Me….

This is the journey to me…

You may all be looking at this title of this blog and wondering what I am going on about. Well what I really mean is finding yourself, who you are, what you believe in, what you like and if you feel comfortable with it.

I’m 23 years old and I truly still believe that I can’t answer these questions. I always find myself looking at other people who do appear like they truly know who they are. And do have the confidence to just be themselves.

I do often sit here and think how I am perceived by others. I have been told by people that I am confident, I suppose in certain situations regarding my work I am because I put a lot of time in to what I believe in, but most of the time I don’t think I am. Sometimes in life it is hard to be confident when people always want to put you down all the time but I always told that you need to get back up and dust yourself off. These knock backs make us stronger and who we are.

For an example take this blog, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what I should do and if I should even bother to do one. But writing articles/blogs is very important to me something I really enjoy doing. At first I was worried/scared about doing it in case no one read my articles. I’m always scared of what people may think of me. I know this sounds silly, but it is all very real to me.

Since starting this blog back last year I do feel like I have grown as a person and have became a little more confident. I know there is a saying that goes a bit like this: Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. I was told this saying by someone very special and it has stayed with me and will stay with me for the rest of my life.

These are a couple of quotes that I think are amazing and ones that I always remind myself of.

I do believe my journey to self discovery will be a lifelong mission, as life does change people and we all grow as people. I believe no one stays the same. Life is very short and you need to make the most of it.

I do know there is a lot I don’t know about myself and I always enjoy testing my limits and try new things. I love exploring new theories. At the moment I know I will settle for the things I do know and I will always take comfort in the fact that people who are close to me love me for who I am.

What I would really like now is to invite people to share their thoughts and stories relating to this. Are you a confident person? If so, how did you get confident? What did you do to reach that part in your life? It could be that your confident in one thing but not another? If your insecure, why are you insecure? What things are you doing to overcome it?

I would love to hear your stories, so please get in touch you can comment below, message me, email me if you prefer or you can post anonymously. You don’t need to have a blog to do this. Is is open to everyone who wants to share their stories. I’d love to hear from you!

    Some of us may go through our entire life trying to discover who we are and never find it. I only started to get to know myself in my 20s and only recently I have started to care less and less about what people think of me x

    I am definitely self conscious about my writing, my blog, and sharing my personal thoughts. And even at 40 I think I’m still discovering who I am. It’s definitely a lifelong process. But I think the fact that you’re thinking about it and working on it is such an amazing thing at the age of 23!!!

    At this stage of my life I am confident and self-aware of my abilities, but it took time, many disillusions and two careers to come to it. The secret is to get rid of toxic people in your life and keep the positive ones close.

    Great post! I’m confident, mentally. I mean, I’m good at words and ready to answer basically to anything but when I look myself into the mirror all the confidence disappears. I’ve been that way for a really, really long time. I’ve always hated one part of my body, my breasts and they are making me insanely insecure. Thank goodness, I’m on my way to feeling better, booked an appointment to the doctor and hopefully get rid of these before Christmas.
