Low Confidence and Self-Esteem

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day and I've got a personal post for you today, I haven't done one in a while so I thought I would.

I think everyone at sometime suffers from low self esteem and confidence. I have slowly built my self esteem and confidence up but it has taken me a while and I'm still not fully confident.

When I was at school and because of bullying, I felt like there was something wrong with me and that I need to change myself to fit in but it's not true you just need to be yourself and accept everything about yourself including your flaws to become more confident and have self esteem.

Do what makes you feel more confident whether it's wearing your own fashion or makeup, I like wearing makeup just because it makes me feel more confident and pretty and I know it's not the best reason for wearing makeup but that's why I do. 

If you have really low self esteem, write a list of all things you like about yourself this will help you feel more confident, I know it's hard to think of positives we are very critical on ourselves so if you can't think of any ask friends or family they will tell you.

Do what makes you happy if you want to lose or put on weight then do it for yourself and do it for the right reasons, we all have different shape bodies but if your happy with it then you don't need to change for anyone.

You just need to believe in yourself and see yourself positively and this will build your self esteem and confidence.

Remember were all beautiful and unique in our own way.

If anyone ever needs to talk to me about it, I'm always here and you can email me at or tweet me at @ashleighcarrxx

I hope you found it helpful and that you become more confident and have high self esteem.

  1. I agree 100% with you, it takes time and you just have to find yourself, find who you are, what you like or don't like and what your interests and hobbies are. I've found that as I've got older, I care less about the people who don't care about me and this helps with the confidence too.
