Every day I work with the so called poor, I realise that self-confidence and pride is the biggest problem keeping people down. Without dignity they cannot learn and grow, they don’t push forward. Most of our problems start with our own insecurity.
I struggle with the same issues, not in terms of public speaking, work, or who I am. But like every human being I hate the feeling of not being loved. As bad as it feels to be insecure, so beautiful and good it is to have self confidence and pride in oneself. To be happy with the person in the mirror.
Sometimes others add to that and sometimes other detract from that. We have to manage our own happiness by finding our beauty and joy inside.
The balance between brave and safe is very tricky…
