The realities of life speak so much, but we chose to live the life that was handed down so that, we ourselves, remain slaves. We speak of the things we now stand for as if we have any idea where the root of our reasoning was derived from. We lost the most important thing that would refrain us from being vulnerable to this world of “slavery,” self-confidence, for only the return of self-confidence has the capability of affecting many in a such a major way.
We’re living in a society that dictates our every demeanor. The way we walk, the way we talk, the way we move. Blinded by the distractions of the “well-known,” we build ourselves to be a mirror of the person they were “built” to be. I guess they’re just doing their job of handing down “tradition.” The return of self-confidence enables one to regain control of self. Can you imagine what this world would be with billions of confident souls?
Think of a world where a woman respected herself enough to let her inside shine instead of exposing her skin. Think of a world where a man acknowledged and used his inner strength, rather than depending on his physique to solve his problems. Picture a world where the success of our neighbors, equals the success of ours…impossible, you may think, but it’s possible!
Through my life experiences, I’ve come to realize that the control of self empowers you, but had it not been for self-confidence, we’d never break away from “the in.” Think of a relationship with two confident people. Could you imagine how powerful they’d stand? When you’re confident, the words of others neither make or break you. When you’re in control of self, your actions aren’t dictated by the actions of others, rather, by the better judgement you posses.
The sad thing is…many of us are still waiting for someone or something to serve this confidence to us on a sliver platter, but the truth is, only we can manifest it. Although some may say, “Easier said than done,” I’m here to say that it’s as easy as flipping a switch. It’s nothing but a mere decision we all must make if we are to ever experience life in another light. It’s such beautiful thing when you can, not only grow, but also feel the growth in the process. Oh how I long for the return of self-confidence, don’t you?
