“Confidence isn’t thinking you’re better than anyone else, it’s realizing that you have no reason to compare yourself to anyone else.” ~Maryam Hasnaa⠀
Focusing on being the best me I can be always does more for my self-confidence than comparing myself to others.

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Strength, courage, and confidence come in doing the very things that scare you. As long as you let fear hold you back, you’ll keep giving yourself evidence of how you don’t have these things. The only way to change this is to get into action in the face of fear. Action comes first; the increase in strength, courage, and confidence come as a result, not as the initiator!
