It won’t matter how red your lipstick is, or how long your false eyelashes are, if you aren’t confident about how you look then you don’t look attractive. Someone who holds themselves in high regard, shoulders back and radiating happiness and warmth instantly bring more people to them than those who sit hunched over, eyes darting around. However, not everyone has great confidence. People can be content in who they are, but that doesn’t mean they are oozing confidence. It’s an asset that is obvious in relationships and you’ll find yourself gravitating toward and respecting those with confidence.
So, why does confidence matter so much? Can’t you just like yourself the way you are? Absolutely you can be happy within yourself, but there’s a difference between feeling happy with yourself and being confident about yourself. If you don’t have confidence in who you are, how can anyone else? Confidence can make you feel powerful, knowledgeable and you can engage those around you. There are a lot of things in life that bring people down; broken relationships, for example, can see self-esteem plummeting to the ground. You could find yourself trying to pick yourself up after a breakup and failing, because it can dent your heart and how you feel about yourself. You can find yourself wondering what’s ‘wrong’ with you, when there’s nothing wrong at all. People grow up and apart from each other and it happens all the time.
To boost your confidence after a relationship breakdown, going out with friends and aiming to love yourself will always work.

The phrase ‘fake it til you make it’ can work to trick yourself into feeling more confident, which then encourages actual confidence, but it won’t work all the time. Confidence encourages positivity and confident people always err on the side of the positives in their situation.
Improving the way that you see yourself will change your outlook on the world around you. Making yourself feel confident about who you are and how you look can take time, but you have to give yourself that time and make that time happen if you ever expect to feel belief in yourself. Confidence is the best defence you can have – a strong self-esteem will always protect you from your critics. Bullies and anyone else who will try to bring you down are clearly people who have issues with their own confidence and want to bring you to their level. Be strong, be brave, don’t be afraid and stand up straight – let your confidence shine through!
If there’s one thing that most people forget when they’re mentally checking off their appearance, is their confidence. Of course, confidence is not a physical feature in the same way lips or eyes are, but it’s definitely on the list of things you should include in your appearance. You wear your confidence with your body language and facial expressions, and if you are projecting low confidence and anxiety, everyone is going to see it.
