If you're hairier than you think you should be, try using a cream with acid, or maybe destroy your follicles with a laser, or take a pill to balance your hormones so that other people can look at you without being repulsed - don't worry about the hysterical depression that comes with it - it's worth it!
Everyone on this planet has a childhood story about low self-esteem and we often don't realise how damaging they can be in later life. Even the great and the good like Jen Lawrence, Jessie J and Rebecca Adlington have all come out saying they had troubled teen years. Low self-esteem is a major cause of eating disorders, depression, anxiety and addictions.
To build up confidence from within we are advised to put it on and wear it "like make-up" and "fake it until you make it". Although eloquent on paper, such advice isn't particularly useful. Is there anything more practical to help us feel more confident ahead of a nerve-wrecking interview or an important presentation?
When I got the call on a Thursday asking if I wanted to take part in a filming for Triumph's 'Women in Making' project as one of their 'real makers' the following Monday, I of course said yes. Since my last turn playing celebrity interviewer, I've been dying for a chance to get on camera and hear 'ACTION!' once again like an aspiring starlet.
You never step back and take a look inside yourself and ponder your shortcomings, instead you minimise, alter or deny them. You are not vigorously honest with yourself. You never pause and observe your behaviour without judgement. You are too busy taking everyone else's inventory, yet not willing to take your own.
Confidence isn't the easiest adjective to explain. But if I were to attempt to simplify it, I would say that confidence is a state of mind. Being confident is about possessing the ability to believe in yourself and what you are capable of. It's also about being able to trust in other people and an uncertain future.
Building a healthy self esteem can do wonders for your life. The way you deal with people on a personal and professional level are all affected by how you perceive yourself. Having a low level of self confidence may greatly affect your life; you end up having a harder time performing at work, maintaining healthy relationships, and enjoying life.
