Getting to a point where one is confident and self-assured is not an easy task. I’ve struggled with having confidence in the past and I still do today, but working on my self-esteem has made that easier. Once I found my voice and the strength I had I was able to discover my power.
In my early years of high school I had bad self-esteem and I struggled with standing up for myself. I had been on the yearbook staff as a member of the sports section for several years and I wanted to be an editor my senior year. So after going back and forth on it I scheduled and interview with my teacher for the position.
At the end of my interview my teacher expressed that he felt I wasn’t editor material because I was quiet and he felt I couldn’t handle the job. His feedback made me mad because I knew I could do it. All of a sudden I just started talking about leaving the staff because I deserved that position and how good my past work was. At the end of the week he posted the position for editor and I was an editor.
I learned how to stand up for myself and be aggressive in going after what I wanted. Channeling that power has given me the strength to push found obtain my future and this blog. Without it I probably wouldn’t be a Diva.
