Have you ever bought a piece of clothing that you thought was gorgeous, put it on the next morning, and decided that it would better fit in your closet?
It is very difficult to see yourself in something you really want to wear if you do not accept yourself in it.
Everyone has natural flaws that cannot be erased no matter how hard we try, and that’s okay.
It’s what makes us unique. It’s all the better to put on something that best fits who we are and our style as a person.
You might be wondering why you would wear something that you simply do not feel confident in and only ever thought about wearing around the house to make yourself feel good.
When you put on that dress, blouse, or pair of jeans in your home- doesn’t it make you feel wonderful?
If so, why not feel that way everywhere you go?
Whether it be a new style you’re trying out or you’re struggling with a negative perception of your body, there are ways you can make yourself feel confident in the clothes you love.
Your confidence will falter if you do not believe in yourself.
Smiling, and walking with your head held high everywhere you go will, you give the impression that you are untouchable.
No one’s opinions could affect your own, and that’s how it should be.
People will place their negative opinions on the ground in front of you.
Instead of picking them up, step on them with those new shoes you doubted were right for you.
It makes all the difference.
Repeat a Positive Affirmation in Your Head
Whenever you feel yourself shrinking down and your confidence fading, tell yourself you are beautiful and that no one can take that away from you.
Treat yourself like you’re the star in the sky that shines the brightest.
Even standing in front of a mirror, in the outfit of your choice, before you leave and repeating several positive affirmations to yourself can be very beneficial in boosting confidence and self-esteem.
Ignore everyone but yourself. You are what matters.
Remember that you didn’t go out in that outfit for anyone but yourself.
All others’ opinions don’t matter, and their pointless stares are irrelevant.
What matters most is that you are happy and comfortable in the clothing you’re wearing.
It is much better to ignore all other thoughts that are not your own.
If your own thoughts are negative, especially when perceiving yourself, knock them out and replace them with positive thoughts filled with love and kindness.
Gaining self-confidence in an outfit or a piece of clothing you have avoided for a very long time cannot be done overnight.
It is very easy to feel as though you are not doing enough, even when you are.
Constantly practicing switching that little negative voice in your head to a little positive happy one might seem overwhelming.
But in the end, there is nothing more valuable than loving yourself and having the confidence to show for it.
As long as you believe in yourself and find the true beauty within everything you do and wear, you can achieve anything.
