ON: HOW TO BE MORE CONFIDENT

Lately people have been asking for tips on how to be more confident and I kinda just want to google them, copy and paste them, and then make a bullshit post on how easy it is to be so.

Últimamente la gente me ha estado pidiendo tips para tener más confianza y como que me daban ganas de googlearlos, copiar y pegarlos, y luego hacer un post mega falso sobre lo fácil que es serlo.

But the thing is, confidence is a tricky bitch, I don’t think it’s a constant, not a fixed thing once you achieve it, I feel that self confidence is like the waves, it comes and goes, I feel like you can get it but you might lose it just as quickly.

Pero la cosa es que, la confianza es algo complicado, no creo que sea una constante o algo permanente una vez que la logras, siento que la confianza en uno mismo es como las olas, va y viene, siento que puedes tenerla pero perderla igual de fácil.

How do I know this? Cause I’ve had it during certain periods of my life, like at 17, or two years ago with my white hair, or last week when I went into the gym with no t-shirt and just a sports bra on.

¿Cómo lo sé? Porque la he tenido en ciertos periodos de mi vida, como a los 17, o hace dos años con mi cabello blanco, o la semana pasada que fui al gimnasio usando solamente un top de ejercicio.

When it comes to confidence, why does it seem like everyone around us has nailed it?
Well, not me, and I secretly think must of us are just faking it through life, doing our best impressions of what we might look/be like if we had that elusive and craved thing called “self confidence“.

Cuando se trata de la confianza, ¿por qué parece ser que todos a nuestro alrededor la han logrado?
Yo no, y en realidad pienso que la mayoría de nosotros sólo vamos por la vida fingiendo, haciendo nuestra mejor interpretación de como seríamos/nos veríamos si tuviésemos esa escurridiza y deseada cosa llamada “confianza en uno mismo“.

I don’t know what the key to feeling confident with yourself is, and I’m not quite sure there’s a secret formula or a bunch of steps you can follow to achieve the much desired feeling, what I do know is that it is something one must work on everyday, and I’d be lying if I’d made this a “10 tips to be more confident in yourself” kind of post, what I can tell you is that I believe that part of achieveing it is doing it for yourself, not for the rest of the world, I believe that working on loving yourself will get you there, and I believe it will not be perfect, but I think that if everyday you try your best at it, confidence will grow within you, and if you learn to accept that it might not be at its peak on a daily basis and that that is okay, you will do just fine.

Love yourself.
Be kind to yourself.
You do you.

No sé cuál es la clave para sentir confianza en ti mismo, no estoy segura en realidad que exista una fórmula secreta o un montón de pasos a seguir para lograr esa deseada sensación, lo que sí se es que uno debe trabajar en ello a diario, y les estaría mintiendo si hubiera hecho este un post de “10 tips para ser más seguro de ti mismo“, lo que puedo decirles es que creo que parte de lograrlo es hacerlo por ti, no por el resto del mundo, creo que trabajar en amarte te llevará a ese camino, y creo que no será perfecto, pero creo que si cada día das lo mejor de ti, la confianza crecerá dentro de ti, y si aprendes a aceptar que quizá no esté al máximo a diario y que eso está bien, te irá de maravilla.

Ámate.
Sé amable contigo.
Hazlo por ti.

  1. Thank you for this #realtalk Daniela. I absolutely agree, and I think that self confidence is hard to define in that it may mean different things to different people.

    P.S. I’m totally obsessed with your eye makeup in this shoot!!
