Are You Suffering From a Lack of Confidence?*

We all suffer from a lack of confidence now and again. It only takes a certain event or situation to trigger these sorts of feelings. However, if this low self-esteem doesn’t seem to disappear, it can become a problem. A lack of self-confidence can stop you from living the life you have always dreamed about. With that in mind, read on to discover some signs that you are suffering from a lack of self-confidence.
You compare yourself to other people all of the time – One clear sign that you have issues with your confidence is if you are always comparing yourself to other people. Do you constantly compare the way you look to others? Do you pay more attention to people you believe to be more successful than you? All you are doing is allowing your self-worth to plummet by doing this. Stop focusing on the good in other people can concentrate on the amazing things about yourself.
You cannot handle genuine compliments – Do you reflect whenever someone pays you a genuine compliment? People that are confident will accept the compliment graciously. Try accepting compliments going forward.
You are constantly worried about a specific personality trait or a certain part of your appearance – Often, a lack of confidence comes from one source. You may hate your teeth, for example, or you may worry that people think you are too shy. This can cause people to retreat and become ever more self-conscious. The truth is, the only person that is worried about these things is you! If you really are suffering due to one specific thing, why not change it? You can have your teeth whitened, or you can have your teeth straightened with Invisalign clear braces. If you are worried that you are too shy, put yourself in situations where you need to meet new people. For example, join a local club.
You are afraid to offer your opinion in a discussion – Do you get scared to give your opinion during a conversation because you are worried about what other people will think? Stop over-thinking. Focus on your breath and never be afraid to say what you think. We all have different opinions and that is what makes the world such an interesting place.
You check your phone when in a social situation on your own – Last but not least, a lot of people with a lack of confidence check their phone when they are alone in a social situation. They do this so they come across more socially connected and so that no one thinks they are by themselves.
If any of the signs mentioned above sound familiar, you are likely suffering from a lack of confidence. This is something that you need to work on so that you can start loving yourself more and living life to the fullest.
