I write a lot about confidence around here. I do that because no matter how many makeup products or hairstyles a girl can have, confidence is the most attractive attribute. I talked about it a little bit here.
How to BE confident when you don’t feel confident
But the thing is, we don’t always feel confident. Things like zits or cold sores or scars can make us feel self-conscious about the way we look. That’s why today I’m excited to share with you some tips to help stay confident even when you don’t feel confident. Battling a cold sore can be such a bummer. Some of my closest friends are cold sore sufferers and I know the toll they take on confidence. That’s why they turn to Abreva® at the very first sign of their cold sore to heal it fast! Read below to discover simple ways you can keep your confidence high.
Confidence comes from within
This might sound all fluffy, but confidence comes from within. It comes from believing in who you are as a person. It isn’t dictated by what you look like. Confidence is knowing yourself, believing in the good and working your best to make improvements on the not-so-good. Also, confidence is not competitive. Confidence is knowing your worth, not thinking you’re better. You can know you’re pretty, but there is no need to compare to see if you’re prettier than the next girl. Because — news flash — you’re not the prettiest girl in the world. And that’s okay.
There’s beauty in imperfection
What if the world was perfect? What if no one had a flaw? What if we all walked around perfectly all the time? Now, that sounds fun in theory, but that wouldn’t be very interesting at all! Instead embrace the imperfections and have confidence in yourself at your core. Now that’s beautiful! It’s what makes the world go ’round. And that’s how we have relationships and make each other better. My husband is so opposite of me, but we refine each other and as time goes on, we make each other better. If we were perfect, there’d be none of that!
Take care of it
Some things we can’t change, but for those things that we can – do it! If you have a zit, slap some concealer on that bad boy and go about your day. Bad hair day? The messy top knot makes it look like you meant it to be that way. Cold sore? Treat it with Abreva® Cream at the first sign. With the help of Abreva®, we can handle cold sores quickly and not let them get the best of us!
