Gain Confidence Being an Introvert in 4Ways.
My shyness always used to get the best of me. Refrained me from making so many friends and reaching so many goals. Now, with time, I have a different mindset.
It’s not easy to be confident as an introvert. So, if you feel the need of a little confidence then read ahead and enjoy!
1. SMILE MORE OFTEN!
I used to hate my smile, I thought it was too crooked or my eyes squinted too much, but it’s great help when you socialise.
A smile makes you look so much more amiable and approachable. I was at a class once and I smiled at everyone through the pain and they returned it, maybe that’s because they sympathised with me but at least I wasn’t hiding away in the corner avoiding eye contact with everyone. Some people are like that, and maybe it seems a preferable option but a small smile can help you come out of your shell a lot more.
2. LOOK STRAIGHT IN MIRROR
Then, don’t look on Instagram right after. Notice what do you like about yourself? Ignore what you dislike; pay attention to your proudest feature. Paying attention at what you like is what you need to master before focusing on what you want to change about yourself.
Look in a mirror and find just one thing you like about yourself. Keep doing it everyday - the list will grow.
3. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK OR SAY ABOUT US!
We’ve heard it so many times and this is probably the hardest but it’s also the most important to being confident.
Like that orange top others have laughed at? Wear it! You’ll feel good in it and that’s is important! They won’t say to your face and that makes it all the easier to ignore, and if they can’t say it to your face then it’s not important enough to bother, so it simply doesn't exist! Make your opinion a priority, and by putting the two together, you’re confidence snowballs in no time!
4. FORCE YOURSELF INTO TALKING TO PEOPLE
Again, a difficult but it is effective task. Making yourself talk to others helps you find common interests and leads to more in-depth and exciting conversations.
Even if the conversation doesn’t work out with one person, at least you’re making an attempt and it’ll still help. With interactions you can broaden your view and soon you’ll find that socialising is one of your flairs.
I’m definitely more confident around my friends and they know my true personality whilst everyone else sees me as an introvert!
