Another start of the week, another motivation boost post! :)
For this weeks quote I chose something that's really close to my heart. Because I have been in situations in which I have needed to overcome my insecurities and shyness. I might not appear as the shyest person, but in past I was extremely shy (teenage years), I was very insecure. But when I started studying in high school I somehow slowly overcame my insecurities and I have been building up my confidence since then. Though, even right now I don't think that I am as confident as I could be.
For example, I remember I had a really big crush on my current boyfriend, before we were dating (he actually had a crush on me as well! :D ). I remember how much I wanted to talk to him and make him notice me. I am very talkative with strangers or with people whose opinion isn't that important to me, you could even call me a social butterfly in those situations, but when I like somebody I want to hide under my shell and hope that they would notice me. But I guess that's not how it works, right?
So you might ask what happened? I gathered all my strengths and just started slowly chatting with him, at first I tried to be casual and ask about homework or university related stuff (we are studying together), then we appeared to be in the same party, so I snatched him up and we had the greatest convo ever, we found out we have a lot in common. Anyways now he is my boyfriend for over a year now.
But of course, love is not the only place where I have to put my brave face on. Job interviews, public presentations ( not the small ones, but with more than 50 people), new unexpected situations that bring me out of my comfort zone and so much more.
So, even though, I am scared, I want hide in my shell- at the end of the day I know it will be worth it!
Have a superb week!
