I remember sometime during last year, I started breaking down during one of my shoots. I had to leave set to call my mom, 7000 miles away, as I was stressing out and dying on the inside. It was a time where I wasn't feeling confident and was higly doubting my modelling career.
My mom obviously calmed me down and although being comforted by your mother is like no other, I was convinced I wasn't worth modelling.
I had trouble accepting who I was because of stupid crtics from my surroundings, which is much normal for every model out there. I started seeing myself differently. I wasn't the confident boy in highschool who admired himself for his authentic self and looks anymore, instead I became an insecure man who looked in the mirror and saw nothing but ugliness and unatractiveness.
I truly started questioning my dream career and whether I was made to be in front of camera or not.... I started asking myself all these pointless questions like Oh why isn't anyone booking me? Why do they always turn down on me after auditions? Why do people judge me? Is there something wrong with me? Am I ugly?
And honestly overthinking things can be so dangerous it can almost change who you are and for a while, these questions kept popping in my mind almost every single day......but you know what? My beauty was always there. All along, I was atractive, smart, handsome and tall but I chose to see only the ugly and hideous.
Your mind plays with you so well when you let it. Something as powerful as your thoughts can almost ruin you, and it is only you who can choose between the positive and the negative. Do you want to spend your days all sad and depressed, or to go out there and preach for what you're wearing, your blessings, and your beauty? It all depends on you. Every human is beautiful and fortunate in their own way, we are all in this together and we all have abilities others don't, so get over it and move on with happy thoughts. You don't have to be on the cover of Vogue Magazine or anything, you just do you boo and just look at how you'll conquer the world that way.
I, for a fact, learned that if you are confident in your own skin, you will end up being the happiest you have ever been. So wake up every morning and look in the mirror, repeating something you appreciate about yourself 5 times. Hold on to that thought for five minutes and BELIEVE in it. Get back to me if you notice your day going 100 times better, because I guarrantee you it will.
The common issue amongst a good percentage of married couples is the partner feeling deep insecurrity within the relationship. This tends to push the other away for heavier problems in the future, such as cheating or distancing.
I know many people, who get uncomfortable when being complimented on and turn it into something like "Omg no way! I look like a disaster!"
Why do you immediately think of yourself as a "disaster" when you were just given appreciation for you physique? This behavior is so pathetic because you end up convincing them you are actually are a "disaster" although they may have not thought so.
Insecurrity in human beings leads to resisting love from anyone else, because as long as you think you're not beautiful, you won't be able to believe anyone will.
The quote says: " You need to love yourself fully before you can think about loving somwone else", and I acentuate to you (and myself) that confidence is almost key to every success. This speaks for everything in general, not only attractiveness. If you believe you are smart then you will perform better at school, if you believe in your skills you will use them to invent the person who you choose to be and if you believe in yourself, you will go higher in life! Much much higher.
