Hey guys! Welcome back. I just wanted to thank you so much before we get started. I absolutely was overwhelmed this week. My followers grew, people were commenting, and I really felt like I was accomplishing things. So thank you for being here and supporting what I do. I really can’t thank you enough.

But today’s post is about insecurity. I have never been the most confident and secure person. I have a lot of issues with who I am. It really just stems from my past and the abuse I endured as a kid. But throughout the years, nothing ever really got better. High school was literally the worst four years of my life because everyone knows high school kids can be mean.

So I’ve battled insecurity for a long time. Even as a little kid I was uncomfortable and shy and awkward. I didn’t have many friends. And I didn’t really have supportive and encouraging parents. They just kind brushed everything to the side, so naturally that started becoming what I was doing. It wasn’t the best habit to pick up, but there really wasn’t much I could do about it.

However, when I moved away for college things started changing. Almost immediately. My first week of classes I made 6-7 really good friends and I made more friends throughout the year. They really do mean the world to me. They helped me grow and become a more confident person. They showed me the possibilities and opportunities and what I was capable of. They showed me what it means to be strong and independent. I am eternally grateful for every single person I encountered my Freshman year of college. They really shaped me and helped my personality come out.

My confidence has continued to grow and build. I have seen such progress. Blogging definitely helps. And it helps to know that people are actually reading what I write and enjoying it. I love doing this and I love being able to say what I want to say. It’s not much, but I do what I can to the best of my ability. My insecurities have become less. I am growing into the person I am supposed to be and I could not be more excited.

Thank you to everyone who read this. Please like it if you liked it. Comment below your fights and struggles with insecurity and how you deal with them. I really hope you enjoyed this and I hope you come back. Please follow if you are not already and I will see you next time.
