"Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line." -Lucille Ball
Okay, I know I've already had a few posts regarding self-esteem, but this blog is called "Confidence is Key," so there you go. I think Ball's point is 100% valid. As long as you believe in yourself, everything else will work out! The feeling that you can do anything is very powerful: positive thoughts bring positive outcomes. Of course you may hit speed bumps along the way (hello, 6-months-of-umemployment-after-graduation), but in the end it's smooth sailing again (hi there, awesome job/apartment/city). And this goes with relationships, too. If you don't love yourself, why would anyone else? Low self-esteem is a huge turn-off for me: if he doesn't think he's awesome, then I won't think he's awesome (and vice versa). I see myself as a smart, strong, beautiful woman, and as long as that's how I perceive myself, the rest of the world will see me like that, too. So follow my lead and begin loving who you are. With that kind of attitude, you'll be unstoppable!
