I feel almost guilty because...

I have so much confidence.
As a young woman of almost 18, I love my body, love my face, and love my personality.

I do get a lot of compliments on all three of these, but I used to hate myself. It took a while to garner this much confidence. But with so many other women hating themselves, their looks, their figures--it almost makes me feel like having a lot of self-confidence is somehow wrong, or something that I shouldn't own up to.

It's a double-edged sword--if a woman has bad self-esteem, society says "Love yourself!" If a woman has great self-esteem, others do what they can to bring her down out of jealousy.

I wish it wasn't that way.

  • you're probably beautiful on the inside if you can love yourself like that. but you should also wish other people would feel this way about themselves too.

  • Good for you, that's a brilliant position to be in!

    So long as you don't brag about it to others with considerably lower self esteem then you have nothing to feel bad about. Enjoy being you.

    And because you've been in the position where your self confidence is really low, you can maybe help others to see the good in themselves too.
