Confidence | What The Heck Is It & How Do You Get It?

This post is sponsored by Tees in the Trap in collaboration with Slay Culture University. All opinions are mine.

A few months ago I was talking to a friend about self-esteem.  So, I tried to offer some advice (unsolicited of course, y’all pray for me). But as I started to share tips I realized, I don’t even know where to start. Like, how does one become confident? What is it even? Is there a class you can take for that?

I love definitions and etymology; if I can understand a word, I can use it and implement it better. So, of course, I researched confidence gathered that it’s basically self-assurance and trust.

I wish I had a list of tips or a how-to guide. Shoot, if I did I would package it and send it back in time to my 12-year-old self. I’d even read it now, I could stand to be more confident in some areas in my life. But I don’t. What I have learned over there years and based on the definition, confidence is something that grows with time and the right environment.

As we grow through phases, we also grow in self-acceptance, assurance, and trust. We spend more time with ourselves so we learn ourselves. We care less about what others think of us and more about what we think. I know the older I get, the less I care about who says what. I love who I am, yet open to growth in areas where I need to be better. 

Now at 25, thanks to Tees in the Trap, I confidently rock who I am loud and proud on my chest, well my thigh. From My little bougie ( a lot bougie actually) side to my Christ-loving side, it’s all me and it’s all dope.
