Be confident in your journey.
People have a version of you in their heads. When you try to be someone apart from that version it can be difficult and cause tension. People in your lives whether family, friends, or even coworkers, sometimes feel uncomfortable when you decide to try and find yourself and go outside of your comfort zone. That could be:
1. studying something different in school
2. breaking friendships or romantic relationships
3. quitting your job
4. setting boundaries.
When they see growth or change that is outside of what they are used to seeing they may discourage you and think that you are incapable of achieving those goals. Sometimes it is because you are holding a mirror to their face and showing them their flaws and all the growth that they need to do. Some are not ready to face that truth.
Being confident in yourself includes being confident in your abilities and being confident in your growth.
You must take risks in life to move forward because not everything is known to you. You don’t know the future. A choice may seem daunting, but that does not mean you should run away from it. Apply to that job. What if that is where you are supposed to be? You are stopping yourself from excelling because you are afraid of what exactly? Afraid of failure? What if you succeed? You have to be aware that God has established a path for you, and he will not lead you astray. Do not be anyone but yourself. Not your parents’ version of you, not your friends’ version of you, and definitely not society’s version of you.
Go find your purpose and live confidently in it.
