Confidence: Behind the Smile.

To me, confidence is something everyone strives for and yet is somewhat looked down on, envied and judged. Is it really achievable? Or is what we really portray is just acceptance of who we are and our situation right then in that very moment.

What really does this mean right now for most of our society?

Just because someone’s posting what you would see as “good” photos, lots of positivity and smiles, or the most beautiful things, just remember that there’s still a life beyond the camera. When on social media, people tend to post the happier times, where they feel good about themselves, also to inspire or motivate others; Especially in the fitness, yoga / mental health community. But when we see this, particularly when we may be in a low mood, it can be hard to see others with said “confidence” and subconsciously we envy them, and automatically think they have all their ducks in order, or their life is perfect.

Maybe a reason they’re posting such things, could be to try bring back a good feeling, possibly to mask that they’re sat crying or hurt or anxious as hell to click that post button. Point being – we never know whats actually going on in someone’s life, so don’t judge anyone based on what they chose to show. Its not even half of it…
