How to get SELF confidence rather than have other peoples opinions dictate your confidence?

By Guest Author On March 7, 2011 Under Self Improvement

I know confidence should come from within but I care deeply about what other people think of me to the point where Im highly self conscious and suffer from social anxiety!

How do I stop caring about what other people think of me and start building confidence from within?

Thank you!

You have to understand that peoples opinions constantly change and are always conditional. You are always you and there is never a time that you aren’t. So when people’s opinions of you change ( to good or to bad) don’t take them too seriously. Complimentary opinions are always pleasant but remember that you are not getting those because you’ve suddenly morphed into a somehow better version of yourself-it is only the person’s perception, which should not have any real bearing on who YOU are.

when you get up every morning get in the mirror & look at your self.
look online for some good quotes to say too yourself to give yourself
that extra boost of confidence you need.
just think,you we’re born in this world by your self & when you die
your dying by your self so therefore you need too live that happy life
that you deserve.the time you spend on earth is yours so live it
the way you want.

Simple line you could go over your head can help: such as "I am wonderful" "I can do anything" etc.

If you are the type of person who would dedicate your all your time for others, then making time for yourself can also help. You can do something productive, like practicing a sport or instrument or something that interests you – which builds your self value.

Stop pleasing others and start pleasing yourself.

i used to be very conscious before so these is what i can say to you….
you have to stop thinking about what other people thinks about you… First, most of those people doesn’t really care and doesn’t really give too much attention to anyone, they wouldn’t even likely noticed you.. secondly work on your insecurities… your not conscious on nothing, your conscious about something so work about it, if it is about your looks, then get some adviced on the internet or use make up, if it is about your weight, then exercise, or if it is about the way you dress, then dress more appropriately, if your worried about your communication skills, then think about these, your not the only one who is shy, most of the people you just met are really shy at first. self confidence is all about being comfortable and believing on yourself, you have to set aside those negative thoughts that you have.

I am actually quite self-conscious myself, but you always have to think there’s always someone worse off than you; whether it be looks, personality or social abilities. 😉
