Confession Time


I used to really hate having my picture taken, by anybody. Seriously. I was never as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one. That’s probably because when I was younger I was really shy, and I would never speak. I mean, I was an insecure little caterpillar(?). I had a gazillion thoughts, but I would never say them out loud. You wouldn’t recognise me, I’m a completely changed person now in a good way. I used to be insecure about my hair, my smile… you know, the whole puberty thing. It was a nightmare. I had exactly the same haircut as I did when I was, like 10, all through my teenage years. Cringe. But no-one mentioned anything about it so I assumed it was fine, except it wasn’t. I never want to look at teenage pictures of me ever again. You can’t make me. I never felt pretty when I was a teenager and I saw everyone else in my year group at school as beautiful and perfect, and I compared myself to them. I had a small group of friends in school, but I was so shy I’d hardly talk to them either. It was only really in college that I started to talk more to people, although I still lacked confidence. And then in my second year of university, after working a whole summer in sales, I grew up and my confidence came with it and now I’m a social butterfly and loving life. I can literally talk to anyone now and strike up conversations, and my friendship group is growing exponentially. And now I can look in the mirror and be proud of myself for how far I’ve come.

So if you liked this confession, CONFESS something to me in the comments!
