Growing up, I struggled with Confidence. Growing up in a prominently white neighborhood, not many people looked like me and this made me want to just blend in and look like everyone else. I wanted to straighten my hair, cover up my freckles, and try to talk in a different vernacular. I hate my dad for the ‘Skinner’ nose and overall just wish I could be invisible.
My…my….my….. how things have changed!!!
I am so Confident now that sometimes people think I am ‘stuck up’, conceited and unapproachable. I don’t like this either but it is what it is…..for I am a CONFIDENT Capricorn!
I AM CONFIDENT!!!
When I walk, I walk tall with my head up, chest out and with an air of Confidence.
I am Confident in who I am;
I am Confident in what I am capable of;
I am Confident with my short curly hair;
I am Confident in the freckles on my face (yes black people have freckles too!);
I am Confident in my big nose;
I am Confident in the way I speak (I speak proper English, NOT ‘like a white girl!);
I am Confident in my beauty (on the outside and on the inside);
I am Confident!
