Working on one's weaknesses is one of the most important things in growing as a person. A weakness that I have, is the ability to express my confidence at an even level. As a child, I had an abundance of confidence, or I guess you could say, a lot of energy. I had no problem expressing myself, but as I started to grow, I began to notice that other people saw my confidence, as an annoyance. As I was harassed repeatedly for being happy and confident, that side of myself started to drain, and at some point I can say that I might have had almost no confidence whatsoever. No desire to be expressive of how I felt, and up until this point in my life, I have found many struggles in being confident, or even just enjoying things and being myself for once.
However, in this class, we've been learning many different ways to be confident, and maybe not so many as far as being expressive, but there have been plenty of different strategies being thrown at us to just think about, and possibly give us a reason to attempt to become more confident as a whole.
