I wouldn’t describe myself as unconfident. I’m sometimes shy, but I have confidence in myself, my talents and my abilities. There are certain things that can shake that inner belief though, making me question myself. And it’s often the smallest, most insignificant occurrences that cause cracks in my confidence.
Today’s outfit isn’t a true representation of what I wore – I changed out of this playsuit after taking these photos. I just felt… exposed. It’s not a particularly bold outfit. It’s not revealing or unflattering or even totally batshit crazy. Apart from the obvious peeing-in-a-playsuit difficulty, this is pretty regular get-up. So why the wobbles?
Part of it is just general girl stuff. Bad skin, need a haircut, overindulged at the weekend and playsuit feels tighter than usual, etc. But I also think it takes a hell of a lot of balls to put yourself out there the way fashion bloggers do, and scrutinising photos of yourself day after day could bring out insecurities in anyone. I’m not fishing for compliments or wallowing in self pity with this post, and I’m sure I’ll be completely over it tomorrow. I will not be defeated by a Primark playsuit! 🙂
Do you ever feel like this? Is it a one-off thing, or something that strikes you quite regularly? I’d love to know your thoughts.
