Learn how to not let others shake your confidence, because true confidence is priceless! Having it or not having it will greatly impact your life.

I know from experience that as you begin to work on your confidence (or confidence in something) there will be people and situations that challenge this. But, I also know that you can overcome it.

Through these challenges, you will end up an even better version of yourself. If you rise above and push forward, chin up, still believing in yourself or your goal no matter what, you’ll come out on top. But, you must push forward. You can’t let anyone or anything sway your thinking. You must be anchored to what you know in your heart.

And, what do you know in your heart?

If you look deeply you’ll see that (perhaps buried) there’s a knowing of where you come from and of who you are (spiritually). Although situations and people may have told or shown you that you aren’t enough, that you’re unworthy, that you should bow your head in shame or just to others, deep down you know that this isn’t truth.

Believe in yourself, no matter what. This is not something that needs to change with the wind, to change depending on how others are interacting with you, nor to change depending on how things are currently working out for you. Believe in yourself! Because, none of the rest matters when it comes to this. This is something that comes from the inside.

4 Tips for how to not let others shake your confidence

Here are four tips for how to not let others shake your confidence. These things have helped me in my life, and I hope they inspire and help you too!

#1 Build up your confidence & remind yourself of your worth

Your spirit knows your worth. It knows where you come from and that you’re connected to the Most High Source of all and that you could never be alone and could never be unworthy of anything at all. It knows that you are naturally and inherently magnificent.

But, there are those that would have you believe that to believe this is being too proud or too full of yourself. However, those that would have you buy into this want you to be powerless and beneath them. They at least do not want to see you rise to all your glory, for your highest good, for whatever reason. But, ignore this.

Keep moving forward, head up, and keep reminding yourself of your value no matter what. Say, “I know who I am (I come from the Highest Source), I know what I am (I am a spirit living in a body, not a powerless or limited being), & I know why I’m here (to follow my passions & to create, to enjoy life & to learn).”

(The above affirmation was inspired by Paul Selig, a spiritual teacher and channeler. He says something similar, beginning with “I know who I am”, which has inspired me to say something like this when I need to ground myself and remember who I really am and what that means. So, thank you Paul Selig! He would also want me to say that he got this attunement from his spiritual guides, as he’s always sure to give credit to them. You can find him and his exact words on YouTube, or find his books.)

While building your confidence up you are learning and growing. And, by learning to believe in yourself you are overcoming – overcoming false beliefs put there by others and by experiences throughout your life. You are rising above in such a way that all of Heaven (or whatever you choose to call that dimension) will rejoice and say, “Yes!”

Yes! You have come here to do what you’re meant to do, because if this is challenging you then it’s for a reason. And, that reason is most certainly not for you to decide that you’re powerless or beneath others. So, lift your head up and until it sinks in always remind yourself of your worth.

#2 Know that you have the right to be confident & to love yourself

You have the right to be confident, so walk with confidence. You have the right to believe in yourself and in your dreams and the kind of life you want to create for yourself, so don’t let anyone shake that. This is your life – they have theirs. Live yours as if you are important and you are the creator of it, and from that position who do you paint yourself as?

If you’re the painter, the creator, who do you really want to be in this picture (in this life)? I seriously doubt you would “paint” yourself as unconfident and unworthy, if you’re sincerely painting what you really desire. No. You want more, you want the best for you.

And, you need to love yourself. I don’t care how anyone else treats you or has ever treated you in the past, you need to treat yourself well. It doesn’t matter what anyone else has refused to give to you that you needed, you can give it to yourself now. So, decide to do so.

You deserve love, and I promise you that by learning to truly love and value yourself you will naturally start turning more toward embracing your confidence.

#3 Get away from thoughts & people that make you feel bad about yourself

There will always be circumstances outside of us that we can’t do much about. I mean, we can’t make others treat us a certain way, with respect, love, and kindness. We can’t make others return the kindness and love that we put out. But, that doesn’t make us powerless. We have control of how we think and feel.

Now, I know it might not seem that way all the time. I know that sometimes, especially before really practicing controlling your thoughts and emotions, it seems almost impossible to have any control over this. But, I assure you that I’ve worked hard on it and that I’ve seen results. And, this means that you can too.

So, practice. Practice gently letting those negative thoughts about yourself, that others and life situations in general have had a hand in creating, go, and replace them with positive thoughts about yourself. If you’re around someone that doesn’t leave you feeling good about yourself, first of all do your best to get away from them as quickly as possible and then immediately counteract those negative feelings and thoughts with positive ones.

#4 Stand your ground, knowing your value & believing in yourself

The most important way that you can stand up for yourself is to rise above and raise up your head, no matter what.

Build yourself up. That’s what I have done, purposefully, and I promise you that it’s changed my life to where I finally feel good about me. Sure, I have my moments. We all do. But, at least they aren’t days anymore or it isn’t my natural state now to feel that I’m less than and not enough.

Although, for years it wasn’t even obvious to me that I was living in that lower state. We can get so used to things a certain way that we don’t even second guess it or notice it.

If you grew up around people (or are now around people) that constantly put you down in one way or another, you might be so “in it” that you don’t notice the depths of it or the effects of it.

So I say to you again, do not let other people shake your confidence! Stand your ground when it comes to knowing your value, knowing what you’re worth.

Now, I’m not saying to cause yourself conflict by fighting with people that are never going to “get it” or change. But, there are times to stand up for yourself. And, the most important way that you can stand up for yourself is to rise above and raise up your head, no matter what.

Believe in yourself, no matter what. This is not something that needs to change with the wind, to change depending on how others are interacting with you, nor to change depending on how things are currently working out for you. Believe in yourself! Because, none of the rest matters when it comes to this. This is something that comes from the inside.

Closing thoughts: How to not let others shake your confidence

I hope this blog post on not letting others shake your confidence has been helpful. I personally know that developing more inner confidence can change your life, as it can change how you feel about yourself, how you interact with the world around you, and what you will or won’t allow in your life (better boundaries).

I believe that we are all worthy of all the best, and I’m here to remind you of this like others that I’ve learned from (like online mentors) have reminded me. Always, always, always build yourself up. Be your biggest cheerleader. Sometimes, for some people, it’s like if you won’t do it who will.

You can make a big positive impact on your own life, just by learning to support yourself (this includes loving yourself)!

Know that I am in your corner here, cheering you on as well. And, also know that you are never alone. You have higher guidance, no matter what you call that guidance, and you are very loved and valuable.
