When I got sober, I did not feel confident…I felt much the opposite. What I had portrayed as confidence in my past, was a false identity fueled by fear, drugs, and alcohol.

In order to feel confidence, I needed to feel good about who I was. This meant I needed to feel good about my behaviors, and the way I treated other people. I began committing healthy behaviors and working hard to accomplish my goals. I was intentional about being helpful toward others, so I started to become someone I could be proud of. As I did these things, I would remind myself to continue and I would affirm my own positive behaviors to myself each morning.

Affirming and encouraging yourself is important!

The most important part of this process was having my heart in the right place. I needed to know what I believed, and why I believed in those things. Standing firm on my beliefs allows me to commit healthy behaviors and to avoid toxic environments, with confidence. I believe otherwise and I know better.

Do things you can be proud of, and treat other people the way they should be treated: with kindness. Stand for something and stand firm!

Be confident!
