Feeling good in your own skin is so much more than being confident in how you look…it is more about who you are as a person and how you feel about that person.

Sometimes those experiences can cause us to feel insecure, lacking in confidence, or even make us feel like we are not good enough. It can be hard to move through things that trigger us, or make us feel like this, but there are definitely steps we can take to help soften us and allow us to feel more worthy, more comfortable in our own skin and ultimately more confident.
