Okay. So, I have a some-what low self-esteem. I can’t build it up, though. I have this (probably irrational) fear that if I let myself go a little, I’ll get way out of hand. I’d end up being full of myself. Any advice? It would be welcome! Thank you in advance… 🙂

No no no you won’t become self-absorbed! You sound a little like freshman me. I always thought lowly of myself (and, admittedly, still do sometimes), I was shy, I never wanted to be in the spotlight. All of that has changed simply because I WANTED to change. I told myself before junior year started, “There is nothing stopping me from being who I want to me except myself.” It was a revelation moment. I prayed to God for confidence and slowly I just started speaking out more and just convincing myself that I was confident in everything I did. And slowly, I didn’t have to convince myself anymore. I just was. All you have to do to change yourself is change yourself. I used to think it was hard. It’s not really. At least it wasn’t for me. I’m to the point where I embarrass myself and I pretty much just laugh it off and make a joke out of it.
