Self-confidence really is like a muscle you have to maintain. If you continue to work it out, it will grow. If you don’t, it tends to flop and sag. So here are six tips that are helping me build up and maintain self-confidence…I hope they help you too!

Y’all, I had an entire list of things I planned to do towards the beginning of the pandemic to keep a regular routine. It included attending all of the cool virtual events I could as well as getting dolled up and dressed every day. That was in April, when I naively thought this all was going to be wrapped up by summer.
We’re six months in now. I put on sweatpants and call it a day as I try to get work done. If my curls are popping in the morning, that’s a win. Virtual experiences (happy hours, virtual lunches, etc) have become annoying because, between work, side hustling, and watching Netflix, looking at screens all day can be draining. Minus some of the Verzuz battles on Instagram Live (I personally applaud Brandy and Monica for finally doing one!!!).
So this is my personal, new realistic list of things that I have found have kept me relatively sane in the midst of this pandemic. Hopefully, some of them help you!

I’ve opened up multiple times about the fact that I struggle with comparison. Many of us do, if we’re honest. It ultimately ends up hurting us because, based on other people’s highlight reels, we feel that nothing we achieved or are working towards is enough.
I know this but still I struggle. So much so, that I’ve had to delete and ignore social media at times, outside of scheduling posts for Imperfectly B (which, as a writer and rising microinfluencer, is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to do). I have obsessed over having the “right look” and content for my Instagram and website in my quest to snag sponsorship deals, as well as a good amount of engagement (likes, retweets, comments) across all platforms to be appealing. I wanted to be a big name in my field, thinking that it would mean I could reach more people, when really, it was about selfish ambition. I had to check myself.

A few years ago, a dear friend of mine recently came up to me, congratulating me on Imperfectly B, and stated, “I wish I knew what I was meant to do like you do.” Y’all. Our purpose is already within us, but we just have to do some self-reflection and consider what it may be.
I was blessed to know mine at an early age, and others do too. However, some, like my friend was, may be struggling to find what theirs is. There are a few simple questions you have to ask yourself. I break it down in an #ImperfectChat video with some guided bullet points to help you out!
