I am sharing this poem because the words are so true and the writer so very young. Be encouraged!

Confidence is facing the challenges of your life with courage. Confidence is never backing out, even when things are not going your way yet. Confidence is saying, “YES,” and meaning it. Confidence is saying, “NO,” and meaning it. Confidence is not compromising.
Confidence is standing and holding on to that which you know is true, no matter what.
Confidence is what you need to overcome your fears. So, to be somebody, have Confidence in yourself.
Only Confidence keeps you going.
