Were you as confident as you are now in high school? If not, when/how did you become this confident? I could really use your advice as I am a high schooler trying to work on my self confidence and really admire yours.

Lol I think I was MORE confident in high school! It was to the point of cockiness tho... I like how I am now much better. Humility is something I learned more about in college. The truth is, confidence is a game of fake it till you make it. I'll have to noodle on this topic more before I write a post about it, but I definitely think that confidence is something that begins as a conscious habit. If you tell yourself you're cool, and start pretending you are, other people will see that and start treating you accordingly. And when other people are treating you like you're cool, then you'll be confident for real :)
