“My name is Desiree and I struggle from self-image issues as well as lack of self-confidence, I am in need of support.”  

I say this to you the reader, and to the world, because I don’t think it is something said often enough.  I don’t hear people admit they too, have self-doubts or could use more self-confidence.  I start my blog in such a way so that you recognize you’re not alone.  The world is filled with many of us young, middle-aged, short, tall, etc.  There is not a single person I know that does not have flaws that they might dislike or down right hate.  It’s not verbalized though, I want to verbalize them! I want our flaws to be acknowledged, I want our dislikes to be recognized.  I want us to know that having self-image issues or lacking self-confidence is OK, it is normal, and that a normal human being has them. You do not need to be afraid of them, or let them make you be afraid of life

I originally chose a book as my way to share my story.  I then decided that a blog might be a more universal way to speak to those who normally would have no interest in “self help.” I hope to create a community for girls, boys, men and women to be themselves.  To be able to talk with others about their concerns about self-confidence and self-doubt. I hope to create conversation starters and encourage strength, unity and positivity around self-confidence and self-esteem. I hope you read these posts and realize I’m very similar to you, I’m a “normal” human.  I do not have a doctorate in psychology, I’m not a public speaker. I am a twenty-five year old woman who works every day just like you do, to get up and face herself in the mirror.

So I am going to post a topic a month, I encourage all the readers to have conversations with myself and each other.

I want to hear your stories! Share them with me by Email me or tag me on Instagram.
