Relying on others to boost your confidence isn’t a good way to build self esteem. Social media has become a big culprit of this problem.
Not everyone is going to always be encouraging even when you’re doing fantastic things. That’s their problem they are projecting onto you.
Being your own cheerleader is a way to build your self confidence and self worth. If you’re doing great things and others can’t see that or push their opinions on you, you can recognize that and walk away without your shine being darkened by their negativity.
Use your passions, talents and skills to uplift your self and others. Yes, there will be struggles, but you can get through them when you know you can achieve anything. Don’t wait for someone else to tell you, you’re worthy to know your worth.
