How a Push of Confidence Made Me Fly.....

Hi everyone.......

Today I want to talk to you all about something quite personal...I want to share with you my journey from being a person with very low confidence & self esteem into a strong confident woman.

From the very start of my life I have been quite shy and had self esteem issues. I was someone who just couldn't do anything by myself. I always needed someone to be there, to guide me. My elder brother has always been my pillar of strength, the man who provided me with that support and guidance.

I liked acting very much. I would stand infront of the mirror and act out parts I had seen on TV for hours...But a person like me could never succeed in such a domain. I never took part in plays at school or was part of any cultural group as I had stage fright and was terrible at socializing with people.

My brother understood my problem and came to my help. He always encouraged me to take part in events and group activities. I was very hesitant at first and just could not speak my mind. People made fun of me and laughed at me making me even more sad and introvert. It was at this point my brother started coming with me at these events. With him around I felt relaxed and a bit confident. I wasn't someone to start up conversations but If someone started one I could carry it on for hours... :)

In a few months I had made some very nice friends and without me knowing it, I actually started enjoying group events and became quite vocal.

My brother suggested me to join the acting group of my collage....As he was someone whose advice I always relied on, so I joined the group.....My first stage performance was nothing short of a nightmare..Seeing so many people sitting in front of me waiting for me to say or do something....Then I saw my brother sitting in the very first row..... A sense of confidence just flooded me and I acted out the part given to me with ease....I got many compliments for my performance and from that day onwards there was no looking back...

With persuasion from my brother my dad allowed me to take a course in acting from a very reputed college.I now actively take part in theater and stage performances and am living my dream.... :)

Today I would like to take this chance to thank him for all that he has done for me...If not for him I would have never come out of my shell and would never have been able to realize my dreams....
