This statement can’t be farther from the truth. It is one thing for people to believe in you and encourage you, but you will become dependant on those praises. When the praises stop, you are left wondering if you are good enough or did you do well enough. You must you begin to believe in yourself. You can walk tall and confident when the room is silent. You will begin to hear your own “way to go” or “you did good.” Confidence is a good thing, and you need it. Look in the mirror, smile, and encourage yourself. I believe in you, and you should too!
