People normally think that celebrities are such big inspirations in a lot of different ways, especially if these celebrities are fighting for something they believe in. What most people seem to forget is that celebrities are just like the rest of us. They have their own ups and downs, happy moments that they will cherish and of course, struggles and hardships that the must face. One of the most shocking struggles they faced or still facing is confidence. People would often think that every celebrity is just full of confidence since, well, they’re used to the crowd, cameras, and the press.
That’s exactly what they do for a living, then again, anyone can be confident, then again the only thing that keeps people from being confident is other people. We simply cannot please everyone, and that’s exactly what makes us vulnerable and would sometimes sell ourselves short, which is why a couple of celebrities shared some tips and tricks when it comes to boosting confidence in a lot of different ways, here are some of them.
PHYSICAL CONFIDENCE POINTERS
Julia Robert’s famous niece, Emma Roberts, shares her secrets to becoming more confident when it comes to her body. In an interview with Shape magazine, the 26-year-old actress says, “I started working out regularly when I was living in New Orleans shooting American Horror Story: Coven several years ago. I really fell in love with the food there. To counter all I was eating, I worked out more. It was a great balance: I’d have fried chicken sliders at night and then go to my yoga class the next morning.”
She almost mentioned that being fit helps her be more confident and that everyone must do whatever it is that would help them.
Roberts also mentioned how important it is to have some time away from all the negativity caused by social media and of course technology. “I’ve learned to step away from electronics and be fully present. If I’m going out to eat with friends or my boyfriend, I leave my phone at home is that I’m not reaching for it. It gives my brain room to breathe, and it feels really good. On Sundays, I have breakfast with girlfriends and then we go to the flea market and walk around and talk and really spend time together. We’re not there to Instagram or Snapchat it,” the Scream Queen lead actress explained.
This is what the most famous Kardashian sister, Kim Kardashian West believes in. For more than 10 years now, their family reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on the air and they basically grew up and was molded into what they are now because of being on the limelight almost 24/7. Which is why the pressure is severe on them. The mom of two recently revealed that she is suffering from dysmorphia, which is a mental illness where the person overly criticizes his or herself’s physical appearance. In an interview, she managed to share that “You have to be positive and truly ignore it. Never change who you are. Be happy for others, and be happy for yourself if you accomplished something you are proud of.”
This is also something that Angelina Jolie believes in. The Maleficent actress managed to compare childhood into life lessons when it comes to oneself. “We have a choice about how we can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we’re able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves,” Jolie said.
Finally, Award-winning recording artist Taylor Swift also believes that there will always be people who wouldn’t like anything about you and would spread a nasty rumor just because they feel like it and it is definitely too far from being nice especially to celebrities like her. “People will find anything about you and twist it to where it’s weird or annoying or strange, you have to not only live your life in spite of people who don’t understand you, you have to have more fun than they do,” she said in an interview with ABC News.
Academy-award winning actress, Anne Hathaway shares the same thoughts when she openly discussed how she managed to let loose and simply accepted herself. “If you don’t love yourself when someone else says horrible things to you, part of you is always going to believe them. I feel like I’ve arrived in a place where maybe not every minute of every day, but way more than I used to, I have a tremendous amount of love and compassion for everyone else and best of all, I have it for myself,” she stated in an interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
