In our previous post, we discussed how self-confidence is often strongly influenced by our perceptions about what others might think about us. This is an endlessly fascinating topic for me and Rachel because we often swing between feeling totally ourselves, ready to the face the world, through to crippling anxiety about what others will think, and back again.
In doing so, we are gradually learning strategies for staying more in the former space, and reducing time in the latter. But it is by no means a perfect science. We find ourselves testing the waters, dipping our toes into different ways of being to see what happens.

Thank you, and until the next time…! 🙂
