Even Rihanna Has Had Confidence Issues

November 10th, 2017

Low self-esteem is common for so many women out there. We’ve all had moments where we don’t exactly feel at our most. I know I don’t! I try to focus on the positive to stay confident and strong about myself. Yet, I waiver. I’m not alone, and neither are you. Even the picture of confidence, Rihanna, has self-doubt from time to time. Trust me; I wouldn’t joke about this. She opened up about her confidence issues when she sat down with Instyle to discuss her new makeup line, Fenty Beauty.

When asked what pressures she’s had to overcome, Rihanna responded, “I don’t know if it was a confidence thing, but I was very shy at one point. I knew what I was about and what I stood for, but I was not very vocal. In the Barbadian culture, there’s this thing we say: “Speak when you’re spoken to.” It’s polite not to blabber. It took me a couple of years to come out of my shell.” It’s hard to imagine Rihanna keeping her mouth shut. Now, she’s so open-minded. She’s confident and isn’t afraid to be herself. She shows off her own uniqueness and even reminds women how important it is to be themselves.

“I only know how to be me, and people thrive when they’re who they’re meant to be. I can only try my best to encourage girls and women to respect their uniqueness and be 100 percent true to themselves.”

We’re all human! Even Rihanna has moments of self-doubt. Confidence issues are common. It’s okay to feel like you aren’t adequate all the time. YOU are enough, and the best part is, you aren’t alone. We need to stay focused on our goals and on ourselves to overcome these feelings of inadequacy. Women like myself and Rihanna are living our dreams. When you live like this, there’s almost no time for self-doubt. So work hard, be yourself, and maybe you can be as confident as Rihanna.
