I am not sure whether this quote is true of me because I am a female, or because of who I am. I do shut down for a moment when I am extremely hurt because I internally start to wonder if the person harmed me in that way because I am a woman, or because I am not good enough, or both. Mostly, this reaction is pretty constant with my identity.
You are good enough! You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be known and accepted completely. You deserve the same love that you show to them little children. You are good enough for the love displayed to you, just reach out and receive it, it is yours.
Self-confidence is that little voice inside your head that tells you I am good enough and speaks to the value we place on who we are. You can cultivate and nurture self-confidence. With practice you can change your perspective of how you see and feel about yourself which, in turn, changes your outlook on life and how you present yourself to others.
