    just look good. when people tell you how hot you are it feels great at least in the beginning.

    networth and education is pretty intangible with no end and also something you have less immediate control over.

      Wtf. Even if intangible it will boost your self-confidence when you see stupid posts like these.

      you say you’re not good looking like it’s not changeable but when’s the last time you actually tried at the gym? exercise not only makes you look better but it is immensely good for your self confidence.

      It has been awhile since I hit the gym. Feel like a potato after work and pretty unmotivated. Good advice though

    There are no shortcuts. If you want confidence, you have to have things to be confident about. Live the life you really want to live. Challenge yourself, aim higher than where you are now. Face your fears.

    Run a lot of miles, lift heavy weights, eat nutritious food, sleep like a baby. You’ll feel fucking fantastic in no time.

      Good advice so far. Working as SWE made me feel unmotivated to move around a lot.

    I worry (not really, definitely a figure of speech) about the many who use this app and seem anchored in life based purely on where they work and how much they make. They seem like empty shells beyond those two things.

    Self-confidence is what you have left when all of the material world is stripped away: character, knowledge, wisdom, capability, belief in and love of self, independence, relationships, spirituality, health. These all play a vital part in your level of self confidence. Cultivate that, the rest tends to take care of itself.

    Fking Blind app man. Makes me feel safe, and therefore confident the other losers got my back.

    I don't know any of you but I feel a natural connection to the community here. People have helped me a lot too. DMs to help deal with a personal thing. Two people gave me their phone numbers and helped me prep for F/G interviews. Insane.

      I wont lie its awful. adderall highs are p good too, the drips are way better at least. Ritalin rails give you a much more intense high though although you’ll pay for it shortly after 😂
