“If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good." Dr. Seuss
This quote speaks to me about being self-confident. You need to be confident to do and enjoy fun things.
According to the dictionary “Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in one’s self.”
