I Refuse To Let Myself Down

Trying to build the confidence i was born to have,
I look in the mirror every day,
When I was younger I refused to look at myself,
Now I refuse to look the other way.

I refuse to let myself down.

You see there wasn't much to do to build my self esteem,
I just stopped letting people discourage me,
There's always going to be those people,
I just have to let it be.

I refuse to let myself down.

In the past I would try too hard,
I just made myself look like a moron,
I recently realized to just be myself,
And all the dumb stuff I did are now gone.

I refuse to let myself down.

I have recently closed a chapter in my life,
And there is so much in life I have to endure,
Self confidence is a big part of moving forward,
And an absolutely amazing cure.

I refuse to ever let myself down!
