Never apology for being yourself! Always be yourself no matter how much society try to change you. When I started NaviNav, "The Me Brand" that was my main objective to break barriers that subject me as a product of society instead of person of myself.
Learn to love yourself before you can love anyone else. The understanding of being comfortable with yourself, and doing you at all times no matter the cause. When you love yourself, it'll make you feel good about yourself which will boost your confidantes.
