Welcome to Behind the Confidence, a video series about the real, unfiltered journey to self-belief. We talked to four health and wellness pros who prove true confidence doesn’t stem from a “like,” nor does it magically happen overnight. It’s about finding what makes you feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Many of us dream about doing what we love for a living, but it’s hard to know where to begin. Jamie Tworkowski started with a story. He published that story—about a friend struggling with addiction, depression, and suicidal thoughts—on Myspace, and it went viral. But it wasn’t until later that he realized it could be something bigger: a movement that helps break the silence surrounding depression and lets people know it’s OK to ask for help.

In this video, Tworkowski talks about how his nonprofit, To Write Love on Her Arms, was born, and how he found confidence in finding not just his passion but also his purpose.
