Normani has admitted that being a member of girl group, Fifth Harmony, "took a toll" on her confidence.
The Motivation hitmaker shares in an article about being overlooked in the group alongside Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui affected her negatively.
Normani explains that it alters the perception you have of yourself, "Having certain things happen so blatantly while also feeling like the 'other' and being so young and hearing the public compare [us] took a toll on my confidence."
She confesses that for a long time she didn’t believe in herself and also didn’t feel like she was given the opportunity to.
Following the disbanding of the five-piece girl group, Normani does daily positive affirmations to boost her self esteem. She says the practice enables her to manifest and speak things that she wants to happen as if they already did and as if she's already that version of herself.
