With low levels of confidence you assume that people will not like if you showed them your true self. It makes you pretend in front of the people to be happy and excited when you are actually not. You need to accept that you are a human and have full range of emotions. When you will show your character traits to the world, express yourself, and be yourself then you will start building inner confidence.

As humans, you must love and cherish the emotions that you feel. Not accepting your true emotions make you a real coward. So there is no harm in shedding tears and running away from emotions. Accept that moments in life are sometimes pleasant and sometimes not but running away from them does not help. You need to acknowledge how you feel and then make effort to fixing the problems.
