It's okay not to always feel confident. Right, Kelsea?

As part of iHeartRadio Presents SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women in Music in honor of International Women's Day, Kelsea Ballerini is opening up about confidence and why she remains authentic.

"I'm not always confident. And I think that no one is," the 27-year-old says in the PEOPLE exclusive clip. "And if you are, congratulations, I would love to take classes from you. I don't think we live in a world where you can feel amazing in your skin all the time, because it's really hard."

"And people are tough right now, especially online. I really try to be authentic. And I'm glad that comes across as confidence to people but it's really just kind of being vulnerable and not feeling confident all the time," she adds. "I also think when you feel your feelings and when you own how you're feeling, whether that be celebratory or in a valley, that's how you move forward and move on and become better and stronger and bolder and all those things."
