I wouldn't worry about it. People are insecure about many things, but they tend to hide it. I don't trust anyone who can't be serious for a minute or those who insist that everything is fine. For instance, I don't mind being in a party with strangers. I find it easy to approach people and strike up a conversation. I don't want to miss a thing. But that's me. I have been accused of being "over-confident," but I believe that's the other person's problem for stating this. Other people at a party will disappear into a wall and will spend the evening nursing their drink and observing others. Don't ever compare yourself to others. Do what you feel comfortable doing. You will find that it takes different personalities to make the world move. Try starting by accepting yourself and knowing yourself well.
But where is the problem? There will be situations where we won't be confident. If you think you should be confident in that situation, then you need to figure out why you are not - what could change your feeling?
sounds like the situations you are in you do not know it 100% enough to be vocal or give an accepted opinion. I was like that until there are situations I knew so much about I had to voice an opinion or take the lead.
A constant blink is a clue, as is slurred speech, loss of balance, a subconscious need to crawl on your hands and knees, tiredness and of course the trail of empty bottles hidden under a cloud of boozy fumes!
Oh don't worry about PD... He is just being himself. Emily, if you think you lack confidence, work on it, you would definitively know where you lack confidence. Equip yourself with knowledge, positively affirm yourself you are surely good in certain areas, don't let others tell you who you are or what you lack, listen to yourself. Building yourself confidence isn't very hard, I have been there done that... so you go girl.. You are special in your own way!
I think lack of self confidence is the first path when you interact with others. It is part of the "algorhythm", if you can't answer something, lack of confidence will show up as a sign of resignment that is absolutely normal and periodic, basically it gives you a hint on what you still need to work on. Its signs are just the best way to show others that you are not finished yet. Anyway, not every person is aware of this, and they often build lies on their personality and hypocrisy that is against our nature I suppose.
I do not worry that he will "jump ship" and I am not scared to "show backbone" if thats what you want to call it. I love him, and he loves me-of this I am sure. I do not need help and advice in making him happy. I simply wanted to show him how much I care MORE then I already do.
when one has little experience in a given situation, and is concerned this lack of experience could impact her behavior or the outcome, then one might say he/she does not have self-confidence in so far as that situation is concerned
I have always been the type of guy that just goes with the flow of things and believes that things in life should just evolve naturally. For example, I struggle with formal aspects of relationships and just prefer...
As someone who values honesty, integrity, selflessness and compassion, I am astonished by the amount of self serving people that cross my path, who go out of their way to be mean and cash in on the misfortune of...
