When you are there, you are amazing. You give me strength, allow me to have friendly chats with strangers and enable me to dazzle my friends with witty banter (!?) You make me happy because I believe in myself and when I believe in myself I dream big, and get enthused by the possibilities of what is yet to come.
Why then, do you disappear half of the time? You leave me high and dry when I bump into people I kind of know in the street. Your absence makes me sweat profusely, say nonsense things and then I walk away thinking ‘jeesh, I’m a twat!’
Don’t think I haven’t noticed the other times you disappear. When a situation arises that I need to believe in myself, you seem to doddle off somewhere and leave me fending for myself. You think its ok to let Self Doubt take your role for a while? Honestly, it’s not. It’s not ok. It is NOT COOL.
If you have been trying to teach me a lesson; I will learn. I don’t want to become one of those people who freak me out – you know, the type of person who is so full of self-confidence who ends up coming across as arrogant and who seems unaware of others around them. I won’t be that person. All I want is for a bit of you to be my side through it all. If you feed me strength I will feed you humbleness. That is a promise.
Thank you for listening Confidence, I hope we can become best friends as time goes by.
With gratitude (cause even though you disappear sometimes I do enjoy the times that you are here),
