    I Am Always Surprised By How Confident I Appear To Be!

    People always says things to me like "your so confident you could do anything" or "your the most confident I know".  I'm always surprised by such remarks, i just don't realise just how confident I appear to be.  I always come across as being really enthusiastic and...

    A Front!

    I act more confident than I am a lot! I guess I do it to protect myself. I feel that if people knew how I really felt and let then see my vunerability they would take advantage. Most people who know me think I'm so confident, in fact they would probably say I'm the most confident...

    Acting

    i act overly confident with everything i do. but in my head im thinking im going to fail i just know i will. i think i do this more to make myself believe i can do it more than i am for other people. i have low self confidence in myself. but i try to just brush it off.

    A teacher of mine once said a rather insightful thing during a lecture. He said that confidence and self-esteem are two very different things. To be confident is to project a certain self-assurance to those around you. To have self-esteem is to actually believe in yourself and...
