    Call it pride nor predjudice I maintain the facade.  So weak, so flawed. Broken and bent, not quite spent. This whirlwind that changes the songs.   Not the snobbery of pretense, no that would be shallow To worship  the tangible things. Having...

    Sometimes I can pull it off sometimes I can't.

    I'm actually a decent actor in many situations though. i'll admit there were times in my past where my mentality was "act the role until you can own it or grow into it."

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Talking is easy. It is the actions which are difficult. I would rather have one strong, beautiful gesture, than a thousand spoken words.
