Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 467 People

    I believe... Confidence is not bravado,

    or swagger, or an overt pretense of bravery or strength. It isn't a bold or brash air of self-belief directed at others. Confidence is quiet: It’s a 'natural expression' of ability and self-regard. It doesn't have to announce or prove itself. Nor does it have to vy for...

    I wish everyone did. Confidence is a huge turn

    on. Someone that knows their capabilities and carries themselves in a positive, self assured manner is so much more attractive than the over-bearing, cavalier people who don't truly possess confidence, just the extreme behavior, attempting to pass their arrogance off as...

    Confidence is knowing

    that you can do something without trying to top everyone else whereas arrogance, you try to top everyone else and prove that you're better than them.

    I am always confident

    but I can be arrogant but not to other people. I don't want them to feel discouraged. Thor would remind himself of his extreme might as motivation and I follow the path of the Thunder God.

    A lot of people think I'm arrogant

    because I'm quiet, brutally honest, and a bit narcissistic, but truthfully I know my strengths and my weaknesses. Sometimes I verbalize incorrectly but I'm confident in myself, flaws and all.
