Tell us all I about your best confidence outfit. Don’t leave out the shoes or the perfect accessories.
I don’t have one of these. I think when I was younger and more ripped, and dancing full time, a lot of my confidence outfits were stuff that I wore whenever I went out dancing with my friends. We would work out an outfit that looked very cool, and then go find a club, hit a podium, or clear a space on a dance floor, and then just dance the night away – dancing with anybody and everybody who came near us.
Nowadays, I don’t get the opportunity to get dressed up very often.
I will, however, admit that I look rather fetching in a suit and tie, with my hair slicked down… but I actually cannot stand wearing a suit and tie because it’s just not me. It’s not who I am. I think that you’re either a suit guy or your not. If I ever changed jobs, there is no way I could handle having to wear a shirt and tie everyday, let alone a full suit. It would drive me nuts. I admit that there are some guys out there who are just born to wear suits, and look incredible wearing them… but I’m not one of them.
Well, after consulting the Wiki link and reading about Impostor Syndrome which I’d never even heard of, I can identify with a number of the traits that are explained in the article… But I would have never entertained the idea of labelling myself as having that ‘condition’.
I wouldn’t say that I’m the sort of person who exudes confidence all the time, in everything I do – but there are certain facets of my life that I know that I’m good at, and excel at, but even in saying that, it’s a quiet confidence. I’m far too humble to walk around thinking that I’m the best at everything. That’s the type of quality that I absolutely cannot stand in other people. I cannot stand arrogance, and I certainly cannot be around that sort of person… Or their ego.
How would you rate your self-confidence? When is it at its lowest? When is it at its highest?
Self-confidence?? What’s that?
I’m not sure I’ve got that… perhaps I need to get some. Can you buy it online? Do they accept PayPal?
All jokes aside, let’s be honest here, I’m not exactly overflowing with self-confidence. I have my moments of when I feel pretty damn good at doing something, or if something requires my expertise or assistance, but other than that, I kind of just rate myself as being beige.
I honestly feel as though my self confidence has all but completely dissipated into the ether… I don’t know why or how, or even why I see myself like that, but I just do. Maybe I’m depressed? Maybe I need a bit of a reality check and a re-focus. Maybe I’m just stuck in some kind of emotional rut that I can’t seem to pull myself out of…?
