As a raging neurotic, I consider myself the least confident person here, or anywhere else for that matter. Unfortunately one of the results of that is that I tend to over do things. Attempting to look confident, I often times come off a little too..........something.
Looking back over the time I have been this way, I realize how much I could have done but haven't. All because I feel nuts. It's a shame really, because before his started there were folks who thought I was going to be somebody people would remember. I could have been somebody.....
At the same time, I am both amazed - and proud of myself, that I'm even still here.

You may be talking about lack of fear Bro. Since being this way, there are things that used to scare me that don't anymore. I'm so wrapped up in the terror of DP, that little things like walking through a rough part of town don't bother me anymore. My wife claims I do that sort of thing just so I can get into a fight. Another distraction............ Not sure that would be considered confidence though.

I think I am confident and hesitant at the same time, for example toward school. But it seems I grow more confident toward scary things year by year - I agree with sc, being confident is having the lack of fear. I am confident considering e.g. passing easy courses at school, which I was afraid of passing during my first years at university. Now I lack confidence toward the most difficult courses that I haven't been able to pass yet, and I'm extremely afraid of my final thesis. Let alone the hypothetical future occupation - I am afraid of not getting one after I have accomplished my studies. But it seems every year I grow a bit more confident than the year before, so I may guess that all of those things I fear now will be nothing in the end, but just a piece of cake. At least I hope so. :wink:

Yeah, I'm with amlangela in anything regarding confidence/self-esteem toward other people. Before I used to be shocked, if there were people who didn't like me somehow, but nowadays I couldn't care less. This is my life to live, not anybody else's - other people have their own lives to live. If somebody doesn't like me, I likely won't like hir either. Simple :wink:

Oh, dance parties...! I love them! Nice to meet other people too who like dancing at rave parties, or tanssibileet in Finnish. Or especially mets?bileet, those dance parties that are arranged in forests :D

I am pretty confident in most situations (well, i went on that bloody gameshow last week, didn't I!), but there are occasions where for some reason I feel a bit diffident. I think it depends on the company I'm in...if I'm with friends I feel totally outgoing, but if I'm with people I don't like or don't trust (like the people I used to work with) then I tend to draw within myself and stay a bit guarded, which can lead to me appearing shy if they start to try and break that surface. But now for the most part I tend to be more confident than ever.
