Confidence was never something that came naturally to me, and I could never understand why.
I remember trying to reason it out in high school: “How is that kid on the football team so cocky and certain? He’s not even that good on the team and I’m captain of the varsity soccer team. He’s not that smart academically and I’ve got straight A’s in my AP classes (note to self, do not use that as a pick up line). He hardly says anything that funny and I’d like to think I’m a witty guy. Even on the scale of attractiveness (although this is a hard one to be objective about) I’d say we’re about even.
