Confidence…sometimes you gotta fake it to make it!
One thing I am going to suggest, when taking action to stop your bullies, is to start with them before going over their heads. Have you ever been told by someone else that they don’t like your behaviour or something you’ve said? It is exactly like that.
None of us are perfect and it isn’t a given quality to be able to see something from someone else’s point of view, particularly when people operate on such a varying spectrum of self-expression from those that drop heavy hints in non-verbal communication while being perfectly polite and saying the complete opposite to what their bodies are saying. It can be very confusing when you pick up conflicting signals from people, so we all have to allow others and ourselves to speak up.
Just two days ago I thought about what confidence meant in terms of behaviour. Ideally, this book can give you confidence if you want it to. I can write what I like but the genius of any book is the reader, not the writer.
To me, a confident person would say and do what they want. Don’t worry for now about how good a person might be. For a skeletal guide: a “confidence trickster” has probably got an agenda that will not work in your favour.

We are all responsible for our feelings and thoughts. We can conduct these so that whatever other people are doing or saying, we are not affected by it.
The following blog looks back over the two decades leading up to 2020 to see what was said about SARS, vaccines and coronaviruses. In 2016, numerous celebrities died starting in December 2015 with Lemmy from Motorhead. Many were in their later years such as Terry Wogan. Some met tragic ends, such as Prince. Others were […]
I have found it increasingly difficult to have in depth conversations with people as it seems as if their mind is made up on many topics, which brings to mind the Arctic Monkey’s song A Certain Romance: “They’ll never listenBecause their minds are made up” (Artic Monkeys – A Certain Romance) What is the difference […]
This is conjecture and an exploration, not even opinion yet. Like many of us, I have so many questions but there do not seem to be many people able or available to answer. How can such a massive campaign be launched to vaccinate people against COVID-19 without information, which allows each person to do what […]
This is just a view, drawn from my angle on life. I doubt and question every opinion and conclusion I draw, to find out if there is something I haven’t seen. It is always inspiring to hear a different angle on something, which widens my perspective. A few months ago, I was chatting to the […]
Sally can barely see over the top of a hefty paper bag full of shopping because she is carrying it from the base. It is rush hour and people walk swiftly in the opposite direction, which turns taking groceries home into a high-stakes survival game. It starts to rain. While concentrating on navigating the tide […]
