i feel like i’m learning something about confidence. i think it’s such an attractive quality. not arrogance or anything false but just being comfortable with who you are and not making consessions for it.
specifically i’m thinking of an old pattern about obsessing about how other people must see me. it’s been nice to, in the moment when i head in that direction, to stop myself and just focus on what i want, how i want this moment to be, and forget about my assumptions about the assumptions of others. it’s nice. it’s new. i love this stage of learning where you’re just becoming aware and you can appreciate it.
