I can fake it, but the people who know me well know how I really feel. I also have a tendency to get too caught up in what other people think of me and care too much I am trying to get myself to a point where I don't let it affect me so much... Wishful thinking but it is worth a try

Oh and DC, just for the record I think it is amazing you started a course in the first place. My self esteem has stopped me from doing so many things like that, so you should be proud And I am sure you will settle in soon enough

i don't have it and I'm no good at faking it. I actually find it easier to talk to total strangers than anyone I am connected to. I'm good at retreating into a corner or avoiding situations. Its really held me back over the years, professionally and socially. i'm kind of at the point now where I'm sick of letting what *I* think other people think effect what i actually do. I'm realising that noone else has it all worked out anyway. And if they think they do, what they have worked out is prob not right for me, si i might as well do what i want anyway
Thats the theory anyway
ETA oh and DC I think you're so cool for doing this course, you've wanted to do it for so long and you'll be really good at it!!
And Chameleon you rock too

I have it, for the most part.
Has it changed over the years? Yes very much so, as my self esteem and body image grew so does my confidence. I also find that if I'm feeling particularly down on myself that my confidence will go down - generally once a month
What makes you so confident or not so confident? I've worked a lot on my self esteem. I've given birth to 6 children naturally and breastfed them all, this has made me feel at aw with my body and with my ability to perservere. Then it just snowballs from there. It also helps that I'm with a man who worships the ground I walk on and he makes me feel beautiful and amazing.
Do you ever fake confidence? On days where I don't feel confident, I have 'tried' to fake it.
Does it help? God no!
