Here’s a thought: Confident people are those who confide.
Think about that for a moment. Doesn’t that seem counter-intuitive?
When we think of confident people, we imagine they have it all figured out…that they can handle things on their own..that the mere act of reaching out is a sign of weakness. But it’s actually the opposite.
People who have confidence, are the first to confide in others. They recognize their frailties, not as a victim, but as part of their basic humanness.
So if you’re sitting in a place of fear or judgement because you’re “strong” and you “should have it all figured out”, think again. The most valiant thing you can do right now is reach out, call a friend, send an email, pose a question. Ask for a prayer. You may just be met with a life-giving outcome…confident people asking for help in return.
