In My Genes
A quick self-confidence story:
A few weeks back, my husband and I were having a philosophical discussion in the car. Conversations in the car are difficult – my husband is slightly deaf, and if you don’t talk right into his face, the hearing aids don’t necessarily pick it up. So car talk is loud. Which makes philosophy just plain weird. But I digress. (I really digress – this has nothing to do with my story.)
My husband was regretting the fact that sometimes he lacks self-confidence.
“I really worry that I am not good enough, or that I’ll fail when I try something new,” he said. (This is crazy to me. He BUILT our house, which is a palace.)
“Self-confidence is not a problem for me,” I said. “I think I can do ANYTHING!”
“Yeah,” he said grudgingly. “That’s the FRENCH side of you!”
