Thoughts and doodles...
October 29, 2014
A while ago, I bumped into a quote that has stuck in my head since: Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud. Today it found its way into my doodles. I don't know why this specific quote stuck so much with me. To be honest, it has come to serve a bit as a guide for me in my everyday life. I think for a lot of people, the general reaction to insecurities is to speak up and maybe even go into defensive mode. I know I tend to do that. But since reading this quote, I am trying to think twice before I speak. If I am confident in myself and my abilities, then why do I need to defend myself? Trusting that I am good enough allows me to sometimes hold my tongue which, at least for me, saves me a lot of energy. And it reminds me that when people are sometimes aggressive or pushy, it is actually their insecurities making noise. Quiet confidence. I like it! Quality quote!
