Not that this is bad - I think a lot of it stems from an eager to please, ambitious nature that we share. My mom and sister could really run the world... as the laid-back one, I'm less inclined to be able to handle the details of such a venture.
I have to say, I wish I could be more like Joan Holloway from Mad Men. You never see that lady sweat. She has a voice as smooth as silk, and is always the best dressed girl in the room. She's the go-to-girl who can handle anything - she's my inspiration.
I think we all have a desire to be confident, or at least seem confident. For me, I have to wonder - will that ever happen? I must say - I believe it to be way worse when someone has unsubstantiated arrogance. I've come across that a lot up here. So how can you be one while avoiding the other?
On the up side, I recently found my glasses that I only pseudo-need, and I've been wearing them - lets see if that helps.
