Unknowingly Confident

A few weeks ago, I went rafting with my neighbors, and was able to talk to them quite a bit about college and their own experiences. It was really beneficial to me, because I learned the benefits of going in and seeking help from your Professor, going to school events, and joining study groups.

One of the ladies with me on the rafting trip asked about my own school, and the things that I'm worried about. I told her briefly about my confidence level, and how one of my goals in to be more confident so I'll be able to make friends easier and ask for help when I need it instead of being my typical quite and avoiding self. (I haven't been one to start conversations, or to go in after class when I needed help). After I finished, she kind of smiled and said "Well, you must already be really confident! You're going to a school that's in another state, where you don't know anyone at all, and no one can come and visit you very regularly. That shows confidence, doesn't it?"

*Exploding Noises* She blew my mind! I had no idea that I was already being confident in myself just by going to school! I thought that I would have to develop my confidence after I got there! Now, I know that I'll have to do that too, but this feels like a head start! I'm already confident enough to live fairly far away, so why not keep it going??
