    Most people don't ask for help because they'll look dumb, but life is too short to care about what other people think of you, i ask all the stupid questions because i know others have the same question but are afraid to ask for themselves, i don't mind looking dumb as long as i get results.

    It is interesting to see the perspective of humor as it cleanses the mind of insecurities. Deep in the realms of our minds lies the characteristics of a foolish being. Thus, coming to grips with this realization allows for me to finally understand the blunders that we all make and the hurtful admonitions we impose on ourselves.

    Consequently, this notion leaves me smiling at the fact that we are all creative beings full of wonder in the sense that we are inevitably going to face failure but in a dignified manner that encapsulates our inner child.

    I've had plenty of practice telling myself I am a useless piece of garbage. I think the key for me is that in the past I've been thoroughly convinced that I desperately needed to fix that. So in some cases it's just as much about accepting yourself as a nitwit as it is recognizing that you are one.

    While eliminating the fear of failure is great for confidence, the caveat is that one might become an unbridled jackass. One must be careful to ensure fear is a counselor and not a jailer.

    The sad thing about confidence is that i was never encouraged to have it. People didnt like those who tought well of themselfs or found themselfs okay. Everything in our society wanted us to feel less so we would buy more and just idk. When i was little and i liked the way my hair was braided for example, i was told by my peers never to let it show because it sounded selfish. I dont really know if it makes sense, but everytime i have to meet new people there is always that voice telling me that they dont like me and i dont deserve to be their friend because im just... me. Ordinary, stupid, awkward me. And that's what i became because i didnt have the confidence to show how interesting i really was. I am still having trouble being me and talking and making new friends, but as i feel more confident, i feel like i can talk more. It effects every part of your life so just know that confidence is more that just likeing yourself

    It seems we learn to accept ALL of ourselves -- not just the seemingly perfect side. I have done many foolish things in my life and I eventually succeed in the endeavors that are most important to me through perseverance. I try not to let anything get in the way of accomplishing my goals and dreams despite my many setbacks and disappointments.

    OK. I tried this. I went about my day willingly accepting the possibility that everyone could think of me as an utter douchebag. Suddenly my inhibitions flew out the window, I started speeding and going full hype in my car. Chatting up strangers and I managed to bed a 10. I love being a stupid cocksucker no good dumb dumb. Now I'm free to do what I want, when I want. I mean, who gives a shit? This is what it must feel like to be a psychopath! Fucking awesome mate!

    But if you call yourself an "imbecile" every morning, won't that make you less confident and make you less likely to take risks? Yes, you have nothing to lose but you might not even bother taking risks because you view yourself as a failure.

    I can agree on a lot of this. BUT! I dont think we should call ourselves idiots or imbeciles or whatever. More like: not perfect. Yes, we are not perfect. But I dont think we are all incompetent idiots. We try, we fail, we learn. That does not make us complete idiots. We must accept that we cant do everything right, and that we have to learn. I dont think we should see ourselves as idots just because we cant do everything perfect.

    Interesting take on confidence. Still does not change the fact that you WILL be judged by others regardless of what you do (ergo might as well do what you want). People delight in mocking others of their imperfections, it makes them feel superior, the only way to "philosophize" out of this conundrum is that if/when the others make a mistake, you can have your turn to mock them.

    This is what is so refreshing about most Seniors. They have given up being so one dimensional and egotistical. No wonder ageism exists as those elders might teach us to relax and realize life is very short. What a dangerous concept. Wisdom might just mean having a good time and not caring too much about what others think or waste their time focusing one.

    sometimes, when I'm trying something new, and I'm not sure about it, I stand in front of the mirror and insult myself with all the words and aspects I can think of. I do this, and when someone does insult me, it doesn't hurt, or surprise me, because I've heard it before, and I can joke about it.

    It's nice to know that I can stop looking for the point in my life where I'll stop messing up, doing embarrassing things and, generally being awkward. I used to frequently joke with my sister, asking if The Queen has actually farted in front of people, or ever peed herself as a three year old. I always look back at my younger self with disdain, grateful that I'm nowhere near THAT anymore- but I'll never be smarter, or kinder, I'll just have gone through more I guess. Just because I'm an eternal meathead doesn't mean I will never accomplish anything
