…find some confidence
Looking at the headlines today it’s hard to be positive about the state of the world.
With all of the blind hatred, doomed peace talks, and political games going on out there it’s easy to assume the worst.
But don’t worry I found something that is improving: our vanity.
Yes, we are growing (literally and emotionally). More of us have realized that we will never be models or movie stars and comparing ourselves to that unattainable “ideal” only ends badly.
Sounds great right? Just wait. Since we’ve accepted our sentence as “average,” we’ve moved on from comparing ourselves to movie stars to judging ourselves against all of the other “average” people out there.
Good news,a lot of us think we’re pretty fabulous.
In the under 30 crowd about 30% of us think we’re at least an 8.
That’s of course on the very official 10 point attractive scale.
And everyone knows the highest you can rate yourself and still maintain some sense of modesty is a 7.
We’re becoming “those” people.
It’s not so bad…yet. There’s still time.
I don’t want to squelch self-confidence, but there’s a fine line between confidence and vanity…so watch it…and tread carefully!
