Confidant: (n) a person with whom one shares a secret or private matter
Sometimes my own body scares me.
I believe it’s strong–but there is a fragility standing in the wings which often threatens to take the stage.
I fight feeling useless. I’m not. I just have this unquenchable desire to be more valuable. Or is it just ego?
I grew up in a household of violence. I don’t want to erupt with rage over something that is truly insignificant.
Although I’ve tried to put lying in my past, it hangs around like a lazy brother who might soon need a loan.
I am fat. I can’t escape that–at least, not so far. How much does this hurt me with my fellow humans?
I’m proud of what I do, but don’t want to be too proud. Otherwise, I might think I’ve done enough.
I work on being color-blind, but every once in a while some coloration clouds my reasoning.
I believe men and women are equal. I really do. Even when men make me question that and a certain woman I may encounter tempts me to be a misogynist.
I’m not strong all the time.
I am not smart.
I am not well-educated.
I do not have a diploma to cover every situation.
I enjoy creativity but honestly, despise obscurity.
I don’t want to be famous. Just helpful.
I’m not as good as I think I am, but not as bad as I fear might be the case.
I share this with you in confidence.
Are you a good confidant?
