What is the line between arrogant and humble? Or rather, arrogant, confident, and humble? Can you be confident and humble? Or is confidence arrogance?
To know something.
To have no proof but to be firm in your stance.
That is what I'm asked to do at all phases of my life.
At dance auditions, I'm told to evoke confidence
As if I've already have my years of professional experience
In order to get the professional experience I deserve
At work, I teach kids dance styles like I did not
Learn about them two years ago
Let alone have any qualifications to teach them how they are embodied
When I meet a nice guy or girl,
I'm supposed to be confident
As if I've already done this before and not afraid
To talk about myself
But probably should not tell them all the truth.
Or avoid the honesty that this is all new to me and has never worked
Out. It is all new to me.
And yet I am expected to evoke this confidence.
To know that it is going to
Work out. When the
Truth is, it just might not.
