Because a poor self image can sap the confidence out of a human being. Literally sap the strength out of him/her.
Ambushed? You are the one that is doing the ambushing.
I am concerned about this statement.
And hope that I do not get ambushed.
Yep, like a shark you just need to get close.
I hope so. Seems I keep making error after error in this game.
Do not worry, soon you will fall into one of the classes we discussed and the problem will all be solved on its own.
I'm starting to understand that a bit more, but I still find the execution difficult. When presented with the situation I find myself trying to be dominant but ending up reverting to my natural instincts -- to not be dominant.
Why do you have to fake it? You are not competing against The Incredible Hulk here. We are talking about a human being. Someone physically smaller and weaker and certainly from the group you have outlined intellectually weaker too. Someone who is asking for you to take charge.
I can fake something like confidence quite easily, but it is impossible to fake strength.
You do of course. It depends on you. It will be like acquiring more physical strength. Whether you are picking up a tea cup or the front end of a VW it is always there. You learn how much you need and when. Same thing with self confidence. There will always be more than enough and you turn it on and off as you need it.
Who knows how long that would take...
It is just a question of attitude. It is no more difficult than wearing a different shirt. Soon you will get tired of those type comments and do what is required.
It doesn't sound difficult, yet I am struggling...
Pappym would say you are your own worst enemy. To have strength is relative. You do not have to be able to whup Godzilla or be smarter than Lex Luthor. Those would be hard tasks to accomplish. You only have to beat out other humans that are insecure, frightened, unsure and fallible. This is not such a hard task.
