Some the most secure people I know have bouts of depression and self doubt and the image that they project to others.
Luckily, my depression was just a hormonal thing becuz I really am not ready to wear sensible shoes.
Last year, the BossMan had all the staff together for a meetin'.....the first time some of my co-workers had ever actually saw me.....we talk on the phone all the time but I couldn't pick any of them out of a line-up! The offices are only 15 miles apart!!
And neither could they of me....we were all chatterin' away talkin' about nothin' when I left the room...one of them whispers to another "Who is that?"
When they all knew who I was, one of them said, "You wear Pink HiTops. I wish I had the nerve to wear Pink shoes."
Does it take nerve to wear Pink Converses?? That has hung in my brain since she said it.
So no....Granny...I'm not ready. Pink HiTops are about as sensible I as I get.
But Roy....light of my life....walked in one day and the first words outta his mouth was, "Do I talk tough?"
"Yes, Honey, you do."
I might as well have hit him in the balls!! He looked like I did....he feelin's were hurt. Men!!
I continued....I know all the right things to say....I've stroked his ego before....
"Honey, you carry yourself in a manner that exudes confidence. You strut. You walk with your shoulders back, chest all puffed out. The model of ToughNess! You are an icon. Other men tell YOUR WAR stories becuz they don't have their own!!! It is a documented fact, that you are arrogant."
For some reason those were not words he wanted to hear....he's no cream puff!
I'm not gonna lie about it...but he was hurt!
I have seen his SuperCape fly in the breeze!!
He not only talks the talk but He Walks the Walk....And he is having self esteem issues????
I had to know what prompted this...and he spilled the beans.
It would seem that a "friend" of his said "You talk tough! Let's just see how tough you are!" and they wrestled like boys in the schoolyard..... Roy came out on top....and all was giggles and shits with the "friend"....Men!!!
One would think if a 58 yr old man tussled with a 30 yr old and the 58 yr old was the winner he would strut like he was cock of the walk!
Not like the whipped one!!
Oh Yes....We are a two peas in a pod!!!
