Words, Words, Words about Confidence
Rather appropriate for a blog called Questioning my Intelligence, don't you think? I believe that confidence comes not from knowing answers but from faith that you'll figure out what you can and that what you can't answer is simply Mystery.
Most of the questions worth asking don't have concrete answers anyway, and for the most part, our "certainty" is an illusion created by our limited perspective. Perhaps confidence just comes from the optimistic belief that we're part of something bigger than ourselves and someone (God, in my opinion) has a plan and a purpose motivated by love.
Or am I just crazy?
