I was talking to my friend about this, because she often suggests that I am overly secure with myself. We had the following conversation:
M.E.: I think you're the one that's really made me realize that I am basically not insecure about anything
Friend: If anything you're oblivious
Friend: To others reactions or positions which in turn insulates you and makes you immune
Very insightful, I thought. I do seem to have the ability to be targetedly oblivious to things. I know in the abstract that there are people who hate or judge me, but I probably wouldn't be able to name specific people. Is this the origin of my confidence? Is it really because I don't care what people think, or that I think they're wrong, or maybe that I just am blind to others disapproval.
