acting confident

  • where do you draw the line between pretentious and confident? what is appropriate? everyone has a different perspective.
  • Should someone keep quiet about their background and accomplishments because it will be perceived as pretentious? I'm honestly wondering about all this. Feel free to inbox me and I'll listen with an open heart.
  • I do astrology for profit, yes, it is necessary for me to act confident in what i do... sure, one time i knocked down a certain someone, and i think a bunch of people now think less of me consequently. it is what it is. i'm just incredibly fortunate to have dozens of friends on this site!

*Check Moon too*

How to Deal with Rejection, or Being Victimised

1. Remind yourself of who you really are – and use positive self-talk to change the way you feel.

2. When you have to speak to someone who outwardly rejects you, or makes you feel bad about yourself, try to act as if you love and feel good about yourself. Fake courageous feelings, and act self confident. (“Fake it till you make it” – and you’ll find your feelings change.)

3. Respond in a friendly, self respecting way – and they’re likely to treat you the same way too. Control your interactions by setting the tone. You be the one to have the upper hand.

4. Use humour in uncomfortable and awkward situations. Humour defuses tension, and puts people at ease. If someone is rude or insulting try to find a way of turning it into a joke. People who have bullying tendencies expect you to get anger or act in a defensive way. When you respond with humor, they don’t know what to do.

5. Overlook small stuff. It’s not worth get upset over every little thing. They’re not worth the effort and energy.

6. Always believe in yourself. You know the truth about who you really are. You’re not stupid; you’re not a victim. You are one who is charge of your life, and is at the helm of your destiny. You have plenty of things to feel good about, and you’re going to make something really wonderful of life.

Okay so pining Keith is a thing and now I’m imagining Lance one day just being really insecure and lonely and telling Keith about how he’s always flirting but in reality all he wants is a real relationship, and that he’s never been in one. Also that he may act confident for show but can’t imagine someone ever actually falling for him and Keith is just sitting there silent and hurt because if he could just tell Lance how he felt. How pretty the midnight blue specks of his eyes are and how vibrant, warm and beautiful Lance is as a whole, inside and out. And it just kills him daily because how could someone this radiant ever believe no one could love him when he’s so deeply in love with him already.


-“shrug” your shoulders very slightly. eventually it’ll feel nature if you keep at it. it makes your shoulders look bigger. Put your elbows on chair arms to do it while sitting

-clench your jaw a little bit. it sounds really weird but it’ll make you look like you have a more masculine jaw line

-walk with your stance every so slightly wider than usual. it’ll make your lips slightly less pronounced and make your shoulders look squarer

-Don’t move out of the way for people gracefully. not saying don’t move out of the way at all, but let yourself brush shoulders sometimes. You can also just be more spacious about it. And yes, in a crowded hallway you probably shouldn’t maneuver your way through.

-Be comfortable! I shit you not, this can be magic for passing. Be relax, act confident, and lean back and be comfortable. People see it as dominance and we subconsciously see dominance and our mind trails to masculinity

-when you sit in the floor, sit with your ass on the floor. Indian style or with your legs out works. Don’t sit on your legs or in that weird W shape (that’s bad for you anyway)

anyone feel free to add any other weird behavior passing tips you’ve discovered!

Your first date with Draco would include…

-Him acting all self-confident while asking you to go on a date with him

-Although he’d actually be absolutely nervous about your answer

-Flashing you a charming smile without showing too much of his excitement as you accept

-Him deciding to take you to dinner at a nice restaurant first and arriving about half an hour early to make sure everything is perfect

-Being beyond happy when you finally arrive because you somehow managed to look even more beautiful than you do anyways

-Loving how a soft shade of pink spreads across your cheeks every time he compliments you

-Him feeling completely at ease with you and enjoying the way he could basically talk about everything with you 

-Both of you feeling some kind of connection, like you are just completed in each others presence

-Talking non-stop and not even realizing that the restaurant is about to close

-Draco offering to take you to a walk near the lake if you still want to

-You gladly accepting his offer and smiling as he helps you into your jacket while leading you outside

-His arm eventually fining it’s place around your waist 

-Sitting near the lake next to each other and although you aren’t talking much anymore, both of you know what doesn’t need to be said

-Him softly placing his hand on your cheek before bending down to engage you in a passionate kiss

-Walking back to your common room hand in hand, knowing that this was definitely not your last date

Dear med students

You are not a burden.

We had a trio of M2s drop by the inpatient service yesterday afternoon and the attending asked if we had any patients who would be good for them to meet. One of mine is the sweetest old man (we talk about our cats every morning when I round on him) with some interesting heart pathology. I recommended him.

This morning when I rounded I asked how he was doing and he said “Some medical students came to talk to me yesterday about my heart. They were so sweet! I was so excited they wanted to talk to me, it made my day!”

Sometimes I felt bad talking to patients as a med student, clumsily asking questions, unsure of how to act, not confident in my knowledge base. And some patients don’t like students. But in my experience, those are the exception.

// cute!! wrote this as the boys ( left Jaehee out because I didn’t have time agh ) having a crush on MC but not knowing if he/she feels the same about them


- Seven had held it between the both of you when everyone was out and about celebrating together and said if you two didn’t kiss, he riots.

- He’d act all confident about it but he’s actually really nervous on the inside, because he knows it’ll mean more to him than it would to you.

- If you don’t want to that’s fine though, he wouldn’t force you.

- If you do however, he’ll kiss you on the forehead last minute instead of the lips because he panics a little and kissing you in front of everyone like this?! He’s a little embarrassed.

- When you grab him by the back of the head and pull him back into an actual kiss he freezes for a few second before subconsciously deepening it, he gets goosebumps when you tug on his hair.

- He pulls back after a very.. intense.. moment. He’s a little flushed but he plays it off, jokingly asking how it felt to kiss the best looking man on planet earth.

- But he would like to know.

- Everyone’s a little shocked to say the least when you two are done, but Seven breaks the silence by going on about how he should strike up a job becoming a matchmaker that was so intense, damn.


- He has a ’ Alright let’s just get this done ’ attitude, Seven explained to him last year the rules of mistletoe and hell, he didn’t even know that’s what that little thing in the doorway was until you brought it up.

- But he’s really anxious, he tugs on his sleeves before taking a deep breath and leaning in.

- It’s a quick little kiss, nothing deep but it was still enough to get both of you a little flustered.

- He quickly moves on from it as it it didn’t happen, but he’ll think about it a lot after you’ve gone back home.

- Would invite you back the next day and ’ claim ’ he forgot to take the mistletoe down after yesterday. Rules are rules though, yes?

- If you’re the one who initiates it then he’s frozen for a bit, when you start to pull back is when he really gets into it and deepens it before you have the chance to break away. It’s a little messy but passionate, he’s super apologetic afterwards because he got carried away.


- You two had been shopping out together, helping him pick out gifts for his family and the RFA for Christmas when one of the stores had a little mistletoe hanging above the door frame.

- He notices it right away but it’s too late, you both have already walked under it. Blushy right away and tries to laugh it off, but when you ask for a kiss his heart stops because you’d be his first kiss.

- He agrees but it’s more or less a quick kiss on the corner of your mouth instead of on your actual lips, pull him back for a real one and he will melt

- Red tomato face club, he stutters his words a lot and very flustered the rest of the trip. Can’t stop thinking about how he felt when you kissed him, it was new and nice.


- He meant to hold it over him and Yoosung bUT HE DIDNT REALIZE YOU GUYS SWITCHED PLACES SHITTT

- As soon as he realises it’s YOU hes laughing nervously and– are his glasses fogging up?

- “oOOH SEVEN!! ” Yoosung teases at the table, pushing you two to get it on

- He jokes it off but his eyes are the things that ask permission, you nod slightly and he leans in– It’s a sweet kiss. Open mouth but no tongue, he’s not that bold right now.

- Super flushed as soon as you two break away, plays it off easily but he’s a bright shade of Santa Claus red and his lips feel tingly.


- but he can’t see the mistletoe anyways so

- If you mention the fact you two walked under mistletoe he’s just kind of like Oh?

- You’re the one who’s going to have to bring a kiss up, and he’s pretty shocked at the idea at first but he’ll agree with a little bit of assurance.

- He has to use his thumb to find your lips and traces them slightly before leaning in, it’s a little messy but still very soft and gentle. A closed kiss, but he does cup your face and run a thumb across your cheek.

- Flustered when it breaks, commenting on how he can’t remember the last time he had one of those. Tries to forget about it so things don’t get awkward but he can’t help it, it was just such a nice sensation to feel that again.


- the fuck is a missile-toe

- Seriously, he doesn’t know what that is. You’re going to have to explain it to him.

- “ … Okay.. ”

- Wastes no time, grips you by the back of the head and practically crashes into you– Not even bothering to hide his eagerness.

- Out of everyone’s, his is the most passionate second to Zen’s. But a lot rougher.

- Teeth clashing, tongue, and when he pulls away he bites your lip a little. Holy shit.

- Acts like it’s the most casual thing ever afterwards even though he’s kicking himself for getting so carried away. Hopes playing it out will make everything less awkward, but don’t bring it up afterwards because he’ll get flustered about it.

How You Say Goodbye Before A Mission

An Avengers Preference

Steve: Once you two were public with your relationship Steve would keep you tucked under his arm for as long as possible before a big mission. And you didn’t object. It was nice to be so close to him. Right as he was about to leave he’d hug you tight and press a passionate kiss to your lips. “Be safe,” you’d tell him and he’d smile in response. “Always am.”

Bucky: You and Bucky are the annoying PDA couple about the tower. And it’s at its most annoying before he leaves for a mission. You worry about him, hoping nothing triggers him when he’s out there and that he can keep it focused and make it home. You’d throw your arms around his neck in a deep embrace, locking your lips together before whispering good-bye’s and good luck’s in his ear. He’d carry those words with him all mission.

Tony: Tony likes to talk and act like the big confident guy, but deep down, part of him would be worried this mission could his last and you would be left alone. You knew of his anxieties and always tried your best to stay positive about his leaving. You’d make comments like “My super hero” and “Have fun saving the world”. With a small smile and a chaste kiss he’d lower his helmet and be gone.

Bruce: You know Bruce isn’t a big fan of missions. You just keep reminding him why he’s going. That he is a super hero like everyone else, even if his ‘power’ is a bit less fortunate. You try not to say too many goodbyes and anyway you know the other guy will make sure Bruce gets home safe.

Clint: Clint has a habit of getting a bit cocky before a mission, bragging about how he’s going to save the world. You play along, him never quite noticing the sarcasm hidden in your voice before you pull him close and place a kiss on his lips.

Thor: Thor wasn’t one for big public good-byes. Yours would happen alone in one of your rooms. It’s an oddly gentle moment, given Thor’s size and penchant for battle, with a long hug and soft kiss before you telling him you’ll see him soon. You have no doubt you God of Thunder will make it home in one piece.


When you model, there’s no way you can’t notice yourself. Do you know what I mean? Because you’re constantly surrounded by people saying, ‘Oh, she’s too short, she’s too skinny, she’s this, she’s whatever.’ And you’re right there. They’re talking about you and you’re right there. And.. what I mean is, I’ve gotten less confident. But I’ve gotten better at acting confident.
