Confidence? Umm…

How would you rate your confidence level?

I have a PhD from UC Berkeley. I’ve presented at national and international conferences. I’ve taught for 31 years. So anyone would think my confidence level would be high.

But in another blog post I mentioned the 10 year old boy who hides inside me and undermines that confidence. At the most inopportune times he gives me a kick, shaking my confidence.

I can’t exorcise him, so it’s an uneasy detente. How do I deal with him? Acknowledge his presence and act the role of someone who can ignore that inner voice. No one needs to know he exists.
