I am confident, and there is everything right with that. There could be an audience of a million strong, I would be okay with that, because the only person's opinion I cared for was my number one fan. So regardless of the glare of the lights or the expanse of the stage, I was always in his arms, always right there in that first moment we looked deeply into each other's eyes and felt that spark of passion. I could stand up and speak to anyone, anywhere in the world and it would be the same as sitting on my couch at home. That's what love can do, it can bring out the strong version of you and shield you from the nonsense the unthinking can cast your way.

If he had every known failure in his life, it didn't show. Everything from the way he held himself, to the way he spoke, to that look of unassailable confidence in his eye said he could do it. What could we do but believe him? Like the others I fell in step behind him, and that was that. He was our new leader.

She was confident enough to stroll into the bar filled with intoxicated teenagers, sing a song despite being out of key, deafening even. Yet she would continue to sing the badly while drunks publicized their thoughts as muffled jeers and curled lips. Then she would bow deeply and strut off stage as the hysterical laughs followed her. She was never one to back out of a dare!
