There is a difference between self-confidence and a strong personality.
Strong personalities are magnets for people with low self-esteem.
They augment what’s missing in less confident people so much so that at first it is like euphoria to find what’s absent.
The danger is that weaker personalities can become co-dependent to the stronger person and after a while feel smothered and inconsequential.
Still, it isn’t easy separating from a person who may come on so strong as to eclipse your true desires as they get lost in this battle of wills.
A quiet person can be very confident.
A loud, vivacious person can totally lack self-esteem and make up for it in their minds by being louder and bigger.
The strength that we want is inner strength.
Inner strength does not necessarily have a face or personality. But it’s the confidence of knowing that …
You can handle it
You can do it
You can solve it
And you can work it out
Less confident people are attracted to strong willed people and they pay for it by becoming dependent on their strength at the expense of their free will.
