    Default Fake Confidence vs Real Confidence

    Was watching a clip on Muhammad Ali, and I realised he was such a ****y bastard. Got away it.

    Not only was he a good boxer, but he basically told the US government to **** off over Vietnam.

    Got me thinking - we have all been in a situation where we have basically faked our confidence. And often it does not work.

    What make a guy confident:

    - not being afraid in doing anything, even if it is percieved as negative.
    - Strong masculine body language. Standing up tall. Doing whatever facial expression you feel like.
    - Going out of your comfort zone. Not caring what people think.

    I suspect for many of you guys with extreme insecurities over your hair, even if you fake it for a while, what probably gives it away is:

    - Not doing certain activities due to it.

    This may sound small, but imagine if a girl asks you "let's go swimming" and you make an excuse up. 9/10 of the time, your body language will cringe up, and she will sense that you re insecure about it.

    Or even if you go swimming, you may do awkward shit, like avoid getting your hair wet.

    A confident guy wouldnt give a shit.

    Another good one is:

    - Photographs.

    Girls love photos.

    I can bet a 100 dollars a lot of you guys may freeze up when a photo is taken. Even if at the time, the girl may not notice, people in general will when they see it.

    Again, someone like Ali (I know he was a NW1, but that is besides the point) LOVED the camera.

    I am for example a NW2, due to my teeth, I always was very awkward with the camera. There were a few occasions, it ended up being a deal breaker. I remember one night, the girl friend was like "nah he is not all that, after looking at the photo with her"

    Anyway, the key is acceptance and trying to love yourself. And real confident guys seem to be very comfortable with themselves, despite their looks.

    Because tbh we are all ****ed when it comes to hairloss in varying degrees.

    The problem with hairloss, there comes a time where you just have to accept it - if it is aggressive as hell.
