Bob Maintains His Confidence

Bob Maintains His Confidence.
How well do I react to confidence when I see it all around me in others while I do not seem to have much of it in myself,queries Bob to himself....... and.....how well do I perform at work when I only have a fraction of the confidence I need to do the job.
Its a mean equation to balance but I have to do it well to live and to stay out of harms way.
As long as people are willing to understand and help it is quite bearable.As long as I remain cheerful I can function and do a good job.
Its important to keep learning to function well and do a good job while remaining confident, believes Bob.
He has found a basic template to a sustainable role within himself that an employer would be pleased to use.
Getting to this point has required a self-support system of integrity, prayer and meditation. The essence of Bob's power lies in his patient will and resilience.
When Bob is unwell he feels he cannot fulfil his obligations and he is not alone in this.This lays bare a painful condition - fluctuating levels of confidence fighting with great efforts to do things well.
......and after much struggle and trying Bob stops to reflect that : Honesty in stable poor health is this - sick people work hard by virtue of being sick in the first place. Justice must come to them in the end.Blaming them for their illness and poverty is wrong. They must be protected as well as free to work if they are able.A culture of great discernment in society will make this possible................
With freedom from all forms of stigma to pray a healing mantra on the beads of recovery at our places of worship . Where together or as individuals we might find peace of mind.
