They pierce fear and rejection into your little beating heart. Rising above insecurities is a battle between you and your brain. You have to fight through the mess of your own thoughts and standards in order find your confidence. Confidence is like reaching for the tweezers in order to take the thorn out of your foot. You know it's going to hurt, but once the thorn is out you are ready to get back on track. Rise above it. Reach for the tweezers.
