What time in your life where you the most confident or powerful?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (15878points) 4 weeks ago

In Junior High I was taller than all the bullies and was super confident.
At a 20 something I was night manager alone in a night-shift at a convenience store. I was all powerful, before the wave of stupid people got to me and I broke.

What about you?
serious and humorous answers welcome.

I’ve always been confident in myself, starts & ends with being comfortable in your own skin.
As for powerful, don’t know if I’ve ever felt that, empowered yes.

Most of my life before the accident which brought on my chronic condition. I would stand toe to toe with anyone. I had no fear.
I used to go for walks at night, late, like after midnight. People who knew would caution me that it was dangerous, but gawd I love the night! Everything is quiet. There is only me, and nature. It felt like the planet was mine.
Often street lights would go out just as I got to them, and come back on after I passed. Even more power would surge through me. I was a shadow, and even the street lamps would respect that, and go dark for me.
No one, not a soul ever bothered me during those walks.
Dogs would be barking at crickets, or whatever, and as I walked by I could simply say shhhh, and they would go quiet until I was gone.
I had power. I was power.
I miss me so much.

I guess when I applied for college.
Honestly, I had so much shit going on in my life I sort of forgot until all my friends were posting their college acceptance letters. I had been so focused on applying for school in a different city to be with my then boyfriend that once we broke up, I had no idea where to go in my state. I applied to a tech school about a month before I graduated. Very glad I applied but I ended up changing my major.
