Let me throw the question at you: Have you ever wondered why you see a particular situation differently from the person you are with?
Where your friend may see the event from one angle and maybe it reduces his self-confidence, you may see it from a totally different angle, and in your case, you may find that it boosts your confidence.
How can that be? You both witnessed the same situation.
Simply put, it was not the event that reduces or uplifts confidence. It is merely how the event is interpreted.
Your friend was responsible for that lack of confidence, in much the same way that you were responsible for added confidence, simply by the way you both thought about the event.
To build confidence, keep that decision to accept 100% responsibility for how you deal with and respond to all situations.
