Trifecta Challenge: Confidence

Posted by
This week’s word from Trifecta is:


confidence (noun)1 a : a feeling or consciousness of one’s powers or of reliance on one’s circumstances <had perfect confidence in her ability to succeed> <met the risk with brash confidence>b : faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way <have confidence in a leader>2 : the quality or state of being certain : certitude <they had every confidence of success>


ENTRY # 1:

Hoping against hope that this is real, she takes him into her confidence. 

In an ultimate betrayal, her words are thrown back at her in a way so harsh she feels she may never recover from this hurt. 

Her leap of faith has landed her in a black hole.  She is left feeling hollow and humiliated.  How can she ever trust again?

ENTRY # 2:

Needing support from those closest to her, she shares a confidence telling of her struggles. 

She’s met with fake smiles and nods of pity – these things she does not wish for.  She prayed for understanding yet was offered jokes about a situation that is not funny. 

She is broken.  She is alone.


  1. I like the first entry best. Though the overall tone of the first one is more about betrayal of a confidence, it still suits the prompt. Nicely done.


    1. When I wrote these they were two different situations in my head but absolutely see your point. They could be related. Don’t know if she’s found answers or not. Might keep writing about her. 🙂


  2. I’m not sure if I prefer one of your entries over the other because I like different things about them both and they’re both beautifully written. Well done!


  3. Thanks so much for linking up to Trifecta this week. For future reference, please feel free to submit more than one entry in separate links–that’ll make judging easier for us and, I mean, what if we wanted to give you first and second place? 🙂 These are both painful to read. Hope that girl can come to a place of healing. Hope, also, to see you back for the weekend challenge.
