So I met this Australian. I was doing some casual shifts in a bar in central London and he was also working there.
You know when friendships just happen? They require no effort, something just clicks and conversion never dries up? This is what was happening.
One difference though - his confidence. I always thought that I had confidence but this guy was on another lever. He pushed me, challenged me, encouraged me, loved me, supported me and then headed back to Australia.
We only knew each other for 18 days. But I have dramatically changed.
