If just one person believes in you…

10 02 2009

Deep enough, and strong enough, believes in you…
Hard enough, and long enough,
It stands to reason, that someone else will think
`If he can do it, I can do it.`
I suppose it’s no great secret that the biggest challenge I’m having to overcome in tanking with Dandy is my own lack of self-confidence. Given that the Blood tree had a rather shaky start when the expansion launched, and having only very recently come into its own, it always seemed like the people who were convinced I couldn’t and shouldn’t tank far outnumbered the ones who thought I could. But there’s something to be said for a persistent and vocal minority…

Making it: two whole people, who believe in you
Deep enough, and strong enough,
Believe in you.
Hard enough and long enough
There`s bound to be some other person who
Believes in making it a threesome,
Making it three…..
People you can say: believe in me…..

And if three whole people,
Why not — four?
And if four whole people,
Why not–more, and
more, and
None of this is to say that I don’t have supportive tanking mentors – I know I do. And I am deeply indebted to them for the help and the encouraging words and the advocating of patience, especially when I needed it the most. And slowly yet surely, it seems like other people have begun to join that supportive minority.

And when all those people,
Believe in you,
Deep enough, and strong enough,
Believe in you…
Hard enough, and long enough

It took words of confidence this weekend to get me to try something I didn’t think I could do. And as it turned out…I could do it after all. But if it weren’t for that friend…I would never have tried in the first place. For those words…thanks, Keltyr. It meant a lot.

It stands to reason that you yourself will
Start to see what everybody sees in

And for everyone else who’s stood by me and told me “yes you can, just keep at it” – thank you, too. Thanks for your faith and your patience and your willingness to pay repair bills while I sussed out the ins and outs of tanking as Blood. I couldn’t do it without you guys. You’re the best.

And maybe even you,
Can believe in you… too!
Lyrics – “Just One Person” from Snoopy
