DECEMBER 21, 2017: In my interview for the Tao of Self Confidence, I spoke frankly about my journey to finding more self-confidence. I talked about the quarter-life crisis I went through before deciding to leave New York to live in Taiwan. I also talked about how things changed for me and I got on the path to write while I was in Taiwan. But all is not going to be revealed in here. If you want to hear all of the juicy details and why my podcast episode is called "The Artist's Way With Felicia Lin," you'll have to my listen to my interview on The Tao of Self Confidence podcast, which is Episode 430: The Artist’s Way with Felicia Lin.
What I will share here is my personal definition of self-confidence, which I shared during the interview:
For me, self-confidence is knowing that no matter what, no matter how bad things get or seem, if I’m depressed, disappointed, heartbroken, feel like a failure or lost, I still know that somehow I will pull through. Things will get better, and I will figure things out. It’s the sense that I am strong enough to get through the worst, but it is also being strong enough to know when you need to ask for help or admitting that you don’t know something.

As Pia said in the interview, the book (Metropolicks) goes into everything from speed dating, sperm donors, anger management issues, drug use, and alcoholism, but Metropolicks is about much more than that with spiritual subplot lines, and five characters who each have his/her own unique path in their quest for love. If you missed out on hearing our interview, you can now listen to it here:

In the words of Victor, "There's a flavor for everybody. It's not one size fits all when it comes to dating in New York."
