I struggle a lot with what my gifts are. Have I got any? I must have because he gives us all gifts doesn't he? I don't know what mine are. Sometimes I think I get a glimpse and try and explore that but then think I was probably wrong and aren't good at that at all. I think I find it easier to know what I am not good at.

I struggle with self confidence a lot and know this hinders me using any gifts I may have. 

And then there are times when my self confidence is so low I feel I am not good at anything and fail at pretty much everything I try and do. So at that point if my master have me a 'talent' I would probably be so scared of losing it and messing up that I would be the 3rd servant. Figuring that giving back what I have been given intact was better than losing it or making a complete mess of it.

Having said that there are times when I am able to shut the 'your rubbish' voice out and GO FOR IT.

I guess one of the important things is recognising the value of the talent and the one who has given it to us - the one who thought that we would be good custodians / stewards / users of it and the one who looks on us with love as he sees us using what he has granted us for the good of others.
