    What are the differences between confido mihi,confide tibimet and tibi confide? I understand from previous threads that tibi being first makes it a more important pronoun and -met adds emphasis. Do they all come up to meaning the same thing or is there a subtle difference I'm mising?

    Confido mihi means "I believe in myself ". Not exactly what you're looking for.

    Tibi confide is just a normal "believe in yourself ". I think the "-met" is almost too emphatic, like "believe in YOURSELF (rather than anyone else)" but I'm not sure.
