Self doubt

Self doubt. Unfortunately it happens to most of us at some point. For some reason or other, we start to doubt ourselves. Any number of reasons might cause this self doubt but one thing to keep in mind is when this starts, talk to someone. For some, this might mean getting professional help but for most, just talking it over with a friend can make a huge difference.

In some cases, talking it over might result in you realizing that others believe in you even more than you do. In some cases, talking it over might result in you realizing that others think the same way as you and you aren’t alone with your thoughts.

The problems really occur when you don’t talk it over and you convince yourself things are a lot worse than they really are. All of a sudden it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy and before you know it, things are as bad as you initially thought.

When looking for someone to speak with, pick someone whose opinions you respect and someone who is willing to hear you out and truly express their opinions later. It doesn’t do any good to speak with someone who can’t or wont express an honest opinion because more often than not, this results in you just getting a confirmation of your initial belief, regardless of whether it’s accurate or not.

Have a great day!
