Have you been struggling with self-doubt lately?
Two years ago, I hit rock bottom. I was at my lowest. I was faced with so many rejections, failures, and disappointments that I ended up doubting myself.
Every time, I started to do something good, I would stop myself from being happy, believing that I could never do anything right.
I struggled with confidence so badly that I also thought the only thing I can do was to disappoint.
And let me tell you, living my life like that was exhausting. I was so unhappy. Stressed and overwhelmed. I hated myself, I didn’t believe in myself that I never really went after what I wanted.
It kept me stuck and lost.
If you’re feeling the same way, don’t feel bad, instead, try to remember that we can still do simple things and make small changes that will help us overcome self-doubt and be confident.
