As someone who has experienced a loss of self-confidence, I’ve learned a few things about how to go about rebuilding it.
It’s a real blow when you’ve been a reasonably confident person or even a very confident person and something happens that sends your confidence plummeting and the world as you knew it into a tailspin.
A lack of self-confidence is closely related to low self-esteem. In fact, I think the two go hand in hand. The consequences of being in this kind of head space can be so damaging: negative thought patterns, fears and anxieties, and even depression. This is not a head space in which you’d want to linger for long. You’ve been confident before and you can be confident again. It just takes a little bit of self-investment, planning and actioning.
Below, is an anagram I’ve put together of 14 ways to start rebuilding your self-confidence.
Over weeks to come I will elaborate a little more on each of the 14 points listed above. In the meantime, you might be interested in reading some posts I’ve already written on the following topics: self-care, self compassion, gratitude & generosity, and move that body!
How self-confident are you on the scale of 1-5 below? Ever had a dip in self-confidence and had to rebuild?
1 = very low self-confidence, 2 = low self-confidence 3 = average level of self-confidence, 4 = above average level of self-confidence, and 5 = super duper self-confident!
