Unfortunately, self-doubt will not only affect our character and the way we live our lives, but it will also eat into our very core, into our soul.
It also has power over us until we take its power back, zap our confidence and take away reason and logic from our thinking and turn what little confidence we have into fear and insecurity. Self-doubt isn’t something we consciously think about, but we will soon know if we are struggling with it.
It takes a different thought process to turn self-doubt into confidence, but once we have learned how to bring understanding into the equation, we will begin to believe in ourselves more. We will continue to live with self-doubt when we carry guilt, particularly other people’s guilt.
Self-doubt tends to settle where negativity sets in and negativity sets in when we’re feeling anxious or stressed. As a consequence, we will always struggle to feel good about ourselves. To change self-doubt and turn it into confidence, we must rationale our thoughts so that we begin to understand the feelings we have when we’re anxious and stressed.
Like anything in life, it’s a choice we make, but perhaps we must learn to believe in ourselves more and not allow ourselves to be sucked into self-pity and feelings of self-doubt. We must start looking at our lives a little more, look at the part we play, what issues are ours and what issues clearly belong to others.
We must be happy to accept those and then learn to understand how we can change things. When we have mastered those things, we can take self-doubt out of the equation. In order to build ourselves back up again, we need to use self-belief as a tool.
