A few years ago, I was going through a difficult time both personally and professionally. I was in a relationship where love wasn’t enough, while at work, my boss had decided to “drive me crazy.” I became beaten down, both mentally and emotionally.
When someone tells you over and over again that you aren’t good enough, that you are always wrong, that you are worthless, it is hard not to eventually give in and believe it, too. When you reach that point, not only does your self-confidence dissolve, but your ability to live well evaporates with it. Life isn’t easy. And when you have low self-confidence, facing challenges becomes even more difficult.
