Self confidence is the expression that we use when describing the view that we have of ourselves. It is an indication of what kind of person we think we are, what our abilities are and what the future holds for us.
With high self confidence we feel good about ourselves and believe that the future is worth looking forward to. It enables us to have a positive outlook and better equips us to overcome the challenges of life without them affecting us.
When our self confidence is low, our thoughts and feelings about ourselves are low. We generally focus on our weaknesses rather than our strengths. Our entire outlook on life is affected and we find it far harder to overcome any problems that come our way. We are unable to cope with everyday difficulties. The way to overcome these difficulties is to value ourselves. When that happens, confidence grows and as a result we feel good about ourselves. We feel confident and see challenges as opportunities.
There are signs that could indicate low confidence, some could be:
- feeling hopeless or depressed
- feeling bored with life
- having no motivation
- feeling constantly anxious or fearful of making a mistake
- lack of assertiveness
- feeling overly sensitive to criticism
- thinking there’s nothing to look forward to
- thinking negatively about yourself
- feeling tired a lot of the time
- feeling like a failure
- wishing your life was better.
