"Your personality is not set in stone. You can always develop to be a better version of yourself. Let your personality shine from within" – Asad Meah
Have you ever felt that you will not be able handle a particular situation? Have you lost confidence in doing your best? Have you lost control of yourself over time? Is your low confidence making you depressed?
Self-confidence can be defined as a belief in one’s abilities. On the other hand, low self-confidence can be defined as a lack of faith in one’s abilities and competence. Some of the many causes of low confidence may include: an unhappy childhood, poor academic performance in school, stressful life events such as a breakup or some financial trouble, poor performance at work and the inability to handle stress. Low self-confidence is not always your fault and understanding the causes behind it is the first step to making amends.
Having confidence can help us feel ready for life's experiences. When we're confident, we're more likely to move forward with people and opportunities — not shy away from them. And if things don't work out at first, confidence helps us try again. It's the opposite when confidence is low.
