    How confident are you?

    I personally have fairly low confidence.
    I don't take many chances and don't finish things that may be difficult. I want to do things but ultimately I feel it will a waste of time.

    There are a lot of people I would like to blame for it. My mother. My teachers. My wife. Is it really that hard to be a little supportive?

    I suppose there are tons of people with the resolve to be confident of themselves without any outside support.
    I'm not one of them, so ultimately me sucking is on me.

    I'm a lot more confident that I used to be. I think going to University was a big help. About two years ago I just started putting myself in situations where I knew it would build my confidence, even if I was nervous as **** at the time (meeting new people, going to job interviews, doing public speaking, managing a team). I guess I identified what it was that made me anxious and tried my hardest to overcome them. I also attended public speaking training courses, and counselling. I went to the doctors over my anxiety because I was getting absolutely ridiculous (I would wake up nervous) and apparently I had generalised anxiety disorder. I had a bit of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and that helped somewhat.

    Then I guess you need to stop caring about what other people think, which I don't think is actually possible. I agree with you though, I think it depends on your life, how you were brought up and what has happened to you. Nothing like an incident that makes you question your own mortality to make you reevaluate what you should actually be worrying about in life.

    Internets confidence level over 9000.

    IRL sober, pretty damn low.

    IRL drunk, over 1,000,000.

    I'm considering alcoholism.

    I used to be pretty harsh on myself. Really thought I wasn't good enough for anything, recently with some events I feel much more confident, but I still find myself struggling to break out and take risks, but it's all a work in progress. I'm pretty new to "life" looking back on it I missed a lot of opportunities that I shouldn't have let pass me by.
