I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

When we begin to put our self-worth in the hands of other people and when we look for our validation in others, that's when we can lose our self confidence because we're giving someone the power to control how we should feel about ourselves and their negative attitude towards us can makes us feel negative about ourselves.

Maybe you have some unworked issues. Think about times where your self confidence left you- what kind of things happened.

We need to be positive in every situation. But sometimes we feel like angry with something so that we lose our self-confidence towards it.

Because you were probably a little insecure and slowly you have convinced you're brain that you are not who everyone want's you to be. Its okay to not be accepted by some people because that will eliminate most of the fake ones anyways.

Self confidence is what is on the outside. Self esteem is on the inside. While they're both linked, it's important to nurture both separately. Test your confidence by facing some of your fears!

to be honest sometimes it comes down to negativity or a situation has uprises and that leads to lack of self-confident and not letting yourself go.

You cannot blame yourself saying that you let go of your self confidence. Often there are some incidents in out past that we're not even aware of consciously but they affect our personality big time. Just know that however terrifying it seems, try to do the things that scare you. It may be as basic as raising your hand in class to answer or telling the boy you like that you like him. Just try to get ahold of your mind.

People you meet in life and the impressions that they give about you can affect your opinion of yourself.All these people and disappointing incidents can come in the way of how you feel about yourself and change your authentic self.Understanding who you are can be the key in gaining back confidence.

You let go of self confidence as you were distracted by the negativity around you. You may also have low self-esteem. To find you confidence , you should find your passion.

My self confidence is supposed to hold my hands when things are tough, my self confidence is suppose to nudge me forward and face life courageously , my self confidence is suppose to be my shadow but what happened ? Why did I let it become so weak and so powerless ? When did this happened? Over the years, my self confidence took a beating from all the drama that was going on in my family. I became embarrassed and withdrew further into myself. I did not want to stand out just in case I attracted attention to myself. I did not want the attention nor the response I have to give if I am in the limelight. It's easier to be invisible. I was not important. My voice was not important. And that's how my self confidence slowly lost it's will to grow and became stagnant.

You let peoples opinions about you get to you and now you are afraid of why they think.
