Self Confidence Problems
Self Confidence Problems Helped with Counselling & Psychology in Wolverhampton
When people believe in themselves and their abilities to succeed in life we describe them as having high self confidence.
People with high self confidence tend to have certain characteristics associated with them such as the ability to be:
- Highly Sociable
- Popular with others
- Un-ruffled by problems
- Un-phased by illnesses
Many people will experience self confidence problems at some point in our lives and this is a perfectly normal experience to have, but there are some people whose entire lives seem to be experienced with self confidence problems, often expressed as feeling “not good enough” and for them, life can be challenging on a daily basis.
It could be, for example, that they do not feel “good enough” to mix with people and so become socially withdrawn, or perhaps the idea of going for a job interview seems so pointless as they already “know” that they aren’t “good enough” for the job and so what’s the point in attending.
People with self confidence problems tend to have low self esteem and will almost certainly also suffer from what is called Social Anxiety which is the degree to which a person feels “judged” by others
The more social anxiety you suffer, the more pronounced your self confidence problems.
What causes self confidence problems?
There are a large number of things that can result in self confidence problems, but as far as we are concerned they probably fall into two main categories:
- Some sort of negative or emotional experience that has taken place, normally where you failed to live up to some “standard” and felt, or were made to feel, embarrassed or “small” as a consequence. It is particularly important to note that this “standard” which was not achieved may be real, or simply imagined.
- The slow development, over time, of negative or unhelpful thinking patterns that start to impact more widely on the way you feel about yourself.
We call this a “cognitive distortion” and it is well known that thoughts actually directly affect feelings.
In other words the “way you think” determines the “way you feel”.
These thinking styles or limiting beliefs, can self-reinforce and lead into a downward spiral of self confidence problems that get worse over time.
