I am having major self-doubt going on right now. I am not pleased or satisfied with anything that I say or do at the moment. Even this blog, I can’t so much as go back and read a single post I’ve written without wanting to delete it. I currently am making myself cringe with every little thing, wishing I had said or done something differently, not being happy with myself, assuming that everything that comes out of my mouth is the wrong thing, assuming that everything I say is actually the opposite of what I should have said.
How do I change this? How do I become more assured in what I do and say. Not doubting and questioning every little thing. Constantly criticizing and critiquing. (Say that fast ten times.)
I don’t have any clue really. When it comes to being more assured in myself, with myself, I draw a total blank.
Maybe it starts with self-acceptance? I’m wondering though, how does one achieve self-acceptance? It’s not just like a sweatshirt that you can throw over your head and be done with it. I’m sure it takes work and patience. But even where to begin? I haven’t got an inkling of a clue.
Any ideas or suggestions as to how to lessen self-doubt or how one might embark on the journey of accepting oneself would be much appreciated.
