I've managed to feel okay the past few days through a combination of staying busy and finding some solid youtube channels to get lost in. However, this afternoon has been not so great. I was going through some old pictures and old messages (about two-three years old) and if the me from then saw me now, I wouldn't recognize myself. I lost a huge part of my confidence, arguably almost all of it. Now compared to then, I'm much more insecure and timid. I can't seem to be sure of myself or my position now. I used to be so carefree, feeling like I had things together, and that I would be fine if things didn't go as planned. The source of my loss in confidence is fairly simple to identify in myself. I made a huge mistake in October, something that I never thought I would ever do, and it made me feel like I've turned into the person I never wanted to be. I lost all confidence in my decision making, my intelligence, and myself in general. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how to build my confidence back up in ways that will stick. Thank you so much.
