60 day Review

Everything went well until we got to “Confidence”. Apparently, I show that I don’t have confidence. I can feel it as well. However, my anxiety “AT” work has stopped and now I fear it will return as I consciously try to be more confident or show it. I find my mind drifting from consciousness to unconsciously thinking of self doubt. I don’t like being judged. I don’t like having to prove myself. In other news, I’m starting a painting class soon and hiking season has returned. My weekly unwind.

Congratulations on getting through your review! It sounds like your employer is over all happy with you. I'm not surprised that someone suffering from depression and/or anxiety would be told that they are lacking in confidence. In an ideal world, you would be able to explain to your employer why you lack confidence and get some support - but, of course, the real world isn't that understanding or compassionate. So, play the game. Try to demonstrate confidence but don't beat yourself up for not really feeling it inside. More confidence will come over time. Until then, fake it until you make it. Best of luck to you.

I hate those reviews, for me in in a room with my boss telling me how I am doing and what I need to improve on. Mostly my attendance is an issue cause depression and anxiety keep me away. I mainly work for money and so that I don't drown in my thoughts. Having work to distract you is good, it sounds like you are on the right track.
