Roughly a year ago I woke up with a knot in my stomach. I'm a bartender and work in a very stressful high volume place, so to wake up feeling tired or mentally drained is pretty common. This time the knot was different. Like a low grade cramping in the pit of my stomach. Carries with it a sense of dread and impending doom. I feel like I have lost my way and don't have a clue how to find my way back again. I Have a good support system but I feel like the only person who can figure this out is me. My self confidence is completely fractured, and it's started to unravel any and all joy in my life. I've never been the most confident person, but always able to have the game face on so no one sees it. I'm embarrassed of myself and how feeble I feel at 37 years old and I have no idea how to pull out of it. Dating seems impossible because if I don't love myself, how is anyone going to love me? I would really appreciate any insight from anyone with experience in this matter because it's eating me alive from the inside out
