I'm suffering from low confidence

by RiRi

I'm suffering from low confidence in a numerous amount of ways. My confidence level is affecting how I run in Cross Country/track, my schoolwork, and my social skills. I didn't have this problem last year. I was fine. I would go out there and would say to myself, "I'm going to run so fast today," But now, Every time I try to think positive, I think negative instead. I'm always thinking lately, what if I fail? I'm scared of failing. It's making me so nervous to the point where I cannot succeed. I don't know what to do.

It's like everything I do, even the slightest thing like writing a response to a question or something, I'm like "what if I did it wrong" I even used to be a good writer, but I'm not anymore because I've lost confidence. Every time I try to write, I can't find the words. It's also harder for me to talk to people and make new friends. Lately, I've been forcing myself to say hi to people whom I know, it's like my head is telling me just say hi.. get to know some people. But I'm scared of that. What do I do?????

Look around you, you will find a lot of other people who have little confidence and all of us go through times when nothing seems to go right.
Try all the pastimes you are good at, and make a list of everything that you enjoy doing and are good at and try to find something good that someone else with no confidence can do.

Watch out for the people who put you down, they may have confidence problems as well and do this to help themselves feel good.

Cultivate positive people who spread cheer around and who are bright and cheerful. If you do something to help someone else that will make you feel good as well
