Negative thoughts / lack of confidence

I have been doing a nearly impossible job for which I am not qualified for nearly 2 years and finally couldn't take it anymore. It made me hate waking up every day and pretty much consumed my entire life.

I was never able to please my boss, no matter how hard I tried, or how many hours a week I worked (sometimes nearing 70). I finally just quit and am finished in a few days. Part of me thinks that it was an impossible situation, but part of me thinks that I was just too stupid to do the job well.

I have always struggled with problems with self confidence and now feel that I am at an all time low. I feel stupid and incapable and depressed. I don't want to look for another job, but I need to find one right away. I don't want to interview, I don't to deal with normal work and people issues feeling the way I feel right now. I just want to curl up and be away from the world.

Negative thoughts
by: Kay

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. Now is not the time to curl up! Now is the time to stand and be counted, stop thinking negatively and work on what you are going to do with the next phase of your life.

If you did a job for which you weren't qualified for two years, no way were you too stupid to do it.

At present you are filled with negative thinking that will do nothing whatsoever to help you in your future. Negative thoughts bring negative results.

Start with the positive! There's always a positive in everything you do. Change your thought pattern, stop with the 'I can't do' thinking and bring on the 'I can do this' attitude.

Keep with the right attitude in everything, no matter how difficult things may become, and you will become a much stronger person, who in time, will become confident. It truly is a matter of keeping your thoughts positive, and this will give you the determination to better yourself.

Good luck.
