Default Lacking self-confidence

Lacking self-confidence is ruining my life. I have this entrenched thought that I'm not good in anything, and I will never do anything good. So, I don't do anything because I'm afraid that I'll fail. Not doing anything feeds this thought that I'm useless, and on goes the cycle. I would say that regaining my self-confidence is the thing that could potentially help me change my life, but I don't have it. I don't know if this is because of depression, or from my past life's experiences, but it's not there. I know I need to do something to boost my self-confidence, but I don't have any self-confidence to do anything.

Default Re: Lacking self-confidence

i get you im the same due to long period of unemployment and loosing parents ect life can just beat you down but in order to regain confidence you have to act and get on and do key things in life. i know i feel **** because i dont do anything i sleep all day and just watch tv all night. so i know i need to get out thier and do things no one can be good at everything just try and find something that you enjoy and to to do that on a often basis

The problem is that I don't enjoy anything. At summer time I was biking, although I was forcing myself sometimes, but now in the winter, not much I enjoy doing, not even a walk.
