Couple of years ago I remember having a conversation with my friend about work. I told him there is this vacancy which would suit him. He nodded. I knew he didn’t work much so I was just trying to encourage him as I know he needed a job. Not long after I asked him if he did apply. No, he said, even if I did I would never get that job. Why is that, I asked him. He didn’t believe in himself at all.
It happens to all of us at sometime in life. You lose the confidence in yourself. Self believe is about self confidence, self assurance and self worth. If you keep getting knock down time after time then I understand how all come to this. But other times people just grow to many negative thoughts about themselves and end up feeling worthless.
