How do you become more confident and self-assured?
I feel like this is starting to become a problem now, because I second guess myself. when giving opinions or advice, I doubt myself a lot, and I often question how I feel. I'm uncertain about my decisions sometimes, and it takes me longer to decide things then it use to. it's hard, because I use to know myself a lot better: right away I could make a decision,I was confident in my answers to questions people asked me, instead of thinking about it forever, and I wouldn't worry about the vibe I might put off. now I do a lot more, and I think it has to do with the environment and people I grew up with. I hate it because I use to be so sure of myself at one point, I guess I just want to know how I can be more this way again, because I am going to need to start making some big descicions soon, and that scares me just a little bit. it's time I stop caring so much about what others think of me.
