How do I get my confidence back?

Answered 1 year ago

I used to be confident, but over time everyone else's negativity and criticism have worn me down. My inlaw family is very critical and make nasty comments to my face, my own family are pretty negative and my husband has a strong history of blatantly checking out women right in front of me and disregarding my thoughts and feelings. How do I build myself up again and feel better? There seem to be some really strong, confident women on this site and from one mum to another I'd love your advice on how to improve things please?

For me I stopped drinking alcohol, started going to the gym and started eating properly. Then I joined some dance classes, and a barre gym that does yoga and Pilates. The weight fell off I made friends with like minded people and was happy. I also started pampering myself, getting my nails done, eyelashes and buying up to date clothes in my new smaller size. I started feeling good and happy and people are attracted to that and my confidence grew. I really enjoy keeping fit it’s part of my lifestyle. I also take hot baths, sit by the fire and read and enjoy day spas and massages.

What are you lacking confidence in? Is it your physical appearance, in yourself generally, as a mother?

The most attractive accessory a person can wear is confidence! Firstly start with yourself! What makes YOU happy? A pamper day, an hour long bath, quiet time to read a book, fitness session, hair, nails, new clothes, catch up with a friend etc
Always try to start an interesting conversation in a social circle people will naturally engage, dont be the quiet person in the background, learn to block out negativity and harsh criticism and remember those that are trying to bring you down are already beneath you. As for husband you need to chat with him and tell him his behaviour damages your self esteem and ask him how he would feel if the shoe were on the other foot! My motto and I read this somewhere a while back always be with someone that makes other people jealous of you not the other way around. Good luck you can DO IT!!!

Surround yourself with like minded people with what you're interested in. That's a start. Plenty of groups around for many different interests.. good luck x
