Crisis in Confidence

posted in: Life 122 comments

I have written about this in a different form, maybe more than once, over the last nearly-two years of blogging.

This crippling self-inflicted issue of low self-esteem, which grips me seasonally.

Self-doubt quote

I’m not good enough.

Everyone else is better than me.

I suck.

I should quit.

I should be good at this, why am I not good at this?

Why do I feel the need for validation?

I am all woe-is-me for a few days (okay, weeks), and I truly question myself. I doubt everything I do. I second-guess every decision I make. I want to curl up in a corner and eat chocolate. I berate myself endlessly. I talk myself into a tizzy of not-good-enough.

Then, I come crashing down in a pile. I lie there, and I just don’t want to face it, whatever it is.

Eventually, I raise my head. I push myself up. I reach out to a *trusted friend. I pour my heart out. I ask for advice (not for validation). I am asked some hard questions. I try to find answers. I am talked off the ledge.

Slowly, I come back to life. I find a renewed sense of purpose. I feel the energy coming back. My mind is buzzing again, with good vibes. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I feel a little more like myself.

I tiptoe gingerly around the things that brought me down in the first place. I look at them objectively. I talk to people. I approach it from another angle. I realize, it’s not that bad after all. I am not that bad after all.

Crisis in confidence – over.

Until we meet again in a few months.

* Thanks, Vanita, for being there for me, and lending me a listening ear. 

How do you overcome any confidence issues? Do you have confidence issues?

    As I recall, when I was going through some blog stuff at the beginning of the year…you talked me down from the ledge a time or two 🙂 I think we all go through this crisis/confidence conflict. It’s just something that happens when you are continually putting yourself out there. It’s just something that happens because so much of your heart and soul is involved in what you’re saying and doing. It matters that much. That’s a good thing.

    Oh, and I love Sylvia Plath, but LORDY, let’s not take a page from her book. mkay? 😉

      It IS a good thing. As long as someone is there to talk us off the ledge. 🙂
      Gosh, never will I go down the Plath path, no worries.

  • March 20, 2013 Tricia

    This process sounds so very familiar. I wish I could offer a different cycle but I pretty much follow the roller coaster you describe here. But I agree with Sarah – it happens because you’re taking risks and being brave and bearing your heart for all to see. And that is beautiful.

  • March 20, 2013 Kim

    I relate to this, Alison – so much. Confidence is a roller coaster of ups and downs and seasons for me as well. I go through times of questioning that fade away with a burst of energy and light. Then the doubts return and leave me unsure once again. I thought it would go away once I had been blogging a little longer, but I still struggle with confidence from time to time. I want to thank you for writing about it, because it helps to know that others feel that way sometimes, too.

  • March 20, 2013 adrienne

    Yes, I do struggle with this. I feel great when I feel good (if that makes sense?) and terrible when I’m in that self hate, second guess phase. Sometimes, people compliment me, and I think, “they must have me confused with someone else.” If I could only ever see myself that way that God sees me. Because of his great mercies I am a beautiful mess! Messy, yes. But, of how He desires for us to believe that we are perfect in Him, just they way we are. This resonates with me more than you know.

    Lack of self confidence? I have been dealing with this my whole life. Sometimes it is worse than others. I do find that blogging has helped me quite a lot in gaining a bit of self confidence…but then there are the posts that get hardly any responses and I start second guessing everything I am doing. It definitely feels a bit like riding a roller coaster (much like parenting) 😉 I guess you just have to take the good with the bad! Thank you for letting us in and sharing your crisis – I am so glad you were able to find a resolution!

    Oh, Alison, I think that we all have this to some degree, though I think that writers tend to get this a bit more since we live our “work” so publicly. Our work is our life, our relationships, our stories. These are all subjective things, but we live in an objective world where things are judged based on numbers, stats, popularity and it can all get so overwhelming at times. I wish I had answers though there is some comfort in knowing that others feel the same way.

Using a sarcastic tone, but I’m serious. Wish I wasn’t. Ugh. All I can say is, feel it, move through it and then try to let it go. (Actually posting a letter to my inner child tomorrow.)

    I don’t think we as writers/bloggers ever don’t go through these phases.I know it hits me constantly. I go through moments where I throw up my hands and say I am going to quit. I think no one is reading so what does it matter. Then I miss it so much that I can’t NOT write and I realize that I am writing for me first and everyone else second so as long as I am writing I am happy. I think your feelings are normal or at least you aren’t alone in them.

    My issues come when I compare myself to others. Because I can always find myself lacking compared to someone else. But when I take a look at what I’m doing and compare only to what I’ve done in the past- I feel much better about myself. And I think that’s really the only comparing we should do. It makes me feel more confident to see how far I’ve come.

    I think everyone has intermittent crises of confidence – it’s only human. I tend to just ride mine out. I’ve learned that if I can step outside my own head for a time, then I’ll see what’s going on, not freak out about it too much, and occupy myself with something else while I wait for it to pass. And I usually do some soul-searching in the process. And at the end of the entire debacle, I generally come out the other side having learned something about myself.

    I hear you! I wish I could turn the self doubt off too. I often look at women who seem so strong and assure of their convictions and wish I were more like that. To be able to speak in front of a group without my face turning bright red. Oprah says with age she stopped caring about what other people thought and started owning the person she is. I hope I don’t have to wait until I’m 50 to do that.

        Ahhh well I think a lot of us struggle with self doubt. I may come across as silly and outgoing, but with every click of the “publish” button I go through an array of “did I cross the line?” or “am I funny or am I that obnoxious girl who doesn’t know when to stop?” or “Do people forward my videos to their friends and have conversations over email about what a fool I am, but then leave comments encouraging me to do more so that they can continue to have content to laugh at?”

        Mmhmmm, yeah self doubt. I’d say I have some of that too. Unfortunately not enough to actually make me stop. 🙂 I’ll be here all day folks!

    Alison, I think, one way or another we all can relate to this. I just had a few bad days not that long ago.

    Oh yeah. I know *exactly* what you mean. Isn’t it interesting how we can feel so alone feeling like this, but so many people go through these emotions all the time? It’s everyone’s dirty little secret…

    I’ve noticed that when I’m going through one of these really low points, it’s right before a breakthrough. We’re fighting with the world and with ourselves because we’re ready for a change. We’re bursting to break free and live more confidently than we did yesterday, last month, last year. Maybe the doubts we have are the parts of ourselves that are afraid of who we will become if we become confident – they won’t have our fear to keep them strong anymore.

    • March 25, 2013 Alison

    It sounds like your confidence crisis is more pushing through your cocoon to break out as a butterfly. Perhaps you’ve reached a new plateau but you’re afraid to climb on it because you doubt yourself, but then you do, of course. And it’s perfect.

    I feel like this ALL the time. I am so glad I’m not the only one.

      Commiserations. And no, you are most definitely NOT alone.

    This is just what I needed to read, Alison.
    I’ve had my shares of confidence issues. The “maybe I’m not good enough of a blogger” type of thoughts has been looming a lot lately. The “I should just stop blogging” kind of a downer.
    BUT you, lady are so loved by so many here – myself included – you are awesome!

    You know I have blogged about this same thing. This crisis of envy and not feeling good enough and just…falling.

    You captured the rise and fall and cyclical motion of it all so well here.

      I do remember reading that – but you know you and your writing are awesome right?

    Ugh… I can identify with this sick cycle. It happens to the best of us, I suppose. Ever annoying, but glad to know I’m not alone.
