“The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.”

It can be difficult at times to believe in yourself, especially if you feel like you have nothing to offer or are unworthy of things. But you are worthy and more capable then you sometimes believe.
Self confidence is what makes us to believe in ourselves. If we want to believe in our self more, we need to build on our self confidence.
The most basic way to boost our self belief is by changing how we think and talk about our self. Stop beating yourself up. Every time you catch yourself thinking or saying something bad about yourself, stop. Say a few good things about yourself and then think about healthy ways to work towards fixing things that you want to improve about yourself.
Another way to build your self confidence is by proving to yourself that you can take on a challenge and so giving yourself things to be proud of. Good ways to do this include traveling or volunteering.
Do things that are difficult. If we only take the easy route, it can be easy to think that we are not capable of doing things that are hard. Prove to yourself that you can take on difficulties by doing just that: take on challenges. Do things that will be rewarding, even though they will be hard work.
Remind yourself daily of your strengths and focus on the positives you have created in your life.
“Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are.”
