“When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.”
~Honore de Balzac~
You know what that voice in your head says:
You can’t do it. You’ll never be good enough. You’re going to fail.
This voice taunts you whenever you set a goal. It criticizes you when life gets difficult. It beats you down when you struggle to stand up against its running commentary.
You know you shouldn’t let self-doubt bother you, but it’s a sneaky critter. Sometimes, you just can’t contain it and it slips past your barriers.
And self-doubt is greedy.
When it’s loose, it devours your confidence, strips logic and reason from your mind, and steals happiness from your heart. In return, it leaves you with only fear and insecurity.
You try to remove self-doubt by forcing yourself to “think positive,” which usually doesn’t work as well as you think it should.
The more you fight your self-doubt, the more it fights back. However, with self-knowledge and understanding, you can use self-doubt for your benefit.

Reblogged this on Voice of Lesbian Senior and commented:
AS the “Voice of the Lesbian Senior ” …. this applies to all ages and all lifestyles! Take a look …..
My mother told me often that I’d never amount to anything. I guess in her book I didn’t but her book doesn’t matter to me anymore. A kid can never un-hear those things.
It’s good that her book doesn’t matter anymore. I can imagine how those things can’t be unheard …..
But you proved her wrong!! Hugs …
Our failure to believe in ourselves is passed along.
Agree!! That’s what several readers have commented. Lessons that are very hard to unlearn!
