If you have you recently lost a job, been through a painful breakup or similar circumstances you may think that it is impossible to regain confidence and be happy. But the truth is, this is possible.
Confidence is a highly sensitive trait—it takes a long time to build but could easily snap in just a moment.
In this highly competitive society, it can be really easy to feel inferior to others. You look at other people and their achievements and these things may make you feel less of a person than you are.
People encounter these feelings of insecurity on a daily basis. We can call this a normal part of life. But sometimes, something happens like the loss of a job, a break up, or a failure at school can shatter someone’s confidence so bad that people experiencing you feel as if your self confidence will never be the same again.
But the good news is that, one’s confidence can be picked up and rebuilt; but, only if you are willing to do so. It is going to take time and a lot of efforts, before you begin to feel at your best again.

Spend some time alone.

You may be in a period where you can barely see one good thing about yourself, but give yourself time and do things that you have read above, and you will regain your confidence.
