you see, the thing about self esteem is
it doesn’t matter how many people you have supporting you, telling you you’re talented, or attractive, or smart
because in the end, if you truly cannot believe it yourself
or worse, if you depend on those outside forces to confirm positive perceptions of yourself
you still feel pretty shitty.
Usually my problem.
I rely on egotism and narcissism to make up for my lack of self-confidence. It’s why i need validation from time to time to make me feel better. Otherwise I’m not productive at all and I just lay around depressed all day.Source: commanderpigg
