When you believe in yourself you are willing to express your opinion, have a go at things and you trust you will find a way to solve problems. It's important to believe in yourself but sometimes it can be difficult. It can be hard to say, 'I believe in me' when life seems full of obstacles and you feel overwhelmed.

What are the benefits of saying 'I believe in me'?
When you believe in yourself -
you accept yourself as you are
you can deal better with life's challenges
you feel you have the right to express your own opinion and be listened to
you feel okay about doing what feels right for you at a particular time
you don't feel a need to put others down in order to boost yourself

Why can it be so hard to say, 'I believe in me'?
There are numerous reasons it can be hard to believe in yourself including -
negative experiences in early life
negative comments and put downs from other people
lack of support from others
clinical Depression
Social Anxiety
hormonal imbalance
other health issues
setting too high a standard for yourself
being too critical of yourself
listening to negative self talk
feeling different from those around you

If you usually believe in yourself but haven't for a while now, you may ask why
If you can usually say 'I believe in myself' but lately things have changed it could be due to one or more of the following -
being under extreme stress due to the death of a loved one, losing a job, relationship breakdown etc
extreme tiredness. When one is really tired and drained of energy it can be hard to keep going.
not looking after your health. If you aren't eating properly or aren't taking care of your physical well being in other ways, this can have a negative impact on you emotionally.
perhaps you have started hanging out with people who criticise and make you feel bad about yourself

What can you do to help yourself say, 'I believe in me'?
To increase your self belief you could -
accept that everyone makes mistakes
find supportive people to talk to
reduce time spent with critical people and those who laugh at you or put you down
recall your successes
don't dwell on things that didn't work out. Learn from the experience where possible and move on.
look after your health
take a break
use your best time of the day to tackle challenging things when you have more energy
spend time on hobbies you enjoy
ask others for support when needed. Don't try to do it all alone.
praise yourself for having a go, even when the result isn't as good as you hoped
remember to give others praise where it is due

Sometimes you can do something or solve a problem on your own if only you believe in yourself. Other times you need someone else to be involved.

We can't do everything on our own. There is no shame in asking for help, whether it be suggestions or practical help. A supportive doctor can help with a health issue if this is relevant.
