I think We could all use this.😊
We naturally assume that when someone has problems with confidence, it’s that they don’t have enough of it. But this isn’t always true.
Confidence, like most other traits, is a spectrum. You can have too little, which results in a low self esteem, or you can have too much which results in arrogance.
You can say hubris if you want to sound polite and fancy.
The key is to have a healthy confidence. Like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears you shouldn’t have too much or too little, but just enough.
Having a low self esteem can make you hate yourself, but being arrogant can make everyone else hate you.
Having a low self esteem can lead to:
Self sabotage, poor relationship and social skills, lack of assertiveness, neediness or dependence, and when it gets really bad it can lead to things like eating disorders and self harm.
