The Porcelain Monster

I had a realisation about self doubt and anxiety, it’s actually very fragile but makes itself look huge, overwhelming and impossible to beat. Like a monster made of porcelain, it can be smashed.

You see, every time I’ve challenged my self doubt, by doing things that scare me like talking in front of people, or going places I’ve never been, my confidence and self worth has grown, my self doubt, and anxiety massively reduced.

So self doubt must be very weak indeed to be so easily overwhelmed. All it takes is to challenge yourself a little at a time, and with hardly any effort self doubt dies.
