I've been working on retreiving my legendary self-confidence for the last two years after having had it trampled by the Evil One for eight. *g* I think I'm about half-way back.
What does affect my self-confidence is problems. Whenever something goes wrong, I tend to start thinking how if only I were better in this category or that, the problem would be wouldn't be more than an annoyance. Like when my car developed first a radiator leak, and then stopped running completely. . . "If only I wasn't such a failure, I could just take it to the dealer and let him deal with cock-eyed engineering and a computer controlled system that I an't diagnose, much less fix."
