The way to get off this combined merry-go-round, roller coaster of depression and self-loathing, is to step back and take a hard, cold look at who you’re associated with. You may discover that you’re living in a self-contained prison, surrounded by assholes. It may be time to clean house and “drain the swamp” of negative people, places, and things. Your life may depend on it.
Confidence comes from a combination of self-assurance, self-confidence, and self-determinism. Anything or anyone who seeks to undermine these qualities is not your friend.
