Re: How do you build self confidence?

Has anyone found cognitive behavioral therapy to be helpful?

I have a bad habit of looking for quick fixes, thinking the solution is always something as simple as starting a new medication. Maybe I need to dig deeper, could the solution be to somehow address years of damage, be it through CBT or something else?
I got this sheet on a whole bunch of ways to build self-confidence off of a YouTube video. Let me see if I can find it in my files!

Does addf allow you to attach documents to posts?

All the best,
