How do I handle self doubt?


I think it’s about time I share whats been bothering me for a very long time. You see, I have a lack of self confidence because there are a lot of habits and traits of mine that I’m really not proud of. For instance, I’m usually a pretty nice guy, but I have a habit of not being aware of those around me at times and as such, I can’t help but get the feeling that I’m somewhat selfish and I’m not as nice as I seem, even if what I did was unintentional or that I was unaware. Leading to the morality crisis that I’m facing right now. Problems such as that are why I never really gotten out with friends outside of school during my adolescence because I’m afraid of people finding out the dark side of me. That and it’s also why I’ve never fallen in love or haven’t gotten a job yet, I’m just not happy with who I am and I get discouraged by that very easily. While I’m capable of compassion and kindness which are some traits that I am proud of, it’s just when something such as what I mentioned before happens to me, the doubt easily overwhelms me and I really begin to question who I really am. So to those who’ve had this problem before, how does one handle self doubt and gain confidence in ones self?

Well, it's hard to say, but whenever I forget to put other people into account of something is where I doubt myself. Like I said I'm usually compassionate, but it's a mistake that happens to me from time to time. But thank you for replying, much appreciated.
