Most of us doubt ourselves and feel vulnerable at times. Even those who seem super-confident in social situations are often freaking out on the inside when it comes to small talk and meeting new people. Here is some advice from Dr.Phil on how to believe in yourself and fight that self-doubt. Thanks Phil, you lovely moustached legend.
We Irish are the WORST at this. And us Irish women reach another level altogether. How often do we work really hard, achieve something really special or do something really kind only to say “Ah sure lookit, it was no big deal.” It is a big deal, and if you don’t recognise that, others won’t either. Being able to receive a compliment allows you to actually acknowledge and accept it rather than brushing it off and putting yourself down. How about next time, try saying “Thanks. I appreciate that. I worked really hard, and the fact people noticed is lovely.”
