The problem with self doubt

… is that it is like a cancer that attacks your emotional being.

If it attaches in one aspect of your life, it doesn’t stop there. It spreads. It wiggles its way into everything. It finds those dark spots you ignored. Those cracks from past traumas. The blanks of missing knowledge. The bruises from unpleasant encounters. If a soft spot exists, it’ll find it, and it will infect it.

Fighting back is not easy. The very confidence you need has been undermined. The resolve you need eroded under the relentless attack. Before you know it, your confidence is like a rotting apple on the tree … the skin still shines bright under the sun, but the core has already started rotting. Slowly and unnoticed by all, and before the skin wrinkles, before the rot breaks through, the apple withers.
