I have low self esteem/low self confidence. I question myself at everything and anything. The cloud of doubt and what if's loom over my head constantly with EVERYTHING I do.
How can I build my self esteem when my husband isn't supportive or doesn't ever push me to be my best. It seems as though he's always there when I fail though....reminding me of what I said I was going to do, but never did. To say the least he's not supportive or helpful.
So how do I pull myself out of this hole while still being around a negative, un supportive influence? I know your not supposed to depend on people for your happiness, but others can sure tear you down over time!....
PS....my husband doesn't understand any of how i'm feeling.....so it's like talking to a brick wall. I feel lonely and not worth anything, even though I know I have the potential!

You should evaluate your support system. Who do you have to talk to besides your husband? Family/other friends? U should work on building up a bigger support system. Get out there, volunteer and make friends! That way, your husband doesn't feel the pressure of being the only one. Also look into getting counseling. It sounds like you have an inclination for chronic depression or some cognitive psychological condition due to your negative thought patterns. This is treatable if you seek help. U can retrain your mind's thought patterns. Let your husband know that he's not helping your situation and suggest better ways of how he can help you. He can't push you to be the best but you can let him know not to say certain things or rub in failures. Look into self-help books on ways you can push yourself to be your best. Confidence stems from knowing that you are all u need ;-) Tell urself u rock everyday!
