Self-confidence is a broad concept. This can mean something different for everyone and is often measured at the hand of different parameters by different people. Previous experiences can affect your self-confidence or your self-esteem. This can even date back to when you were very young and be based on the most rudimentary relationship in your life, namely the one with your parents. In many cases, puberty also has a large influence on your self-confidence, since this is a period which has a large influence on your personality and in which you often feel insecure about yourself.
All these influences and then also the choices which you make in your life, can have an influence on your self-confidence. This can be both positive as well as negative. If it is so that you rather have a negative self-image, this can influence several parts of your life such as for example social relationships, work, school, hobbies,… This can even have severe consequences, such as an anxiety disorder or a depression.
