Self-Doubt vs Self-Confidence – I could use some help

I find my self confidence is here behind the computer. The only time it is public is if i’m comfortable with the people around me or if i’m pushing myself. I tend to be quiet in a group and loud when i’m one on one. I’d love to have real self confidence.
Now is the time to build it. When i get hit by a negative i try and find the positive within. Generally it works.
Good luck 🙂

I always dabbled in everything else, but my writing, although many times I sneaked a write in my journal, was never taken seriously. My father-in-law, a published author, and English professor (may he rest in peace), once told me, after reading a story I had written, that I should be published. I laughed, secretly thinking he was nuts. Secretly, I was petrified!

Self-confidence, I’m not sure I know what that is. Oh, I know many people who have it. I am not one of them. Could this be why my WIP is sitting, waiting, growing old? Or is it me who is growing old? Maybe it’s both. This probably makes no sense to all…
