Self-doubt can impact many areas of a person’s life. It can stifle growth and negatively impact relationships. 

If you struggle with mental health issues or addiction, you may also experience self-doubt at times. You may find yourself doubting whether or not you have the abilities needed to work through the challenges that lie ahead of you. 

When you struggle to believe in yourself, that doubt can make starting the process of recovery and healing difficult. Taking the time to focus on yourself is crucial. If you are struggling with self-doubt, here are a few tips to help you work through it. 

Remember Your Journey

Remember your journey and everything you have already accomplished in life. Nobody’s journey is constant success. Everyone faces achievements and challenges, both ups and downs. 

Self-doubt can creep in when we are struggling the most. Try to focus on your journey as a whole and recognize that what is happening now is only a small portion of your entire life. 

Acknowledge Your Inner Critic

Your inner critic can be the harshest person that you will ever meet. Acknowledge that when you doubt yourself, what you are feeling is your inner critic. Remind yourself that what you are feeling is temporary and that you can choose to focus on the positive.

Surround Yourself With Supportive People

When you surround yourself with positive people, you tend to remain positive as well. Self-doubt can create a negative atmosphere, where you focus on everything that you feel you cannot accomplish or do well. 

Having supportive people around you will help you stay out of that negative zone. Remaining positive will help you focus on everything that you can do and how capable you are and help you work through any mental health issues you may be facing and overcome your addiction. Having a positive mindset is very powerful and can benefit you every day.

Self-doubt can be challenging to work through. Doubting yourself can consume your life and stifle your growth. Working through self-doubt is essential as you begin your recovery journey. Acknowledge that your inner critic tends to be extremely harsh. Surround yourself with positive people and remember the journey that you are on.
