How I Overcame Another Painful Battle With Self Doubt

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last wrote anything for this page. I’ve been trying to work on my business, but if I’m honest, I’ve been doing more overthinking than actual work. Somewhere along the way, I seem to have lost my self-belief.

I spend my days dancing between telling myself that I can do it and questioning whether I am capable of anything at all. It’s like some horrific pantomime being played out in my head. A part of me is trying to keep my head above water, but another part of me, AKA Veronica, is intent on pushing it under.

Although I know that it takes time to get things up and running and get the momentum going, I’m being so hard on myself about my own business not exploding onto the scene after only a few months. I launched Clare H Writes back in November, set up social media pages and a website, wrote a few pieces of content, and asked my friends and family to spread the word. In the grand scheme of things, it’s still very early days, so why do I feel like such a failure?

Why do I have that constant niggling voice in my head telling me that I can’t do it and that I should just give up now? That I will never be good enough and I was stupid to think I ever would be. I wouldn’t have said these things to my friends, so why do I think I am so deserving of such negative words?
