Hi! You know, to give you the best answer, I think I should ask you a few questions first that will help define the problem and the situation.

Your question is very evocative that there is so much behind the simple few words you write. Have you always felt this way?

Was there trauma or abuse in your childhood? What about alcohol or dysfunction in your family?

You have read self help books. Have you read any of the motivational books? Why, do you think, have they not helped your confidence?

Are you a religious or spiritually inclined person?

Any extra information that will help, feel free to share.
