Losing your confidence is neither a unique nor—have faith—an irreversible condition. Everyone has moments when they feel less than capable, less than stellar, less than beautiful, less than…well, just about everyone around them!
Feeling ‘less than’ can result from something as simple as a bad night’s sleep.
