    I struggle with low confidence

    and low self esteem, but I'm definitely trying to put in the effort to build it all up again. I tend to compare myself with others, which I think happens naturally with everyone. One thing I'm learning is that it really is damaging. It's hard to stop, but it's extremely damaging...
