My Low Self Esteem

My self esteem has dropped hugely after my girlfriend of 4 and a half years left me just over a year ago. It was such a shock to me and i was no expecting it. Before then i was confident, happy, i had the girl i loved and wanted to be with for the rest of my time. Since then i have never been then same. I still have the confidence in my abilities, but my self esteem is next to nothing, i hate the way i look, my confidence talking to new people has dropped. i havnt been with another girl since, and i wonder if it will ever happen because i am always doubting myself, that i am not good enough for someone now, that other people are better.
I would love to hear from other people who are sharing a similar experience to me, or if anyone has had the same and has overcome it. Thanks

I had that happen and she used me to run away from her home. That took a few years to get over. <br />

Just because she thinks that the grass is greener else where doesn't mean that you are not.<br />

I know that you are down many of us have been there or are still there but the point is that you are but you need to still get out talk with others and not about her.<br />

It won't come over night ( most of the time ) but it will come and don't fault your self for her issues.
