How can I build my confidence level?
Q: I am a 22 years old engineering student. I get very scared when someone fights with me, shouts at me or abuses me. I can’t retaliate. How do I become more confident?
A:Sorry to learn about your trouble. No one can get rid of your fears, I can only guide you but you alone have to work towards getting on top of your fears.
Sounds like you need confidence building work, so look at your lifestyle- drink plenty of fluids, eat regular healthy meals, get into a regular physical and mental exercise routine, take on a creative hobby and indulge in meditation regularly. All this will help you be a better human being and the fear will reduce.
What is worse can happen when you have to face someone, face the fear it goes, avoid the fear it grows.
If you think you need support while looking at lifestyle, seek counseling for the same. Your college may have a counselor or seek help from your mentor.
