You Don’t have Faith in yourself

Many of us believe in staying in our ego minds when in a difficult situation instead of seeking help from various sources. This keeps us stuck in life and we tend to make mistakes which can cause permanent damages.

You Live in a Fear of Rejection

When you have been overpowered by negative emotions you eventually lose confidence in yourself and start developing a fear of rejection. You let others’ opinion about you take place of your inner guidance.
