First off I'd like to note I had wrote the post for this thread and when I clicked to make the thread it said I had too few characters (the post was three paragraphs long). God dammit.
Anyway when talking to people about their problems I think a very common root to most issues is low confidence. Many people believe they are unequipped to handle whatever issue is troubling them or they otherwise fear things will end badly if they were to attempt to confront it. But why? The problem is that this lack of confidence is irrational. They are not actually unequipped to handle the problem they simply believe themselves to be so.
I'm looking to figure out why people have this issue. Perhaps through greater understanding of the causes one could better propose a viable solution.
