The stress most people go through in grad school isn’t talked about enough; I don’t think there’s a better way for someone’s confidence to be all but obliterated. I think that you still haven’t escaped the mentality that you’re less than. I also think if you want this to change you’ll have to prove it to yourself.
Set goals that will push you outside of your comfort zone inch by inch. Journal. Share your experiences with others; find a different online forum, such as OKClarity which is the Jewish wellness blog I use, or continue using tiny buddha’s, just so long as you’re actively using these resources as a way to confront your mental health.
I’m sure that as you were writing this post out, for example, you felt a lot of different emotions welling up. That’s what it takes to really care about your wellness, being more self-aware about these emotions and where they stem from. Only then will you be able to do anything about the root cause, and begin to see change.
