Here we are on the cusp of 2022 today! And many of you will be trying once again to have a New Years resolution. I’m not a huge fan of those but building self-confidence would certainly be a worthy one!  In this second time around for this episode, as my team and I take a break during the holidays, I’ll tell the story again about a patient who’d begun to find her own self-confidence when she said, “I realized that what I needed  – I’d had all along. It’s like the ruby red slippers. You simply have to know their power and your own power.”

I wasn’t able to forget that analogy. We all have the capacity to learn, to understand, to see and to have confidence in ourselves – but we can sabotage and discount our strengths, values, talents, and gut feelings. In this episode, I decided to trust my own red slippers in this episode, sponsored by BetterHelp, and allow my own mind and heart to create a list of ten things that can build self-confidence – and with humility I bring it to you.

The listener email is from a man who writes that he’s begun having symptoms of anxiety and panic at a time when he and his wife are having troubles and she wants a separation. What would you say?
