Here is how to fix your life mentally. Sit down in a quite environment. Once you are settled, Close your eyes. If this is your first time doing this then follow part one if this is not your first go right to part 2. Part 1: With your eyes closed think back in your early child hood as far as you can. Ask your self question in 3rd person point of view. Ask your self about specific events and things that you did that brought you down from when you were once confident mentally about life. Example. ask "When you went to the zoo with your mom, you remember sneaking a stuff animal out of the zoo and your parents caught you. Why does this still trouble you and why shouldn't you worry about it today. " answer "Because it makes me feel bad about myself and i feel bad for my choices bringing a bad experience to those around me. I shouldn't worry about it because  it happened so long ago but something  in my head forces me to be afraid of the past. " Part 2: do the same as part one but relate it with TODAY and not the past.
