Update: my gut feeling was right! This post is in response to my post earlier this week on How To Trust Your Instincts.

The Struggle With Self Acceptance And Confidence

I've been in a bit of a slump recently, possibly even spanning over a couple of weeks. I'm not really sure when it all started, I just know that I really started to feel it this week.
