Self- Confidence might be artificial disguising insecurities and fears. It can also be manipulative and toxically soothing when an individual uses it to compensate themselves for their issues. It’s toxic because it affects others around them. Healthy self- confidence derives from inner-self which consists of self- worth, self- belief, empathy and compassion. Healthy self- confidence resides in the present moment and rejects uncertainties of the past and future.
