My boyfriend makes me feel like a loser Watch

    #1

    I just started dating this guy. He's pretty extraordinary. He's barely out of his teens and he's already the CEO/founder of young tech startup worth 7 figures. This is all great and I'm happy for him, but I feel like I'm not worthy. Yeah, I'm quite book smart but I'm not going to a great university, I have no sense of direction and have absolutely no idea what I want to do in the future.

    He's very supportive and he's never done anything to make me feel like this but I can't help it. How do I stop feeling like this? I really do like him and I don't want my irrational feelings to ruin this.

    So it's you that makes yourself feel like a loser, not your boyfriend.

    Two things:

    1) Compared to that guy, most of us are losers in career terms. He's been very lucky or very dedicated (or most likely both).

    2) The smart, dedicated, lucky guy has picked you! Even if you don't see why, he does. Have faith in his judgement, if you don't have faith in yourself.

    You're right! I guess I'm just looking for advice on how to stop making myself feel like a loser.

    But don't winners usually end up with other winners?

    Not everyone can be a winner. Besides it doesn't sound like you're a loser. Just you have low confidence.*

    My wife makes me feel like a loser too.

    It sounds more like a lack of confidence in your case though.
