Another problem on confidence...

Just read the post by pink stripes...

My sister has the same problem, she lacks confidence in her abilities. We've tried talking to her, telling her she's as good as anyone, maybe even better but she's just not taking it in. She's a smart girl, did well in school but due to her lack of confidence, her grades fell and barely passed the last time. She's in a school band, enjoys performing and playing the instruments but is nervous when rehearsing with the rest of them. She thinks she's a slow learner, not as good as other people and feels like she's causing the whole band to slow down because of her. I really don't know what else to say or do. She's 14, by the way.
