This is the fifth week of our Quest for Confidence series. Last week, I talked about learning to accept abandonment. This week, I’m going to talk about disappointment and what you need to understand about it in order to help you move forward in life and, especially, in your writing.

Last week, I shared with you the causes of insecurity.

My lack of confidence nearly destroyed my business and led to me being forced to move in with family.
