How can I fake self confidence ?

Fake it till I make it?

I’ve struggled with low self confidence all my life, I was put down a lot in my early years, I’m now a male in my forties.

I also have a terrible nervous disposition and I feel that people in public can see my unease and low self confidence.

Any help?

Update:

Thanks for your help foofa.

    Stop thinking of as a performance for others and start thinking of it as a gift you're giving to yourself.

    Ravenhill, for the millionth time, these are not Etiquette problems. These are mental health problems, as you yourself have occasionally told us. Move your questions to the Mental Health category, and - I can't repeat this often enough - so make an appointment to see your doctor. It's obviously been a while.

    what is making you depressed if you dont mind me asking ?

    draw a bubble spiral ,  each circle gets smaller as you draw inside the bigger one.

    write down wtf is bothering you.

    and then find out the cause of that problem.

    until you reach the main cause of your problem.
