Fear and lack of confidence is like an out-of-control fire. How would you put an out-of-control fire out? With water, of course. : )
Instead of water, though, we put out fear and lack of confidence with buckets full of courage and competence. Change doesn't happen in one sudden mighty magnificent epiphany. We build up our personal resources slowly over time with one little bucket of water here and there. It builds up. Here are some suggestions that work for me:
1. Penny in the bucket. For every negative thought you have, it's like throwing away a penny of yourself. For every positive thought you have, it's like putting a penny in the "bucket" of yourself. Work hard not to throw away the pennys of yourself and work even harder at filling your bucket with as many positive thoughts about yourself as possible.
2. Build assertiveness. I strongly recommend to women that they take three or four different assertiveness training courses over a two year period. These courses are short and sweet. And they enormously redefine your confidence.
3. Read Peale's "The Power of Positive Thinking." It's classic. It's overly simple. But it works. Research shows clearly that people who read that book just once have higher self-esteem after than before AND they suffer less depression than control groups afterwards.
4. We become confident through competence. We become competent through learning and REAL experience. Make a deeply personal committment to a learning plan. Learn manual arts like knitting, welding, how to build a birdhouse. Be methodical. Familiarize yourself with, say, the ten most common hand tools and make a point to learn how to use each one. Familiarize yourself with twenty of the most fundamental recipes and learn them them WELL. MASTER them. Move on as a serious lifelong hobby of learning the most important ten to twenty elements of every manual art you can. There is great wisdom and confidence that arises from that.
5. Get focused on learning what is important, or rather, what has higher priority. Train yourself to see learning as a survival issue. So, start low on Maslow's hierarchy of needs and move up from there. Pretend that you must learn and prepare for a day when you will have to lead 2000 children on a distant planet and must build some kind of society for them before you die. Learn THAT stuff.
6. Get in top-notch health and physical conditioning. STAY that way. Don't start with gyms and classes. Design your own individual regimen. Learn Tai Chi and two martial arts. The process of learning martial arts trains your mind and character to handle obstacles and personal weaknesses more powerfully. Avoid idleness and laziness. Burn the TV forever.
7. Read the classics. Get a several lists of the "One Hundred Most Important Literary Works in History" and read them in chronological order. Give yourself a classical education. Start self-study in math. Math enhances our critical-thinking skills, makes our minds powerful. Check out from a library or neighborhood school the first three primary grades' math texbooks. Work through them just like a student. Then, do the next three grades' texbooks. Keep going . . . forever.
8. Get a good medical check-up. Numerous medical disorders need to be ruled out to be sure you aren't fighting against your own body's inbalances.
9. Journal. NOT diary. JOURNAL. In the journal, speak only of the positive, NEVER about your feelings like in a diary. Pretend this journal is all that those 2000 children on that faraway planet are going to have to remember and honor you by someday. Use real ink and a bounded noble book of rich paper. Form your thoughts carefully, one sentence at a time, before putting ink to paper. Write slowly, carefully to train your mind to slow down and focus squarely.
10. Make money. Save every penny. Do not participate in runaway consumerism. Build a financial nest egg that only YOU know about. Keep it secret always. Knowing it's there, no matter how small or how big, gives us an edge of confidence and sense of well-being that means, "I can take care of myself".
11. Grow things. Garden indoors and outdoors. Be around young children. Nurture and teach others.
12. Try new stuff, scary stuff. This is what I tried to blow the low self-esteem cobwebs from my heart and I live for it to this day: CARPE DIEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Originally Answered: Are you a hardcore pro-life Conservative saying Life is sacred? What about the death penalty?
Actually, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is strongly opposed to the death penalty and has its own campaign to abolish it (see http://www.usccb.org/sdwp/national/death... )
Many people support the death penalty because of fears that dangerous criminals will be released into their communities. However, as the number of wrongfully convicted people on death row has gone up, people are taking another look at the death penalty system. I think that for death penalty opponents (you seem to be one) the best strategy is to get out the facts.
You don't have to condone brutal crimes or want the criminals who commit them to avoid a harsh punishment to ask whether the death penalty prevents or even reduces crime and whether it risks killing innocent people.
124 people on death rows have been released with proof that they were wrongfully convicted. DNA is available in less than 10% of all homicides and isn’t a guarantee we won’t execute innocent people.
The death penalty doesn't prevent others from committing murder. No reputable study shows the death penalty to be a deterrent. To be a deterrent a punishment must be sure and swift. The death penalty is neither. Homicide rates are higher in states and regions that have it than in states that don’t.
We have a good alternative. Life without parole is now on the books in 48 states. It means what it says. It is sure and swift and rarely appealed. Life without parole is less expensive than the death penalty.
The death penalty costs much more than life in prison, mostly because of the legal process which is supposed to prevent executions of innocent people.
The death penalty isn't reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn't apply to people with money. When is the last time a wealthy person was on death row, let alone executed?
The death penalty doesn't necessarily help families of murder victims. Murder victim family members across the country argue that the drawn-out death penalty process is painful for them and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative.
Problems with speeding up the process. Over 50 of the innocent people released from death row had already served over a decade. If the process is speeded up we are sure to execute an innocent person.
I imagine it vary from person to person, as would the defintion of 'best life possible'.
I like booze & porn. Fortunately both are fairly easy to come by. I guess you could say that either a lack of money to afford them gets in the way sometimes.
Also, my wife gets in the way too. She doesn't like me to get drunk while she is at work, and she says I spend way too much money on porn. (I really don't, maybe $100/month).
Sometimes I need to go over to a friends house to drink, or check out whats on the Spice channel. But that's not really and obsticle, more of a solution.
To answer your second question. The best way to get over your fears is just to do it. Sure, sometime's I'm 'afraid' to goto the porno shop and buy some raunchy video, it can be embarassing. But after doing it for a few times, that fear goes away. Now the clerk tells me about the new imported videos from Romania.
Just have a positive attitude, it will all work out.

Well at this point in time is my living status, if I wasn't stuck I could could be living completely free of things that draw me back, but I still don't let that get in the way of my growing knowledge that completely makes me happy, I am surrounded by people who make me smarter and form who I really am. I will be were I am superposed to be very soon and that will open my horizon's.

Attitude, gets in the way a lot. "A person is just as happy as they make up their minds to be" - Abraham Lincoln
Just believe in yourself, you CAN succeed.

Originally Answered: How is life at BMT in the Air Force? How is everyday life as a girl in BMT??
I think that life as a girl is about the same as life as a guy: miserable. Be prepared for not enough sleep, not enough food, and being yelled at, a lot. However, it is mostly a mind game, and not really personal. I have a very perverse sense of humor and found a lot of things funny, and didn't mind it all very much.
One thing for sure, have your family send you mostly postcards at first. Sometimes in the beginning your TI might not allow you to open the mail that you receive and OMG those letters look so good.. but on postcards, they can't help that you see what is being said. I wouldn't risk writing letters until you're allowed though. One guy in my brother flight wrote a mushy love letter to his girlfriend and their TI found it and she read it out loud and teased him about it for awhile.
Another thing, you can use your lint rollers on the ground in the latrine to help clean up all the dust. Your TI will turn the lights off and use a flashlight to look for stuff, so running a lint roller over it all helped a lot.
Usually within a day or two of you getting there jobs are handed out to everyone in your flight. There is no hiding, no matter what your recruiter says. The longer you keep quiet, the crappier job you will end up with. I was a chow runner, which I really don't recommend unless you don't mind being yelled at by 8+ TI's three times a day. Laundry crew seemed like a good one, because you get to hang out downstairs right near the phones and candy machines. I wouldn't try to sneak anything for awhile, but when other flights are using the patio you could hand them money if you really really really needed some candy.
Another thing, bring some cash with you for the dry cleaners and stuff. You have to write down the serial numbers of all your money and keep it inside your locker -- i didn't want to so i kept most of mine in my bra... :)
Use Qtips to clean out the top of your shampoo bottles.
I hated my flight because everybody was whining at each other all the time, but I've since been told that thats how it is for just about every female flight. The girls b**tch at each other and cry alot, so just expect it. After a few weeks you somehow, magically bond, and then by the end you might even tear up about leaving them. I still talk to a bunch of people in my flight and also my brother flight constantly.
All it takes to pass is being stubborn. It's not really that hard, but they do put you in difficult places emotionally, and its tough when you're hungry and tired and homesick and lonely too. Keep in mind that
A. The easiest way to get done with all the BS is to graduate on schedule and also
B. The real AF is nothingnothingnothingNOTHING like basic training.
