Girlfriend dumped me and shattered my confidence into tiny little pieces.
So I went out got a new job, i am about start a long term career. Which restored a tiny bit of my pride and self esteem but it is not enough. Im still feel like an empty shell of my former self.
In what ways did you people get your self confidence back?

It takes time.. that's a great first step though. Maybe start working out if you don't already? Once you start seeing progress its addicting lol and it's a great way to feel good about yourself.3

Remembering who you are and start realizing you're enough. In a long term relationship, you can begin to forget who you are as an individual. What your hobbies were, what your likes were. Things you did for yourself because it's what you wanted for yourself, without regard to whether or not it would get you girls or because your girlfriend wanted it. Basically, just get back to living again and finding your "soul" which is what any girl you've been with in the past was attracted to in the start.
You feel like a shell of a person, because you used her or simply having a girlfriend or the relationship itself to define who you were. And now that it's gone you feel like you've lost your identity. Gonna drop some Lion King knowledge on you.
