Once upon a time there was a lovely young woman, who set out in life with a fairly confident outlook. As time went on, life happened: she had a beautiful baby, got made redundant, lost someone she cared about and gradually her confidence ebbed away.
She didn't notice a sudden change, but her confidence levels dipped down, further and further until suddenly she realised she just wasn't her old self anymore.
Eventually she got to the point where she just didn't want to be that way any more. Trouble was, she didn't really know what she wanted instead, or how to get it and certainly didn't feel like she could do it all by herself.
