Tips on regaining your confidence after being on a horrible account?

This might be too lofty but I found doing something out of your comfort zone helped me regain some confidence and spark. When I got off a shit pharma account I started training for a triathlon and it gave me motivation while helping me develop some new kind of skill. Not a professional aide but I always find it helpful to remember that you have the capability to defy expectations.

I think it just gets better with time and the farther you are from that bad account. I was anxious and shakey after starting a new job after being on the worst account under an almost abusive manager. I apologized over everything, even when unnecessary, and was psyching myself out. It just took time to realize that these weren't the same people and I wasn't being treated the same way. In small increments, I started having opinions on things again, and started believing that they were good opinions. You begin to start taking risks and engaging with people again. It's the small steps that builds the trust with coworkers to allow you take bigger leaps down the road.

Remember it's not you, but the account that sucked.

Felt beat down after leaving my previous account and I'm now at another agency on a different account. My confidence now wavers, and I even doubt myself about things I know I'm good at.

@OP, are you me?! I was really nervous before starting at my new job (not mindshare) and what helped me a little bit was reminding myself that I wasn't the problem on my old team - my old team was rotten. Take a leap of faith and trust yourself. If you were good "once", you still are ☺️

I'm in a similar boat, and have started to read some books on boosting confidence, such as The Confidence Code. Not sure if this will help contribute to me gaining confidence again, but we'll see! I'm hoping that plus time plus a new company/account will start to build me up again.

Thanks, all. It's encouraging to read these.
