How does depression affect confidence?

For the past year and a half, my confidence has been decreasing. I think that this could be because I'm depressed. Does depression often affect a person's confidence?

If this is so, are you getting treatment for your depression? If you’re not, then you should. Once your depression is in remission and you still have self-esteem and self-confidence issues, then you need to see a therapist to address this, and likely they are 2 separate entities. If your depression is in remission after treatment and you find you have gained your confidence back, then you have your answer - the depression caused your diminishing self-confidence.
