Knowledge leads to confidence and empowerment.  Turn down the "white noise" of the TV and radio.  Read a book.  As with any new subject, the more you learn the vocabulary and concepts, the easier it gets and the stronger you feel.
No author has all the answers and no author knows you the way we do.  So learn, enjoy, grow and ask questions!
