I have no confidence in myself

When my husband left me his last words were 'no other man will ever want you' and they are still ringing in my head. I have not had a fulfilling relationship since.

I have a 13-year-old daughter from a brief affair which I ended before I discovered I was pregnant. Recently I finished a six-year on/off relationship with a man who was living with someone else.

I seem to get into relationships with men who don't want to commit. I have no confidence in myself as I am overweight, though I have joined a gym to get slim and fit.

Friends tell me I have a great personality and they are very supportive. What am I doing wrong?
