I really lack confidence and unable to do some of the work when I go to Monday to Friday jobs like admin etc. It's what I really enjoy but gutted I've failed in them.

Sorry not believing in myself
You’ve got a job though, haven’t you?
How have you failed them? Did you get training, e-learning etc?
Question Author
Yeah but not what I want to do. Some training but they thought I had more experience than I have or inpatient
What are you doing now and what do you want to do?
What job would you like to do?
Question Author
Receptionist or administrator
What do you do now, abbey?
Question Author
Mcds
Why did some employers think you are more experienced than you actually are?
How many hours do you work at Mcds? If part time, you could online admin training in your spare time.
You say you’ve failed in the sort of jobs you want. What happened?

Like got rid of me after 3 days saying I wasn't grasping on to excel and they were behind but said you don't need experience but one just didn't know I had no experience.
Failure is a learning experience. You’ve seen and done things that have taught you what to avoid. Go forward, believe in yourself. You can be much more than you are allowing yourself.
They probably meant experience in that particular type of work. Would you consider doing a computer course to get a qualification so you have something solid under your belt?
Being let go just days after starting can't be good for your confidence. If you were to do a course or get qualifications, that would go far in boosting your confidence.
I just checked. There are free courses to be had, including from employment agencies and educational institutions. Google ‘free computer courses’, abbey, and have a look. Let’s get your confidence buzzing!
abbey'''; Could you perhaps explain dyspraxia? How does it affect you?
