- Dealing with Self-doubt in mathematics in general situation.

Dear Everyone,

I am wondering how to deal with the self-doubt in proof-writing in general situation like on exam or homework question.

Suppose I want to prove Theorem B. I assume the hypothesis. Then I apply the right mathematics definition. I am hesitant on the next step; I have the feeling that I can use Theorem A. But I can't explain why I can. What to do?

Thanks,
