Your feelings of self-worth and self-esteem will greatly affect how well you will find your path. Low self-esteem and loss of identity are common after the loss of a spouse. You have invested so much of yourself into your marriage that when it ends, you may feel lost. You may have even thought; “No one will even miss me so what’s the use of getting up?” As you improve your feelings of self worth, you will be able to step out of the depression and start feeling better about yourself. You will have the courage to face your new life because you will start to believe in yourself and trust your own judgment.
