As widows, to build our self-esteem we need to overcome our fears. Every time we overcome a new challenge it gives us even more confidence and if there is anything we need more of its confidence in ourselves.
Our future is no longer a shared journey and it can be fearful going alone on our own. But please don’t let fear stop you from living a full life.
Fear is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. Don’t fear failing – you fail only if you don’t try. You have something worth sharing in this world. Every widow has special gifts and talents, but not everyone overcomes their fears to find their gifts. Don’t let your fears keep you stuck where you are. The reality is 95% of our fears will never come to be.
Just by living in the “present” way of life, you’ve already eliminated a high percentage of worry about a future that can lead to fear of the unknown. Setbacks just show what changes need to be made to bring you one step closer to what you want.
You can go for it. As self-esteem builds up – fear breaks down.
