Believe In Yourself

To believe in yourself is so very important, because without it, healing your broken heart will be an uphill battle.

If you don’t truly believe you’re capable of healing, your chances of success are limited.  On the other hand, if you truly believe you CAN do it, nothing will stop you.

When it comes down to it, there’s one big obstacle that can keep you from healing your broken heart, and that is a lack of belief in yourself.

Here are four tips to build up your self-confidence:

  1. Write out 4 positive statements about yourself, read them every morning.
  2. Write out 3 small goals to finish in 30 days. Keep them small and doable.
  3. Do something positive for someone else – giving will help build your sense of worth.
  4. At night plan your next day. Never let a day go by without being kind to yourself.

Believe in yourself and learn from your grief.  History shows us that great strengths are discovered in the depths of pain.  Let your pain make you stronger, drive you to create, to be worthy of life.

I understand that the first few years can be pure hell and yet they can contain the beginnings of a new you.  It’s hard in the midst of loss to see the gleams of light, but they are there and some day you will be ready to receive them.

Take some time to Google “Helen Keller” who lived 1880 to 1968.  Helen was both blind and deaf, but she had a strong belief in herself and is an inspiration to me.

Helen Keller believed in the following:

  • Don’t let obstacles stop you.
  • Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do.
  • Have a thirst for knowledge.
  • Help Others.

    Today is one year since my Gary died. I still have trouble believing he’s really gone. The year has gone by in the blink of an eye. I was always very independent much to his dismay sometimes. Before I married him I was an Army NCO used to handling things. I never acted helpless to make him feel like “the man of the house,” but I let him “help” me with things. On Labor Day I assembled a pressure washer and pressure washed my moss covered driveway and sidewalk “like a boss!” Looks beautiful! Yesterday I pressure washed my front porch and after drying for a few days I will restain it. I fixed a light glass that had broken when a storm blew down the gutter overhanging the garage. I am learning to do “boy things”, I watch a lot of YouTube videos and get advice from my brothers-in-law. I am quite proud of myself and I know my Gary is proud of me too. :'(
