I believe in me. Think it, mutter it, say it to yourself every day, over and over again until you believe it, and start living it.
The worst thing that can happen to you is to lose faith in yourself.
Don’t ever lose faith in you, in your abilities, your purpose, your goals, don’t lose faith in your dreams. They make you, YOU. Believe in you, You are all you’ve got.
For a while, I lost faith in myself, in everything I stood for, my principles, my belief, my hobbies, even in myself as a woman.
I could no longer see any good in all I’ve ever done, in my way of living. I would ask myself what I’d ever gained or benefited in doing things the way I used to.
Everything I had ever done, I started questioning them. I no longer believed in my judgment or wisdom.
So, I decided to change my ways, I started doing things in the exact opposite of what I used to believe to be right. I thought if I were so right before, I wouldn’t end up here now.
When I was done slaughtering everything I once stood for I was left with nothing but doubts, guilts, regrets, low self esteem and depression.
I became so insufficient and needy that I couldn’t decide the right cloth to wear without consulting someone else if it is appropriate for me.
I would ask over and over again to be sure I was doing the right thing. I became so fearful of making choices for myself because I no longer believed in me. That I am capable of being myself.
I started stumbling through life, looking up to someone else for guidance, for approval, doing only the things that would make them happy and accepting.
I would in turn take whatever I get because I have made myself believe, it was what I deserved or I should be grateful to even get what’s offered.
When you lose faith in yourself and no longer believe in your potentials and purpose, you have lost everything that makes you, you. You have lost yourself.
However, you cannot afford to lose faith in yourself. Do not doubt who you were because you can’t do anything about the past, or who you are, because you need it, that is, the present, to focus on who you are going to be.
You have come this far, believe you have the strength it takes to see it through, and you will.
“I believe in me.” Say it again, and again, then go out there and be the best you are meant to be.
