I believe your concerns are all part and parcel of your personal growth. You have learned how to handle self doubt (always needs to be reinforced so you don't fall back) and your self esteem has increased. Everyone has periods where they feel sad, happy or otherwise, recognizing it and allowing it to be okay is normal. We are human and our emotions are part of who we are, happy or sad. Stay focused on positives. You are doing fine and will be fine.
Thank you so much for your posts again today. Yes I do learn a lot from you. I was wondering if my self esteem was increasing. I certainly feel a bit different. I don't criticise and beat myself up quite as much as I used to. There was one day when I did actually think to myself, I would have been beating myself up completely before, but I didn't. It made me stop and think "that's weird." but perhaps it was a good thing. It would have been over nothing significant as well. I just thought I'd share that with you and the fact that I do have a positive outlook about next week's event. I am so,so glad that you continue to understand and support and advise me. I am also glad that you are the person willing to help in my personal growth.
you are welcome, as always. You are also learning how to appreciate yourself for who you are. Yes, it's been a struggle at times for you but you are an excellent motivated learner, open to change and that's great. Keep up the good work. Good luck next week too!!! It's going to be a great time!!! I look forward to hearing how it goes....
