What to Divorce When You Are Divorcing: Lack of Confidence

Guess what?  You are stronger than you think you are.   This may come as a surprise to you but you have what it takes to do whatever needs to be done.   You may not realize it but you are smarter than you think you are.  And contrary to what you may have been told, how you may feel or what you may believe to be true there is absolutely, positively nothing wrong with you.  It is for these reasons and many, many others that you should believe in yourself — now, today and always.  Here is some advice and assurance to support you in this process.


Doubt whom you will, but never yourself.  – Christian Bovee


Self-acceptance comes from meeting life’s challenges vigorously.  Don’t numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life.  You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously.  You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.  –  J. Donald Walters


You can succeed if nobody else believes it, but you will never succeed if you don’t believe in yourself.  – William J.H. Boetcker


As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. – Johann von Goethe


They conquer who believe they can.  – John Dryden


Nobody holds a good opinion of a man who has a low opinion of himself.  – Anthony Trollope


The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you. – William Jennings Bryan


Nothing is a greater impediment to being on good terms with others than being ill at ease with yourself.  – Anthony Trollope


The confidence we have in ourselves gives birth to much of that which we have in others. – Francois de La Rochefoucauld


Never bend your head.  Hold it high.  Look the world straight in the eye.  – Helen Keller


All that Adam had, all that Caesar could, you have and can do… Build, therefore, your own world. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs.  Our faith gives us knowledge of something better: that we become oak trees.  – E.F. Schumacher
