😥😌this is how i’m working through doubt
i consider myself to be confident in who i am and genuinely feel grateful for my life, but doubt still pops up when👉🏽 i’m worried if something is going to work out and if i really have what it takes to live up to my dreams and keep myself there.
a few years ago i didn’t believe these 2 things could exist simultaneously, but i’ve dumped that shame and recognized that, yes, you can be self-confident and still feel doubt.
👇🏽here’s how i’m handling it.
first, i looked at my situation to understand where this is coming from. i’m in a major moment of true uncertainty.
🔹i just quit my steady paycheck earning 16-year career to be a full-time entrepreneur.
🔹the health and future of my biz rests solely on my shoulders.
🔹i’m in the process of shifting my brand message and creating a new offer that i adore and think brings value, but it’ll take customer testing to get honest feedback.
this doubt is real, and no amount of 🌟self-confidence and 🌟feeling soul-guided can completely ❌eliminate moments like this.
🌟but here’s how those 2 things do help me through it: i’m my own best friend and talk to myself with so much compassion. who better to bring me comfort than the person who knows me best?
i’m like: “tasheena, you’re going through so much change, leaving comfort zones to go after your dreams of helping women just like you, stepping into the spotlight and letting it all be seen. that’s big stuff! cry it out, girl. release the pressure by feeling it all. this doesn’t mean you don’t believe in yourself, it means you care, that this truly matters to you! this is only a moment of doubt, not a lifetime of it. do the best you can right now and possibilities will come to light along the way. your faith is being tested, but there’s value in this moment and new energy just around the corner. you are loved.”
doubt is going to come, it’s just part of being human. but you can love yourself through it and choose kindness and compassion to lift you out of it.
💖are you to being compassionate to yourself through these challenging times in life?
