Self worth

4 Feb 2020

I last wrote back in April, about juggling motherhood and work. I was working in a charity with an incredibly unsupportive boss and I was fired from this job just before Christmas. I fought them with a solicitor up to the point that I couldn’t bear it anymore - I felt it was unfair on so many levels.

My confidence took a further knock and my self esteem was in bits, I thought about all the things I might have done wrong. I certainly wasn’t perfect, but I was good at my job, I was passionate and I made so many good things happen.

I’m now working in a temporary job, and I’m starting my recovery. This experience has pushed me to do something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I’m retraining to be a therapist. I took part in my first night class last week and it feels so right, I’m using my own experience to hopefully be a help to others.

Let’s make a pact together to stop others make us doubt our self worth and to stop them chipping away at our self esteem and confidence. We have power and we are strong, we are resilient at times - despite our experiences and our difficulties. We are deserving of love, and support, kindness and the life we want to lead.

Who’s with me?
