Journey towards self belief

Hi all,I thought I would start my blog on my journey towards better self belief which I think I'm badly needing.

I managed to go back to my counselling course on Saturday despite feeling massively anxious over what happened last saturday. I think it may take me a while to feel comfortable with the course tutor as she made no apologies for her behaviour.

I've now changed my own counselling from Friday to Wednesday as going to counselling the day before the course was just too much for me.

I've also decided to go back to slimming world as I have put a stone back on since leaving there. I know I need to do something now otherwise I will end up back where I was and I really do not want to go there.

I'm going to start doing progressive relaxation in order to get a hold on my anxiety which is the main thing I'm suffering with at the moment.

Knowing you guys are there for me is a huge help and I hope I can inspire some of you too.

Ali xx

Hope this goes well for you. My sister has battled with depression for years. She has low self esteem too. Although your weight may be a concern to you, trying to do too many things at once may be too much for you. I wish you well, you can do it. My sister was told that depression can't always be cured, but you can learn to live with it with support.Relaxation is a great idea, I have a load of relaxation cd's and they do help.When you feel anxious, replace it with something you do like, it really does work. Good luck and keep us all posted. Hugs x


Well done. You are a brave, strong woman, and deserve to succeed at all you are doing. Remember to be kind to yourself, and sadly, the journey to success is rarely a straight line! Sometimes you have to keep your eyes fixed on the goal, sometimes you have to look back at where you started to see how far you've already come.

Good luck with it all.




We are all here for you TM at all times and we are so proud of you and all the positive steps you are taking!

Well done and here's a hug for you! (((hug))) xxx
