The Pain of Self-Doubt

The Pain of Self-Doubt

My heart aches, feeling as though bruised
my eyes, spilling with tears
my throat, constricted.

Was it not yesterday
that my heart felt the same ache…
but of longing
that my eyes were filled with tears…
of joy
that my throat was tight…
because my breath was taken away?
To love deeply is a joyous, beautiful thing.

For it to be overshadowed with self-doubt is painful.

  1. Re-look with fresh eyes. Does your perspective change? You’re a better person in seeing yourself as others see you. Self-doubt debilitates. Liberate. We like the Paula we’ve been shown. Just a thought to carry with you.
