Boosting self-esteem or dealing with any mental/physical wellbeing issue takes courage. It takes courage to make steps to change your life, especially when you have to face parts of yourself that you have always hidden away.
This courage is not the kind of courage that others will notice…it’s not the same as jumping from a plane. It’s quietly making progress whilst facing your inner fears. Far, far scarier in fact. Stay courageous and keep making those steps.
