Divorce is often messy, difficult and can take a toll on not only your emotional, but also your physical well-being. Some women struggle with feeling secure and confident post divorce. When your identity has been linked with your spouse for so long, it can be hard to navigate who you are apart from that person.


Confidence is a key element of internal well-being and happiness. When you feel confident, you attract opportunity into your life.


Social Psychologist and Florida State Professor Roy Baumeister found that in a large-scale study done with 31,000 college students from 49 universities, 31 countries, and five continents,  high self-esteem was the most important factor for predicting overall life satisfaction. 


Self-esteem predicts happiness!


So how do you gain confidence? Here are five helpful ways from Personal Development Expert Tracy Kennedy.

  1. Identify where you would like more confidence.
  2. Uncover what gives you confidence. Think about the times when you felt most confident.  This will help you understand what fuels your self-esteem.
  3. Be true to you.  The more you understand who you are and what you value, the stronger you will be.
  4. Acknowledge your talents, skills and success. At the end of each day, write down the 3 things you did well, felt good about, or were proud of yourself for.
  5. Just do it. Action builds confidence and every step you take, however small, will build it further.
