So many times, other people who don’t understand they haven’t been through it, they aren’t the best people to give us advice especially, unsolicited advice, but people will say these things, so we sort of need to learn how to respond to these people. Confidence comes from within, so we know what the facts are. We know that it might be true that egg quality starts reducing after a certain age, that is a fact, but we also know that there is a certain percentage that it might still be possible to have to have a baby with your own eggs or maybe to have a baby with donor eggs. I would invite you to develop this realistic thinking, to notice that it might be true, all of those things that people are saying, but maybe their brain is not telling them that other part that all the reasons why it might work. I think it’s hard to even for ourselves, and it might be even harder for other people to come up with that. I usually think that other people’s comments come out of a place of love and wanting to help even when they’re not helpful at all, and they are very upsetting, but most people do want to help. I want us to take charge of our confidence, and even though they might say okay, it’s hard to get pregnant at your age why don’t you just enjoy life without children, it’s not that easy, but we need to find a way of having confidence that is absolute in what I want, absolute confidence, absolute certainty in what I want to achieve in life.
There are indeed some challenges, but there are also some possibilities as well, and as long as I’m aware of that, as long as I have realistic thinking, I have absolute certainty in what I want to achieve. I know it can be hard, but if you do those six steps, and I’m not going to say that you’re not going to get upset by what people say, we all do get upset from time to time, it never goes away, but it’s like a muscle that we train, so we build our self-confidence, our absolute certainty in what we want to get out of life. So, when they do say those things, we almost have a shield that protects us, and that is our confidence.
