I have helped and am helping people cope with loss, divorce, anguish and parenting. Depression is also a major issue that comes up.

You don't have to prove yourself to others! You really only ever have to prove yourself to you. You are the most important person in your life, and you only have to take care of yourself, at the end of the day there is no opinion that should matter in your life other than your own. Society always puts pressure on us to prove ourselves to others, but you just have to avoid giving into those pressures in favor of taking care of yourself, and doing what makes you the happiest. tl;dr, you don't have to prove yourself to anyone.
