Music has life. That’s why our heart has beats.

You are going to want to give up. Don’t.

1. Recognize that most people feel that way at times – even if they hide it well, and they look quite confident.

2. Pay attention to your selftalk. Don’t criticize yourself. Be kind and understanding, and gentle with yourself.

3. Try to locate the source of your feelings. Is it because you are in a new situation and don’t know what is expected of you? Is it because you’re naturally introverted and shy? Is it because you’ve been bullied or made fun of it the past? Is it because you feel you don’t belong, or haven’t been accepted by the people you are with?

4. Attack and address the source of those negative feelings. Work on accepting, valuing and thinking well of yourself. Also, making small talk, being friendly and chatting naturally are skills that you can work on and master over time.

5. Expect things to go well, and focus hard on being relaxed.

6. Try to act confident (ignore the way you feel). You’ll find that you feel better, less anxious and afraid.

Never have I dealt with anything as difficult as my own soul.

If you want to be strong, enjoy being alone.

1. Don’t take criticism personally. Instead, realize that criticism says more about them than it does about you.

2. Distinguish between facts and subjectivity. Most criticisms are just personal opinions. They are not objective and they don’t reflect the truth.

3. Look at the beliefs you hold about yourself. Do you feel defensive and under attack because you don’t believe in yourself?

4. Learn what you can from any comments that are made – and discard the rest as being useless information.

5. Decide not to ruminate on barbs or criticisms – as that will reinforce the message in your brain.

6. Choose to spend more time with people who’re affirming – and minimise the time spent with those who put you down.

7. Look for a role model who can handle criticism – and try to copy them, so you become more thick skinned, too.

Go where you are celebrated – not tolerated. If they can’t see your true value and worth, then it’s time for a new start.

A woman is unstoppable after she realizes she deserves better.

There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.

1. Take care of your physical health as this affects your mental health.

2. Take time-out and give yourself some space. You need to get away from the busyness.

3. Invest time in hobbies and doing things you love. These help you to switch off and get in touch with yourself.

4. Develop an attitude of gratitude as that can help remind you of some good things in your life.

5. If you can, try to stay o top of the mess as a tidy room can help you to feel less stressed.

6. Have at least one friend you can turn to when you’re down, as we all need someone who we know is there for us,

7. Avoid toxic people who leave you feeling bad. You have a right to establish healthy boundaries.
