Deep in my heart I know I am a loner. I’ve tried to blend in with the world and be sociable, but the more people I meet the more disappointed I am. So I’ve learned to enjoy myself, my family, and a few good friends.

1. In order to achieve any goal you have set, you need commit yourself whole-heartedly to it.

2. Try to be specific and identify those areas which seem to be affecting your self-confidence the most.

3. Try to identify the triggers that have caused you to feel bad, or have undermined your value. List as many as you possibly can.

4. We all start from different places, and all have different weaknesses. Change is possible for you – though it may take work and time.

5. List of all your strengths and your positive traits. If you can, get a trusted friend to help you with this.

6. Think of who you want to be, and then formulate a plan. Start by taking baby steps as this helps build confidence.

7. Notice your successes, and be proud of how you’re changing. Then use this as a springboard to develop further changes.

Working hard is important, but there is something that matters even more: believing in yourself.

Having a low opinion of yourself is not modesty. It’s self-destruction.

Some people don’t like you because your strength reminds them of their weakness. Don’t let haters slow you down.

You cannot use someone else’s fire; you can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe you have it.

Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.

Dear past, thank you for the lessons. Dear future, I am ready.

I always feel like I’m struggling to become someone else. Like I’m trying to find a new place, grab hold of a new life, a new personality. I guess it’s part of growing up; it’s also an attempt to reinvent myself.

1. Stop comparing yourself to others

2. Stop demanding and expecting perfection (from yourself and other people)

3. Practice kindness and understanding

4. Be your own best friend when you make a mistake

5. Look for things that you like about yourself and choose to take pleasure, and find joy, in them

6. Believe that you deserve to experience good things

7. Make the decision to enjoy your life, and to love what you are doing, and to believe in yourself.
