We’re afraid others will see our flaws, weaknesses and insecurities. We’re afraid if others really knew us, they would reject us. We feel like fakes and frauds in a world that seems to have it all together.

1. Your grades are not a measure of your value and worth.

2. A low or failing grade doesn’t make you worthless.

3. You are valuable because you are you.

4. You don’t have to prove anything to anybody.

5. You are unique, special, and have lots to give and offer.

6. You have people in your life who love and care for you.

7. When one door closes another always opens.

8. Life is full of opportunities, of second chances, and different paths and roads.

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.

It’s better to be your genuine self, and have fewer of the right kinds of people in your life, than it is to surround yourself with those who only accept you as long as you conform to their idea of who you should be.

Don’t chase people. Be yourself, do your own thing, and love people. The right people – the ones who really belong in your life – will come to you, and stay.

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.

Love yourself enough to take the actions required for your happiness … enough to cut yourself loose from the drama-filled past … enough to set a high standard for relationships …enough to feed your mind and body in a healthy manner … enough to forgive yourself … enough to move on.

My biggest regrets in life are being too damn nice, apologizing when I didn’t do anything wrong, and making unworthy people a priority in my life.

Stay single until someone actually complements your life in a way that makes it better not to be single. If not, it’s not worth it.
