Honestly, the only person standing against you is You. If you want something do it yourself. Otherwise, prepare for the mistakes-failures and imperfections that may occur.
The minute I started getting to know myself, I knew what I was able to do. I knew where I could go and what I could reach.
As long as you’re not hurting anyone, do what it takes to make yourself happy. I have stopped trying to please everyone around me while forgetting about myself. And no this is not being
selfish, I am still considerate and there for my friends/family. It is just I have found out what is my worth.
I love myself, who I am as a person, what I became, What I have accomplished and I am proud of everything I have reached already.
All the wrong things that happened in my life the wrong people I met, the situations I have been put into were only to built myself to become the person I am today therefor I am thankful.
Stop thinking what others think of you, their thoughts are non of your business.
I have seen and heard people live on others opinions about them…. And the reason is that they don’t know their self value.
Despite peoples disapproval you should love yourself anyways.
The sooner you get to know yourself, You will know what you could possibly do in whichever field you are in and you will no longer need peoples approval about you.
I am telling you this out of experience. Take care of yourself because in the end you only got you. Remember those lonely nights you spend at night thinking, worrying, stressing and everyone around you think you’re asleep? Yes, I have been there. It is there where I started to think that I am more than what others tell me what I am. Growing mentally, spiritually and emotionally takes effort, strength and time.
Stop doubting yourself, abilities and dreams. Whatever you think you could do, go out there and work to make it happen.
