"What other people think of you is not your business. If you start to make that business your business, you will be offended for the rest of your life."
We are human beings; naturally, we need to be liked by others. Often we care so much about what other people think about us. Growing up, we have learned to follow the standard or the norm that our society has created.
We always do the things we are supposed to do, which makes us forget to follow our hearts. We have a dream, but we don't dare to chase it because we fear failure. We fear how other people will judge or think about us.
And we even try to please others to make them approve or like us. We act like these because we have learned that we have to get approval from others, making us feel we fit in. We live up to other's expectations.
I was the one who tried to be a people pleaser because I wanted approval and like. I used to live up to other's expectations that included my family's. Until one day, I have realized that living that way will not make me happy.
I don't have to worry about what others will think about me because it isn't my business, but it is their business. And I have only one life, why don't I live and spend it the way I want? And what others think of me does not matter, but what I think about myself does matter!

You are given one life, and how you will spend it; it's up to you. We can't refuse that most of the time in our life, we have to follow whatever others do or think that we consider it will be the things that most people are supposed to do.
We have learned to follow social norms, and if we don't obey these rules, we will not fit in. And we think whoever does not fit in will be judged by others.
We do care so much about what others will think about us! And we always seek approval and validation from others. Living this way won't make us happy because we do not follow our truth.
Trying to please others and trying to fit in somewhere you do not belong will not make you any better. But what will make you better is being you, follow your passion, and follow your truth.
Even though it may seem hard to start, the more you spend time to know yourself, the more you will finally connect with your inner and find your truth.
When you no longer care about what others think or talk about you. You will no longer seek approval and validation. Because you know you are the one who knows most about you.
"Don't let people make you feel bad or guilty for living your life. It's your life. Live it the way you want.

"Become so confident in who you are that no one's opinion, rejection, or behavior can rock you."
This quote hits me hard. I believe confidence in ourselves is vital because it will lead us to any opportunity in our lives.
When we are confident in ourselves, we will believe in ourselves because we see our worth, so we don't look for anyone to approve or validate us.
Being confident doesn't mean that we see ourselves better than others or are superior, but we don't compare ourselves to others.
We have confidence because we know who we are, and it doesn't matter if others don't like us. Or they may even judge us!
Being confident in yourself, you don't need to be a very successful or high profile person. And there is nothing to do with external factors, but it is something you see yourself from within.

If you love yourself and know your worth, you will get through any situation. Because when you acknowledge your self-worth and love yourself enough, you will stop seeking love and validation from others.
You know that your love is from within, and you don't rely on others to love you. You don't need to find others to tell you that you are worthy.
When you love yourself enough, you will not let yourself suffer so long or allow yourself to be with someone who doesn't deserve you.
You know that your happiness is from within, and you are the one who is responsible for it, not others. If something makes you unhappy, you navigate why and remove yourself from that situation. Likewise, if something makes you happy, you pay attention and gravitate toward it.
Everything starts with your feeling about yourself.
"Self-worth is so vital to your happiness. If you don't feel good about you, it's hard to feel good about anything else."

We perpetually struggle to find our goal in life, but we feel lost and empty inside.
We tend to forget that we don't have to get everything we want, then we can be happy because happiness is from within, not from outside. It's all about contentment and appreciation.
If we measure our success(destination)by comparing our life to others, we will never achieve it because there will always be someone else that is richer and smarter than us.
Instead, if we base our success on our contentment, we can live happily every day. Being contentment doesn't mean we stop developing or complacent, but that because we choose to be happy with what we already have while working toward our goal.
We can enjoy any experience during the journey because every moment in our life is so precious that we want to live to the fullest.
It's not about the destination, but it's about the journey.
"Sometimes, we become so focused on the finish line that we fail to find joy in the journey."
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I believe that we all have been sent to live on this planet for a specific purpose; we all have our missions to accomplish. That's why our souls were put on this earth to be.
When we are young, we have an intuitive understanding of who we are and how we do things. But as we grow older, we stop listening to our inner voice, and instead, we do what others tell us to do.
We go to school and college to get a degree that we believe will help us find a good-paying job or work for a prestigious company. We do the things that we are supposed to do. But often we feel like something is missing.
I used to be the one who followed the path that I thought I was supposed to do. I just did anything that I had been told to do. I went to school, University, found the job, and worked with a prestigious company.
As time went by, I found myself wondering if it really what I want in my life? I thought I am more than my job. I can do something phenomenal, I have something to offer, and I can make a difference.
However, I was distracted by people I surrounded; I let their opinions and judgments influence me. So I didn't want to change because I didn't want to face the failures. I thought if I failed, they would judge me. I let the noise of others' opinions drown out my inner voice.
There comes a time when I have realized I have to stop living my life based on others think of me and start living for myself. I stop judging myself for others, and it doesn't matter what they think about me. What matters is what I think about myself.
I have decided to follow my heart, inner voice, and let them lead me to pursue my goal. When I discover my purpose in life, I feel my life has meaning and fulfilled. I no longer need to be filled from the outside or seek approval and validation from others.
"When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self-acceptance opened."
-Shannon L. Alder.

"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."
I stumble on this quote that reminds me of myself in the past. I used to let the circumstances affect me; I thought whatever happened to me would block me from moving forward.
I thought I would get stuck in that situation forever. I felt my heart would never heal, and I would never get out of that impossible struggle.
I even beat up and blamed myself for whatever happened. I had been dwelling on the negativities and focusing on problems. I had let myself wallow in self-pity too long.
And there comes a time in my life when I have realized that I have to do something for myself. If I don't love and don't see my self-worth, no one will.
Everyone makes mistakes; we all must go through hard times in life, and it doesn't matter if we will get knocked down, but what counts is we have to get up.
Our present circumstances don't define our future and ourselves; it's just a starting point. And the best is yet to come.
Friday, September 4, 2020
I used to be the one who follows the social norms, the way I thought I was supposed to do to fit into it. Even though I had my dream, I should give up if it wasn't how most people would.
Most people will go to school to get some degree, and that will be the path to access the prestigious companies that will give them the good-paying, stable jobs or the jobs that will secure their futures.
Those beliefs are the principles or the norms that we all have learned from generation to generation. And there is nothing wrong if we follow them, but those beliefs only make us ordinary people.
The ordinary people who work from 8 to 5 and never feel satisfied or fulfilled; they are always busy all day but still feel something is missing. And often, they doubt themselves about the way they live their lives. If it is the way they want to be.
Back to the story about myself, I have been finding myself for my whole life. I have always asked myself: who am I?what is my life purpose?And what can I help to make the world a better place? I have been telling myself that I can be someone who can make a difference in the world.
I am more than my past, background, current job, emotions, feeling, etc. I have started discovering myself from the inside by spending time alone to contemplate what I want in my life, and most importantly, what I do that will make me happy and fulfilled.
The more I spend time being with myself, the more I learn about who I am, the more I love myself. And I am so happy that I finally have found myself. Now I know that being an inspirational blogger, author, and speaker are my passions.
Those are the things that make me feel that my life has meaning and purpose. Even though I am still far away from where I want to be, I believe somehow I will make it!
"Find out who you are and be that person. That's what your soul was put on this earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come".

As we are human beings, we all struggle to find our goal. We want to succeed and be accepted. We try our best to fit in with our social norms. And often, we compare ourselves to others.
We tend to forget what we have done, but instead, we focus on how far we can go. We forget to appreciate ourselves for the hard work we have done. We blame, criticize, and beat ourselves up when we make mistakes.
Living this way, we will lose our joy and happiness; life is short; we don't have to be perfect. We make mistakes, and we learn. We don't have to wait until we have everything, then we can be happy. But we can be happy now, despite we are not perfect, yet we make mistakes.
"Nobody is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. But some mistakes will teach you great lessons and make you a better person."

Respect yourself enough to say,"I deserve better."
This quote reminds me of my old self. In the past, I had been struggling to let go of someone who didn't deserve my love, tears, attention, time, energy, etc.
When you truly love someone, you will lose yourself. You will give your all to that person and even think you can't live without him. It would be great if the person you love treated you the way you treated him. But if he didn't treat you like you treated him, you should better move on.
Letting go of someone and moving on is not easy, especially when you are genuinely in love with him. It is like myself in the past that I allowed someone to stay in my life longer than he deserved. I tried to hold on to him because I thought I didn't want to lose him. I thought I couldn't live without him.
And the more I tried to hold on to him, the more I was hurt. Often, I cried myself to sleep. I even felt like it was the end of the world. I had let myself wallow in self-pity for months until there came a time when I realized that I am more than my pains and my feelings; I am worthy, and I deserve better.
When you acknowledge your worth, you love yourself enough; you respect yourself and won't let yourself stay in a relationship that does not serve you. You won't settle for anything less than you deserve.

You have only one life; it is up to you how you will spend it. Growing up, you are taught to follow the standard that everyone knows that it is the way you are supposed to do.
That standard is you must go to school to have a degree to find a job that pays you better or get hired by the top or best company.
Often, you don't know what you really want in your life that may be because you still can't make it clear between what you want to become and who you really are. You have been adapted to the standard of your society for how you should live your life.
You try your best to fit in the social norms, which makes you forget about who you really are. Your everyday life is like an automatic mode since you wake up until you sleep. So many times, you find yourself wondering how far you can go? What you really want in life?
And so often you ponder your life; you feel like you still have something to be fulfilled. You are more than what you are doing. And you want to be the change you wish to see in the world. You want to make a difference.
Maybe it's time for you to find out who you really are. It's time for you to live your life the way you want to live and be the person you really are.
"It's your life. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for living it your way."

Waking up in the morning is a blessing; you should not take it for granted, but you should be thankful that you wake up. You have another chance to live your life, fulfill your dream, be with your loved ones, etc.
Your time is precious, and it is running out! Don't waste it on reliving your painful past; you can't undo what happened, and dwelling on it doesn't help anything. Remember, every morning you wake up is the first day of the rest of your life; the clock never stops running.
It's your decision whether you choose to master your time and make everyday count or waste it; it is up to you.
"Don't start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our life."
Friday, July 24, 2020
We have only one life, and our time is running out; one day, one hour, one minute will not come again, so make every moment to be perfect and memorable.
Although life is not always easy, it's always beautiful. Every day may not be good, but there is always something good in every day.
Be thankful that you are still alive because there are people somewhere in the world who are still struggling to survive. Waking up to see another day is a blessing.
Be thankful that you still have a chance to live, to chase your dream, to explore the world, and to love and be loved. So, make every day count and live on purpose. Make a difference, and most of all be happy.
"Life is beautiful. Live every moment and be happy."

We can't choose where we want to be born, but we can choose what we want to be. And we can decide where we want to go because we know that we can create our destiny.
Even though we are still far from being what we want to be, it doesn't mean we can't be. We know that there are still many challenges in life that we must face.
We know that life is not easy. We know that we can't sit and wait for the opportunity, but we must look for it.
It doesn't matter how hard the obstacles are, but what matters is how we perceive them.
"Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle."

No one never cries. it's okay to cry, even the sky; sometimes, it cries. We all know that after the rain, there will be a bright and beautiful sky.
Everybody used to cry, even strong people. Crying doesn't mean you are weak. But it means you are human. It's okay if sometimes you will have a meltdown.
Just don't let yourself suffer so long. Pick yourself up, let go of the pains, and carry on. And never allow yourself to cry for the same reason again.
"Sometimes the strongest people in the morning are the people who cried all night.

When you love yourself, you know your worth; you won't seek the other's approval because you don't care what other people think of you, but what you think about yourself matters more than what others think about you.
When you love yourself, you know that happiness is from within; you are no longer rely on others to make you happy, and the circumstances can't affect you either.
When you love yourself, you start looking inside yourself; then, your vision will become clear. When you can look inside your own heart, you know what you want, you begin to live a more meaningful life.
When you love yourself, you know how to make yourself happy, and you no longer seek happiness from the external. You are not desperate for being filled from the outside; you begin to take care of yourself that makes you look good and feel good, and you start to attract better things and better people.
Your life starts to change. Everything begins with you and how you feel about yourself.
"Everything changes when you begin to love yourself. You no longer send out energy of desperation or need to be filled from the outside.
You become a powerful source within yourself that attracts better. The more you love yourself the less you seek validation and approval."
Monday, June 22, 2020
Love yourself enough to let go of someone who doesn't care about you. When you love someone with your whole heart, you can do anything to maintain your relationship.
You give him all you've. However, if it still not enough. Maybe it's time to move on to someone or something better.
Stop chasing him and start loving yourself. When you start taking care of yourself, you will begin to attract someone or something better.
"If you don't love yourself, you will always be chasing after people who don't love you either.

In our life, there is nothing more important than to live happily.
Everyone wants to be happy; however, most of us forget that our happiness is from within.We continuously allow external factors to affect us.
We often try to control people and situations, and when they don't turn out as we expected, we get upset. On the opposite, when things go our way, we feel so happy. Indeed, it is natural; we are human beings when we get what we want we are so glad, but when we don't get what we want we are disappointed!
But in real life, there are a few chances that things will go our way, we can't control everything, and if we are dependent on our circumstances, our joy will be lost.
What if we change our approach to life by challenging ourselves to control how we react to uncontrollable things instead of trying to control them or let them affect us.
"When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what's happening. That's where your power is.

Life is not easy, we all have been through a lot. We made mistakes, or someone we loved betrayed us. Many things hurt and disappointed us because things didn't go our way.
As we look back on those hurts, scars, and bruises, we wish we could go back and fix them. So many times, we kept blaming ourselves for the mistakes.
Dwelling on the past, it's just like we let the darkness from the past block the light of joy in today and it does not make things better. Past is past; we can't change or undo it, but what we can do it to start from where we are and make our today better!
"Life doesn't allow us to go back and fix what we have done wrong in the past, but it does allow us to live each day better than our last."
Friday, June 12, 2020
We may experience unexpected events that don't turn out to be as we have planned in our lives.
We were disappointed that we didn't get what we wanted, or someone we love hurt us.
So often that we waste our time dwelling on the past that prevents us from enjoying our present moment. We tend to forget that past is past, it can't be changed or undone.
Sometimes we find ourselves doubting how far we can go, and when we compare our lives to others, it discourages us because we focus on the wrong things.
What if we change our perspective? By start focusing on what we have, and it doesn't matter how far we can go, but what matters is how far we have come.
When we focus on what we have, we appreciate life; we learn to live for today and make the most of it. And believe that something good is about to happen.
To be happy, you must:
Let go of what has gone, be grateful for what remains, and look forward to what is coming next.
Sunday, May 31, 2020
If you want to start doing something but you still doubt yourself, and you are not sure about the decision you have made. Just remember this:
Life is a journey; not a destination. It's about what we experience, who we meet along the way.
Most of all, bad experiences give us lessons to learn, good experiences give us good memories.
Life is not always easy and smooth. We may fall, we may stumble, but we have to keep picking ourselves back up. Then keep moving forward, and never give up!
" I don't know where this journey will lead, but I know it will be exciting and filled with adventure."

As I am getting older, I have just realized that I enjoy spending time alone. Whenever I have my free time, I will be with myself rather than go out with my friends. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean I don't like to be with other people, but recently I just love to be with myself.
When I have more time for myself, I come to know what I really want in my life. We live in an era of social media, every day since we wake up until we go to bed, we are bombarded by information. We are so obsessed with social media, we are curious to know what other people are doing, and we also want to let the world know what we are doing.
I used to enjoy spending time on social media, but recently. I have learned that the more I spend time on it, the less I am happy because there is so much information to consume that I can't manage myself to stop reading. And by the time I realize that I should stop reading, I find myself wasting too much time without doing anything productive!
So now I have known that spending more time with myself, it really makes me happier. I enjoy reading tons of books and never get tired of them. Sometimes I go outside walking along the beach, enjoy seeing the waves, flowers, birds, etc. The more I spend time with myself, the more I stay connected with it, and when I choose to focus on the inside, I tend to be less frustrated and less be affected by the circumstances.
" Spend more time with yourself; you will like who you are.
Sunday, May 17, 2020
Every morning we wake up, the first thing we should do is to think positively because our positive thoughts will lead us in the right direction.
Instead of thinking about what we don't have, focus on what we have and be thankful. Good health, lovely family, good friends, etc.
If we have a dream, and we keep waiting until we have a perfect time or until we are ready, we probably will be waiting for the rest of our lives.
Now is the time to start to create the life we want with what we have!
"Now is no time to think of what you don't have. Think of what you can do with what there is.
Sunday, May 10, 2020
Every morning brings new hope, new opportunities that are waiting for us to discover! So, when we wake up, the first thing we should do is to create a positive mindset that will make us feel super positive for the day.
We need to have a can-do attitude and believe that whatever happens today, we can handle it!
It's not useful to think about the past because we can't undo what happened, but what we can do is to live in the present and make today our best day ever.
"Another new day, one more new hope, one more new step. Live for what today has to offer, not what yesterday has taken away. "

We do our best as we can to reach our goal, but often we feel like we still have a long way to go; we find ourselves doubting how far we can go.
We dwell on negative thoughts and keep blaming ourselves for making mistakes or making poor decisions about something.
We tend to forget that everyone makes mistakes, nobody perfect; we make mistakes, and we have learned from them.
When others make mistakes, we forgive them, but we are so hard on ourselves when we make mistakes.
If we don't love ourselves, no one will love us. We should be kind to ourselves and be proud of every step we take toward reaching our goal.
"Don't be too hard on yourself. There are plenty of people willing to do that for you. Love yourself and be proud of everything you do. Even mistakes mean you are trying."
Friday, April 10, 2020
When you wake up in the morning, you may think your life is so dull, or you may feel discouraged because things don't go your way. You may even think sometimes you barely get through the day.
Because of obstacles, you have faced draining your energy, and you can't find any reason that will make you want to jump out of bed.
Maybe you need to change your perspectives; changing perspectives is like changing the window through which you view the world, and it is not something that you can change overnight, but it doesn't mean you can't do it.
To change your perspective, you need to change the way you see things. You need to change your thoughts, your attitude. What if you wake up every morning with the feeling of appreciation, gratitude for the things you have, and be thankful for being alive.
Be grateful for having a family that loves you, a few good friends, a job, a roof over your head, and food on the table while there are many people somewhere else in the world who are still fighting to survive. They don't have a place to live, food to eat, some people don't even know how to manage to live each day because they have nowhere to go. Some people have to escape from being shot!
Thinking about those struggling people may help you feel better about your life. And I am sure those unfortunate people they want to live the life you are living now.
Life is too short to think about things that make you feel bad, so change your thoughts, attitude toward things, if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
When you change the way you see the world, and you try to search only for the goodness in life, then your life transforms into a fantastic adventure.
"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it, if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

In our life, we can't avoid facing difficulties; it is a natural part of the cycle of life. No one always has a smooth life; we all have had experienced challenges. But what makes the difference is our attitude toward the challenges and the way we react to them.
There comes a time in your life when you have to go through hard times and it depends on you whether you will let it strengthen you or let it destroy you.
Sometimes you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. And often that the difficulties you face make you learn how to appreciate life and understand what it means to persevere, overcome and have faith. Those hard times make you a better and stronger person.
"Difficulties in your life don't come to destroy you but to help you realize your hidden potential."
Saturday, March 21, 2020
When you wake up every morning, the first thing you should do is to love, encourage yourself, believe in yourself. And think that whatever happens today you can handle it.
The right attitude will propel you in the right direction.
Start your day with being grateful that you still wake up while there are many people somewhere in the world who are fighting to survive, or some people don't even have a chance to stay alive.
Despite imperfect life, and in reality, there is no perfect life-- no one can have everything they want. If you focus on the things you don't have you never be content with anything, but instead, if you focus on what you have, you will be satisfied with your life and will live happier.
Being content doesn't mean you don't desire more and stop developing, but it means you choose to be happy with what you have while you are patiently waiting for the better day to come.
"Always encourage yourself and believe in your capabilities. The only person who can bring you down is the one you let through the door. You have the key to your happiness."-Derin

Our thought is everything if we can control it we will be happier. Unfortunately, most of us tend to let our thought control us, and some of us even think we can't control our thought.
I can understand people who think that they can't control their thoughts because it is not an easy thing to do; it does not something that can change overnight.
However, it is not impossible if you really want to have a positive thought, you can work on it step by step. And a powerful technique to have a positive thought is to be aware of your thought.
To notice what's happening in your head before your thoughts have a chance to build any momentum. The sooner you catch yourself thinking about the negative thing the easier you can stop your train of thought before it has a chance to get going.
For example, you might face difficulties in your life; you lose your job, break up with your partner. It can be understandable if you would feel sad about a failed relationship or discouraged about losing your job, but instead of obsessing with what has happened, what if you start to focus on the positive things such as what you can learn from them.
Breaking up with your partner gives you lessons about how to improve yourself and give you the opportunity to learn about how to live as a couple. And it's a time to reflect yourself on your relationship, give yourself some time to think about it. Breakup is not the end of the world, you still have lots of chances to find a new and maybe a better one.
And losing your job is not the end of the world either! There still are tons of jobs that are waiting for you. You are losing your job because you deserve something better.
So your thought is everything, whatever you think you become, and it is up to you whether you will let your thoughts control you or you will control them.
"Every positive thought propels you in the right direction. Start your day with a positive thought, and believe that whatever happens today, we can handle it."
Wednesday, March 4, 2020
You don't have to compete with other people because we all have our own uniqueness and skill. And we all have a flaw. You may good at something but you may poor at something.
No one is perfect that what makes us human; we are not supernatural that has the power to control everything. We rise we fall, we learn and grow from our failures.
It doesn't matter if you fail but what matters is how you manage to rise and learn from it. Give every day a new chance for yourself to begin and don't let your mistakes from the past destroy you but use them as stepping stones.
And even though it may seem you have a long way to go, don't be discouraged instead give credit to yourself for how far you have come, what you have been through, and that makes you become who you are today.
Just keep walking, make today better than yesterday and believe that the best is yet to come.
"The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday."-Unknown

You can't change the situation and its outcome but you can change the way you think and can choose the way you will react to it.
In life, you always face difficulties and often things don't go your way. Rather than cry over spilled milk, work through your situation.
What already happened we can't change or undo it, instead of complaining or trying to blame on others, and regretting what happened, you 'd better move on and find the way to solve the problems.
And even though you can't fix it all, you should be proud of yourself for what you have done. That means you have tried it!
"Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference."
Friday, February 7, 2020
When you believe in yourself, and trust yourself, you don't need to seek approval, acceptance, and encouragement from others. You don't need to explain yourself to anyone for what you do because you know what you do and want in your life.
You know your happiness in your life does not depend on other people or any circumstances. You know how to live your life and you don't need to live your life for other people.
When you are strong and believe in yourself you know you can't control any situation or what other people will treat you but you can control how you think about them and how you will react to them. It is just like a bird sitting on a tree that is not afraid of the branch breaking because its trust is not on the branch but its own wings.
"A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because its trust is not on the branch, but its own wings. Always believe in yourself."-Unknown

We fall, we rise, we hurt, and we learn. We are not perfect and it's okay if we have a meltdown because we are human.
We make mistakes but they will not be mistakes if we learn from them.
Don't forget you are human. It's okay to have a meltdown, just don't unpack and live there. Cry it out and then refocus on where you are headed.

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. It's your life.
You don't need to please other people. You have the right to do anything that makes you happy and if they don't like what you do, it's not your business. As long as you are happy and satisfied with yourself, you are good to go.
"Be happy. Be yourself. If others don' like it, then let them be. Happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody."

Our life may not be perfect. We don't get everything we want but don't let it forget what we have.
If we are not content with what we have, we will never be content with anything because there will always be something else that we look for.
"Appreciate life even its not perfect. Happiness is not the fulfillment of what we wish for, but an appreciation of what we have."

You were born on this planet to live life for yourself, not for others. You have the right to do anything you want and love to do if it does not harm others.
And if it makes you happy, you don't need to get approval from anyone, you don't need to explain yourself either.
Never explain yourself to anyone. You don't need anyone's approval. Live your life and do what makes you happy.

When we get up, every morning, the first thing we should do is to love, encourage and believe in ourselves. Even though others or sometimes our loved ones don't believe in ourselves, it doesn't matter; as long as we have faith and believe in ourselves that it matters most.
We don't need to seek any encouragement from others but we can start to motivate and encourage ourselves. When we are secure and whole, nothing can shake us.
If now you feel you have a long way to go, it does not matter--what matters most is how far you have come!
"Don't wait until you reach your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of every step you take toward reaching your goal."
This morning, it doesn't matter how you feel but remember life goes on. And if you feel discouraged, just look in the mirror, the person you see is the one who loves you the most. This person who has been through many things but still being strong.
"Always remember your greatest test comes when you are most weary and when you just don't think you can hold on any longer. But hold on and keep moving forward."
