“What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.”- Carl Rogers
Love is when you have the courage to be yourself. Love is when you have the courage to love yourself, no matter what.
You are the way you are because you are you. There is no other person like you. You are unique. Your journey is unique. Do not compare yourself to other people. Why? Because you do not know where they are going. Because you do not know where they are going to end up.
To see yourself as you really are, to love yourself as you really are, is to love yourself, is to respect yourself.
You are born with interesting gifts. Use them to grow yourself. Do not let fear stop you from using your gifts to bless the world, to bless yourself. Do not waste your gifts. Do not waste your talents. They are yours. Decide to live your life. Decide to use your gifts to change your life.
Remember, the best way to get ahead in life is to start. If you do not start, if you are not yourself, how are you going to get ahead?
