Why You Should Give Yourself To Yourself

Albert Camus said, “To be happy, we must not be too concern with others.” You have a lot of positive things to worry about, not other people’s opinions.

If you want to be happy, do what makes you happy. Be around happy and positive people. Don’t waste your time trying to make other people happy. Make yourself happy. Don’t try to please everybody. Trying to please everybody is like trying to cook your food without water.

The only person you can please is you. The only person you can control is you. Because you are responsible for your own life. Make your life the way you want it. Don’t explain your life to negative people. They will add nothing your life. Instead, they will poison your mind. It is your life. If you want to live it well, you must do whatever you can to stay away from people who are not adding anything to your life.

“It is better to praise yourself than to belittle yourself.”

Don’t explain your life. Live it. Follow your dreams. Don’t become what other people want you to be. Instead, try to become who you really want to be. With hard work, you can become who you were created to be. God created you for a purpose. And that purpose should be your drive, not people’e opinions. God has a plan for your life. Listen to God. Follow God. Look up to God, not to man. Because God will never fail you. He has done it for you before. If you follow Him, he will repeat it again.

You can become who God created you to be. You do that by giving yourself to yourself. Michel de Montaigne said, “Lend yourself to others, but give yourself to yourself.” Don’t allow other people to live your life for you. Live your life yourself. That is how God wants you to live your life.

Michel de Montaigne said, “Don’t discuss yourself, for you are bound to lose; if you belittle yourself, you are believed; if you praise yourself, you are disbelieved.” No matter what, it is better to praise yourself than to belittle yourself. God wants you to praise yourself. And you should always praise yourself. You should never put yourself down. God wants you to go up. People want you to go down. Choose God, not people.

No One Is Perfect

No one is perfect. We are all learners. We are always learning new things. We are always learning new things about ourselves. Learning is good for you. It is good for your life, for your growth. If we are not growing, we are dying. If we are not growing, we are sleep-walking through life. That is not why you are here. You are here to grow, not to die. And if you are not moving forward in your life, check what you are doing every day.

What you are doing now is preparing your tomorrow. If you don’t do well today, you won’t do well tomorrow. So if you want to have a better tomorrow, you must first do well today. You must take today seriously. You must do everything well today. You must focus on what will get you what you want in your life.

My dreams are not your dreams. To achieve greatness, to achieve success in your life, you must focus on your life.

Doubts are powerful, but do not let them stop you from doing, living, enjoying, and breathing your life. Eric Hoffer said, “Our doubts about ourselves cannot be banished except by working at that which is the one and only thing we know we ought to do.” Don’t worry about making mistakes. You cannot grow without making mistakes. It is good to make mistakes. If you are not making mistakes, you are not making progress in your life.

And if you want to make progress, remember that no one is perfect in life. It does not exist. It is not even possible to be perfect. In the words of Wolfgang Riebe, “No one is perfect- that is why pencils have erasers. ” If everybody is perfect, the world will be a boring place to live in. No one is perfect. Whatever you want to do in your life, don’t let self-doubt stop you from doing it. It is okay to doubt yourself. But do not let self-doubt stop you from jumping off the cliff.

If you want to grow, you must cultivate the courage to jump off the cliff. You must leave your comfort zone. You must try something new. Stop doing the same thing over and over again. Walt Disney said, “All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.” Don’t stop dreaming big. If you have the courage to make your dreams happen, they will come true. Go for it!
