on being happy
Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different.
When I read this, the words couldn’t have been written more bluntly and more true. It was stated so plain and yet the meaning is very profound and deep. Plus it is so applicable to where I am in my life right now.
