"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don’t want. Letting go of the past is your first step towards happiness.
You are not your past failures. You are not how others have at one time treated you. Learn from your regrets, but do not punish yourself with them. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. "
"When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside. "
