Although the world is full of suffering, it’s full also of the overcoming it.
~Helen Keller

 

I’ve spent years suffering from depression, low self-esteem or rather no self-esteem and social anxiety. I’ve been medicated, inundated with self-help books, seminars, videos and I’ve come to the conclusion that suffering comes because we have been taught that pain will always be with us.

Decide Who You Are For Yourself! — August 26, 2018

Decide Who You Are For Yourself!

I'll-do-my-way

“Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people.

Adventure.”  ~ Roy T. Bennett
