Without a solid foundation of self-esteem it’s hard to protect ourselves from the hardships of life.
Being happy requires believing in ourselves and our right to lead the lives that we need. Your sense of happiness and pride needs to come from within, not without. The longer we keep looking to the world to validate us, the more unhappy we will become. The time for you to start believing in who you are and what you want is now. Take this first step in rebuilding your self-esteem.
