The most common form of despair is not being who you are

Soren Kierkegaard


Why do I like the quote?

It's easy to fall into the trap of being who you think you should be to fit in, please others or be successful. It's not worth it if you're unhappy.

Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be

Abraham Lincoln


Why do I like the quote?

We can never have enough reminders that our happiness is in our own hands.

Some days are just bad days, that's all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that's just the way it is!

Dita Von Teese


Why do I like the quote?

To live a fulfilled life, you have to understand bad days will still come.

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Alexander Graham Bell


Why do I like the quote?

Everything can be an opportunity to grow and learn - if you let it. Life is too short to look backwards.

"The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward"

Steve Maraboli


Why do I like the quote?

It is a nice reminder that letting go will keep us stuck. We can face a lot of problems in life, mastering the art of letting go will help you through many of life's challenges.

Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you

Ralph Marston


Why do I like the quote?

Life changes when you realise your happiness is in YOUR hands. Happiness is something you work at, it doesn't fall out of the sky. Get consistent, do more of the things that make you feel good. You will have to push yourself, but it's so worth it.

“Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.”

Maxwell Maltz


Why do I like the quote?

Low Self-Esteem will stand in the way of you being you, doing the things you want to do and saying the things you want to say. Recognising this mind-set is holding you back and standing in the way of adventure is the first step to making change.

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”

Lao Tzu


Why do I like the quote?

Caring what other's think or looking for their approval creates issues. You can't control others so it's just too risky. When you accept yourself, other people's expectations and opinions have less of a sting.
