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
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Be mindful of the way you speak to yourself. You can lift yourself up or bring yourself down just as much as anyone else can.
Relax. Breathe. It’s okay, you have time. Take it day by day and allow things to unfold as they’re meant to. Your life will happen according to its own timing, and you will become the person you’re meant to be.
Speak softly to yourself, for frustration can often only draw you backwards, and does nothing to change the situation itself. You deserve kind words. You deserve respect. So, give it to yourself.
