insightful

She says you can't give in to your demons and live life apologetically

And so I ask her,
how do you realize self-worth
without coming off as arrogant?

She says, it’s simple really
once you’ve understood
the difference:

Arrogance is thinking you’re better than all (and showing it)
Self-depreciation is thinking you’re worse than all (and vocalizing it)
Self-worth is having respect for all,
including yourself (and maintaining it)

Yellow paint

Vincent van Gogh would eat yellow paint because he thought it would get the happiness inside him . Many thought he was mad and stupid for doing so because the paint was toxic . Of course eating the paint couldn’t have any correlation with happiness ,but when you’re at you’re worst even the most insane ideas could work ,like painting the walls of your organs yellow and it would seem reasonable to you . Its really no different than falling in love , there’s a greater risk of getting your heart broken , but people do it everyday because there’s also a greater chance that it will make things better .Everyone has their yellow paint
