1. Start off small. Compliment yourself here and there. If you’re having a good hair day, don’t be afraid to tell yourself, “Hey, you look pretty darn snazzy today.”
2. Insult yourself less. That bad grade on the test isn’t gonna matter 10 years from now. There’s no use in thinking about what you could’ve done to fix it while you’re laying in bed at 3AM.
3. Remind yourself that today is just a day. Tomorrow is a new one. It’s full of possibilities and opportunities that are just waiting to happen.
4. Figure out your comfort zone, and figure out your limit. Yes, it’s nice to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while, but it’s there for a reason. Adjust and adapt to your comfort zone accordingly, and know when it’s worth stepping out of it.
5. Realize you’re living your life for you, and only you. You’re not living it for your parents. You’re not living it for your peers. You’re living it for you, so do what makes you happy.
6. Let it go. Let everything go. Let yourself go. Lift those chains from your shoulders that you’ve been carrying all these years. Just let it all go.
7. Tell yourself that you love you. Say it in your head. Say it out loud. Say it as many times as it takes for it to start being true. And then keep saying it.
