Everyone is flawed – everyone. However, it’s interesting to see how some people either address what they consider to be their flaws, in a positive way and carry on with their daily lives, while others focus on what they consider to be their flaws – or magnify minor flaws they may have – in a negative way, and it hinders them from enjoying their lives. Notice I stated, “what they consider to be their flaws”. That is because often times, a person will think less of themselves regarding something that others barely notice, or notice at all.
If you start off with a defeatist attitude, that is where you will stay. If you don’t believe in yourself, or think you are worthy, then how do you expect others to? A person is more approachable when they exude confidence. If you tell others – or yourself – that you’re NOT ‘this or that”, then you NEVER will be.
I’ve said this time and time again: do not compare yourself to others – their looks, their job, their accomplishments , etc. I truly believe that one of the main reasons why people get sad, lonely, depressed…is because they think of themselves as less than the next person. Why do that to yourself? Don’t worry about being like the next person or trying to impress the next person. We’ve all been blessed in one way or another. Focus on that! And, if there is something about yourself that concerns you, take the steps to improve upon it – instead of talking about it. When you look in the mirror, tell yourself you are just as worthy as the next person. It must start with you.
How do YOU see yourself? Confidence is the key.
Regardless of your physical appearance, education, wealth, circumstances, you can truly enjoy your life if you first start by practicing self-love. It’s all in how you see yourself.
“If you think a thing is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.” ~Bruce Lee

This is video is old, and you’ve probably seen it before, the message is still important for those to see, who compare themselves to others.
