You are the way you are for a multitude of reasons. You never have to stay this way, but at least be aware of how far you’ve come. People can be so harsh when it comes to judging themselves. They notice everything wrong with themselves, but they are quick to forget everything right.
Chances are you are not the same person 5 or 10 or however many years ago. Chances are you are a better person. Don’t you think so?
If not, then you better start working.
