If you can’t resolve your own issues, be the solution for someone else. After all, it’s better to give than to receive. If you don’t love yourself, then give yourself away. If you do that, you’ll be amazed at how valuable you feel.
A nose job won’t bring you a life of joy. A Ferrari won’t make you admired by millions. You already have what it takes to be loved and valued; it’s just a matter of releasing and maximizing all that lies within you. You won’t always be perfect, and that’s perfectly fine. The idea isn’t to attain perfection in your lifetime; it’s to seek it. You want to keep striving, keep growing, keep giving all you have to give so that, in the end, you can look back and say, I gave it my best shot.
Take a look in the mirror right now and say, “This is who I am, and I accept the challenge of becoming the best I can be.” Your challenge is to find that purpose, fuel it with hope, drive it on faith, and put your uniqueness to the highest possible use.
Loving and accepting yourself is the only cure for self-pity and victimhood. Drugs, alcohol, and promiscuity offer only temporary relief, and eventually they bring only more pain. Believe in your value and purpose on this planet. We share our imperfection and also the beautiful gifts we’ve been given. Look inside. There is a light inside you just waiting to shine.
