The majority of my who I am has been built by what others have made me think I am. This is not to say that most of those things are wrong, I would just like to find out for myself. Up until recently, I put so much stock into people I classified as having it it all. I would hope that someday everything would fit together for me and I would be flawless like how I perceived other people. I realize now that these types of people appear perfect because they believe in themselves and are not afraid to show that.
Finding the correct weight on the scale between what you give off and who you really are is to me one of life’s main challenges. Diane Von Furstenberg once said, “When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier.”
My advice: Treasure yourself before others, so that they will value you the same way you do.
