ACCEPT YOURSELF AS YOU ARE :- Nobody was there when God was creating you. I’m sure if you could make a wish, You wouldn’t have loved to be created that way. So, the knowledge of how you were created wasn’t known to anybody, So you should accept yourself as you’re.


LOOK AT SOMEBODY ELSE WHOSE OWN IS MORE WORST THAN YOURS :- There is no how bad you think your own situation is, some are still battling with things that are more worst than yours. There are so many people you’re also better than, Look and those people and be grateful.


ALWAYS SEE YOURSELF AS THE BEST:- You’re yourself, You shouldn’t compare yourself with anybody else. Believe in yourself that you’re the best, That you’re beautiful and perfect on your own. Don’t be sad because of the words thrown at you.


SAY NICE WORDS TO YOURSELF:- Don’t expect anybody to compliment you before you make yourself happy. If people fail to compliment you when you’re expecting, You’ll be sad, But if you’re the one who says nice words to yours, You can say at anytime and make yourself happy. Say to yourself, “ I’m beautiful. I’m cute. I’m pretty” then smile.


If you think it’s beyond your power and you can’t hold it anymore, don’t end your life, Go and see an expert. Mix up with people who make you happy.
