Someone's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you . . . you're locked in here with me!
'Walter Kovacs/Rorschach' from the movie Watchmen
You are as important on the first step of your journey as you are on your last.
Duane Alan Hahn
When you're young, you tend to believe what people tell you, and that's dangerous. As you get older, you learn that you're never as good or as bad as they say you are. If you understand this, you win.
George Clooney (adapted)
Honey, lately your low self-esteem is just good common sense.
'Evelyn Norwich' to 'Deborah' from the movie Spanglish
Smile, for everyone lacks self-confidence and more than any other one thing a smile reassures them.
There is a difference between conceit and confidence. Conceit is bragging about yourself. Confidence means you believe you can get the job done.
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
Henry C. Link
Confidence is courage at ease.
Many people believe that humility is the opposite of pride, when, in fact, it is a point of equilibrium. The opposite of pride is actually a lack of self-esteem. A humble person is totally different from a person who cannot recognize and appreciate himself as part of this world's marvels.
Rabino Nilton Bonder
Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
If you are prepared, then you are able to feel confident.
Robert J. Ringer
With confidence, you can reach truly amazing heights; without confidence, even the simplest accomplishments are beyond your grasp.
Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.
I've always had confidence. It came because I have lots of initiative. I wanted to make something of myself.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
If you think you're a second-class citizen, you are.
Nobody holds a good opinion of a man who has a low opinion of himself.
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
