you are actually drowning.

Sometimes you can get so busy trying to be everyone else's anchor that you don't even realize you are actually drowning.

Sometimes you need to take a break from everyone and spend time alone, to experience and appreciate yourself.

One step to being more confident is to stop thinking about why you can't possibly be good enough for other people; be good enough FOR YOU.

You have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn't worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

You have to value yourself and KNOW that you're WORTHY of someone as loving and caring as you are.
