Life is about how you feel about yourself. Life is about self-discovery. Most people, as I used to long ago as well, tend to seek themselves, their identities, their value, out there in the world; however, this search is the opposite of self-exploration. It is why the focus must remain always on you, on self-development.
Two essential things to do:
1- Take care of your physical health: The most important thing is the energy from food and drink. In order to feel well, strong, full of energy and positive, you must not eat heavy foods and drink anything that is going to poison you and make you feel negative in any way.
2- Do not escape your past, your hurt, your troubles, your misery, but deal with it. Embrace it. Study it. Transform it into understanding and wisdom. The worst thing you can do is escape it through distractions–i.e., going out with friends, watching tv, traveling, relationships, etc. Deal with yourself first.
In order to feel great, successful, loved, happy with yourself, you must meet yourself. All of yourself. And make sure you accept your past, and work towards moving on. The image you build of yourself in your mind must be truthful and positive. If this happens, you will be strong and confident without caring about what others say or do.
