-The feeling of not being good enough is a real cause of self-doubt and it is one of the biggest problems any human can face. You have to introspect and ask yourself whether you gave your 100% to it or not.
-Always that you have to work every day to be a better shade of what you had of yourself, yesterday. There is no other valid comparison whatsoever.
-Jokes can also turn into insults many times and it affects mental health a lot. You need to take a stand and be vocal about it. You need to communicate to let them know how you are feeling.
-There will be people who would not value whatever you do, but that never means that you are not up to the mark. In your heart, believe that you are being better every day.
-Having emotional discomfort with someone is quite natural, and it is okay. There is nothing to feel guilty about. You need to cut the people off whom you find being a pressure for your mental health in any way possible.
-Isolation is a way of coping for many people who have suffered from mental abuse in their past. This surely takes time, but you need to gather your courage to trust people again.
-Know that not everyone’s the same. There will be people who care for you and you will be accepted exactly the way you are, by them. And for that, you have to prioritize yourself in the first place.
-It is very important to be empathetic to yourself. Being harsh on oneself is never a solution to any problem, or can never give one peace of mind.
-You are an individual and you should have your own opinion and choices. You have to respect your choices first and then only you can expect others to respect them.
-Stick to your point when you know that you’re correct. Peer pressure or the feeling of “What are people going to say” is a very harmful factor for one’s individuality.
-Unless you feel comfortable with yourself, you cannot be comfortable in the world too. You need to understand who you are, what you love, and then only you can expect people to make an effort to know you.
