Everything in your life always points back to you. Being able to love and rely on your own self reflection doesn’t happen overnight. Therefor, it takes time and work to like the person that looks back at you in the mirror. The worst thing you can do is think that someone else is going to change your life because they’re not. You are the one that holds the control to make these changes. Your friends, guys, teachers or mentors cannot do it for you. It may seem that way in other people situations, but they never truly own their own success. Their success will always be attributed to the person that “changed their life”. So, this other person’s success or the way they’ve changed your life for the better, will only fulfill you internally temporarily. Great, someone gave you a new job or your new boyfriend bought you a new car. As a result their left with temporary happiness, as it didn’t come from something they did on their own.
How you see your self reflection will prove to be important in all the relationships you have in your life. Others will want to be around someone who is self reliant because they respect you and can see your determination. Have you ever been around someone who had a poor self image? They’re usually complaining and putting other people down and looking for the quick way out of everything. Those people stay miserable forever, but it doesn’t have to be that way for you. The best way to start making changes in your life is to change your way of thinking. Think highly of yourself and be thankful for what you have. I always try to think of all the good things in my life when I wake up and before I go to sleep. Therefor, having a positive self image gives you courage to make big moves.
