It took me a long time to realise that I was not the only one in the world that had suffered in my life. For many years I had been a victim of past circumstances and as a result I was stuck in a negative and tiresome loop. It was onlythrough journeying that I realised that actually the challenges I had been through in life had not only bought me wisdom that made me a much nicer person but also an empathic and loving person who could relate to many people. I realised that my wounds were indeed a gift. This gift helped me open my heart and enabled me to relate to others. When I was able to overcome my own challenges I couldn't teach others how to overcome theirs. Our garbage can be our gift if we let it be so.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
