It might in part be a product of the values of our society, combined with plain ol’ human nature, for us to occasionally feel down about ourselves. Who among us hasn’t experienced low self-esteem in one area or another: physically, intellectually, in relationships, as a contributing member of society, etc.
I’m not talking here about chronic feelings of low self-worth—that’s for a different conversation. But rather, those occasional times when we need a lift, a morale boost, a shot of some healthy ego.
Well, this one’s for you:
“I may not be someone’s first choice, but I’m a great choice. I may not be rich, but I’m valuable. I don’t pretend to be someone that I’m not, because I’m good at being me. I may not be proud of some of the things I’ve done in the past, but I’m proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect, but I don’t need to be. Take me as I am or watch me as I walk away.” — Author unknown
