Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you.

What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.

That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.     

Jim Morrison

The man who does not value himself, cannot value anything or anyone.

Ayn Rand,

Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.     

Iyanla Vanzant
