    I don't expect anyone else, besides myself, to have faith in me. If I didn't have faith in myself, I'd be truly lost.

    I Have Faith In Me

    Because I cannot expect anyone to have faith in me if I don't have faith in myself:) It all starts with us. Confidence and self-esteem is always, always important. We may fail, but that doesn't have to be the end of everything. We can always try to do it better. Or just TRY...
