    When nobody else celebrates you,

    learn to celebrate yourself.When nobody else compliments you,then compliment yourself.It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged,it's up to you. Encouragement should come from inside.

    So many people prefer to live in drama

    because it's comfortable. It's like someone staying in a bad marriage or relationship - it's actually easier to stay because they know what to expect every day, versus leaving and not knowing what to expect. - Ellen

    "You hold the answers deep within your own mind.

    Consciously, you've forgotten it. That's the way the human mind works. Whenever something is too unpleasant, to shameful for us to entertain, we reject it. We erase it from our memories. But the imprint is always there."

    "When I was 5 years old,
