    How To Change The World Through The Self

    NEVER say I hate you to yourself. In fact, don’t even allow yourself to say anything hurtful to yourself about yourself. Tell yourself that you love yourself everyday. Allow yourself to make mistakes and just experience them- don’t judge yourself, or others. When getting...

    How To Change Me.

    I hate everything about me and I get so upset about it sometimes. I really want to change the way I think because it is beginning to affect everything. I have no confidence and no self esteem and I really need to build them up again to be me again.
