Self-fulfilling Prophecy

I think when my self-esteem is usually bad, I'm usually in this state where I think that nobody wants to be around me. But the thing is, if I believe that I am unworthy of interacting with people, then this inevitably seals my fate. I then create behaviors based on this self-reflection that draw people further from me. I couldn't possibly want to be around others if I didn't want to be around myself. I feel that the most important thing that I can do is practice self love.

Absolutely. Totally agree. Self compassion is huge. Coming from someone who is so so hard on herself, that always makes things so much worse. If you can love and accept yourself, it really does transform things. It just takes a lot of time and practice to instill this in your mind.


You know what to do! Congratulations!! All you have to do now is follow through! It's time to do it!
