I have to admit there was a time when I worried way to much, about what other people thought of me. Did they like me, was I good enough?
Then I realized you can't please everyone and trying to do so will keep you stuck and depressed. It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
Now I know that change comes from within and will only happen if you choose to make it so. All you have to do is follow your own path, remain in touch with who you are and do what feels right for you, because you know ''YOU'' better than anyone else. It's really important that you feel good.
Don't wait for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you've got to make yourself.
Your thoughts have power, power to determine how you feel, what you do (or don't do). Become conscious of your daily thoughts and when you get negative thought in your mind, quickly turn it around.

Failure is not the worst thing in the world. The very worst is not to try. So keep on trying and do not give up no matter what other people would say.
Surround yourself only with things you love and that makes you feel good. If people tell you, you can't do something, take that as a challenge and prove them wrong. Chances are, they themselves can't do it, or are too afraid to try and are simply bitter about it.
