Self esteem

 

"Why would you want to be someone that you are not?

When you could be better by being yourself.

Why pretend to walk in someone else's shoes?

When you have something they haven't got.

Just cheating yourself of the life you have to live

Deprives others of that only which you can give.

But you have much more to offer by being just you.

Trying to live the life of another is a mistake.

It is a masquerade, nothing more than fake."

 

Bintou

 

"Today I will have courage
To do one thing that is new
I will be kind to another
And to myself be true
Today I will remember
The blessings that are mine
I'll live the day with confidence
And for me the sun will shine"
