self-esteem

there are two potential problems with self-esteem: thinking too poorly of yourself, or thinking too highly of yourself. 

one leads to contraction and depression, the other to conceit and false pride.

better to just be, aware that you’re a self among many selves, and that we are all part of the Great Self. and remember you’re special, like everybody else.

if you find yourself regretting something you have done or neglected

instead of saying “what a jerk i was/am to have done that”

say”this shows growth: i can now see what i hadn’t been able to”

"Twenty-five years ago, Franklin Roosevelt spoke to my generation. “Youth: hold fast to your dream,” he said. In other words don’t give up your ideals of peace, freedom, justice, truth - the way as many adults do. When you come down to it, more people die from discouragement than any disease. And why do people get discouraged? Because they feel that life’s a joyless struggle; because they feel they’re on a dead-end street." (Pete Seeger, Annie Liebovitz) #seegerfest #peteseeger
