Accept and embrace your habits, your personality, the way you talk/look, your voice — everything that makes you “you.” Remember that you’re a unique person who has value and is worthy of love and respect. Learning to be comfortable with yourself will help you project confidence to others and live a happier life. Show yourself self-compassion. Notice your day-to-day world from a point of gratitude and be amazed at all the goodness we take for granted.
