Stop looking and start listening to that voice within

Self-esteem to some people may seem like their worst enemy. Having high self-esteem ain't always easy,trust me. I'm still working on it. I know people think how do I know anything about having any type of selt-esteem if im still working on it?

I believe it takes a person to go through things in order to teach and share with others. I'm telling you it's a lot of sacrifice, discipline and a lot of dedication.

It's best to start off in baby steps versus rushing and being something you are not, because it's not gonna work!

Still 'til this day I cry about the struggles of healing and learning. I sometimes talk to God and question God about his will and doing and sometimes ask and question why?

I even took it as far as demanding him saying why can't you just give it to me, why can't you just give it to me, why do I have to work for it, this is something I should already have and etc.... we all have been through it before so the best thing to do is let go and let God guide you and listen to that voice inside and let it guide you.

Let it embrace the real you find out who you are by praying, trusting and believing that God is listening and helping you to love,accept and deserve the best there is in life.

Thanks for your honest comment Doneshia.

I hope you will always have the discipline and dedication you are talking about 'till the rest of your life. Improving ourselves it's not an easy task.

We have all been through difficulties in our life, the point is how you or we approach these events or situations and how we can turn them into our own advantage.

Sometimes it doesn't seem that we can ever reach a chosen goal. Sometimes the obstacles look so "giant" that we are tend to give up. But - as you stated - we have to take "baby" steps to get closer to accomplish those goals in life.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ( Confucius )
