Resist being your own enemy. Listen to your inner voice, what do you repeatedly tell yourself? What do you feed your mind? Be your own motivational speaker, catch yourself doing good things, even very little ones and praise yourself. Reward yourself for small successes, tell yourself you’re good and nurture yourself with good thoughts about yourself. Say ‘I Can and I Will’, repeat it out loud. Don’t count on others to encourage you. Remind yourself always that people come into your life and leave at some point, only you and you only are your lifetime companion. Act like a best friend to yourself, like your most loyal fan.
