Chapter 53: Love Your Own Voice by Leslie A. Fischman
Popularity is based upon likeability not based upon who knows who. Connections don't matter, tight or loose. It's about who you are that matters most, whether accepted or not, by others. Always do your best to be well liked, understanding of others.
What you know is what you hear and read and that will never change. Know your voice in life, speak to what matters to you most not speak to the concerns of others, how one turns on oneself.
There should be no surprises in life so long as you are always doing your best there should be no surprises in life. It's when you're not prepared in life that life catches you by surprise.
Life life without regret. Always count your blessings twice in life. Mental illness occurs when you think things are happening that are not happening for you in life. Always note that the World is a big place, never think too highly of yourself no matter how many followers you get, always keep a level head on your shoulders.
Never get too wrapped into yourself to think you're someone that you are not.
Its always hard to get yourself to do things that you don't want to do in life. Don't fret the small stuff, easy does it, one day at a time. Know your best, and never stop trying to be your best in life.
You are a product of your connections and associations in life -that's how you put your World together. Always be grateful from where you come from as well as everyone in your World that helps you realize your potential in life.
Think like you are you in order to be you and stay you in life, you cannot be bigger than yourself in life, only you know you best. Coming up isn't easy in life, it takes hard work.
Love yourself enough to know when to stop following others paths in life and to just be yourself. There's only so much soul searching you can do in life until you have to just settle down and be yourself. Never be condescending to the needs of others in life, we are all human.
Intimacy occurs by communications with others, always be professional toward others to ensure the comfort of those you love around you. Never be awkward but to those you love and like, they will know what's best for you when you are not well. Intimacy is love to be shared with those you love.
When you know your stopping points in life you won't get sick by others. Know yourself well enough to stay separate from those you communicate with.
For every edge there's a take. Finding your edge in life is defined by your grind. What you do everyday to become a better person than you were yesterday. Life is a summation of your ability to handle life on life's terms without disrupting your present circumstances, living freely without cause, and under support of others, while helping others accomplish their goals too through your supportive nature.
Theres always time to be beautiful in life. You are always one of a sum in life, equal to its parts. Never wonder why you are the way you are different than not good enough, always remind yourself that you deserve to fit in with the best of them. Life's not all about looks but about being normal. Always do your best!
When you don't know where to start or where to begin always look toward yourself past and pick up from there. Do not become too reliant on others for direction in life. It's how you think that matters most. Defeat the negative voices within you to see positive. That's how to undo negative voices and hear yourself again, like yourself.
You won't know your self-worth until you try. Do not be bothered by the opinions of others, their standing, or their worries. No one can take your place in life. Life's not a political competition it's about blending in + fitting in.
When it's all in your head it's all in your head. Always be good enough for yourself first and foremost and others second. You are you. Not one can be you. Jealousy is a form of hate, always be happy for others and likewise they'll be happy for you too. Stay positive!
When you're doing well everything around you will turn out well too. Never underestimate the power of forgiveness for self and others.
Love every moment of everyday that you have to live life. Always live for the moment. Enjoy life.
Be confident and live freely, free from restraint, free from voices, free from those who've caused you harm in your life. Always be positive toward self and others, to live freely. Be kind mostly to yourself and spread kindness like confetti from there.
It's important when you're not feeling well to go to systems of support for help and guidance, not rely upon ones own decision making skills when off center.
Know your limits in life. Ask yourself what is your stopping point. Never go over the edge in life, always be frugal with your time, never a spendthrift.
When you know you're worth it you will shine. Never underestimate yourself. It takes time for people to come up in life, some do and some don't. There's always an opportunity for change, never stop trying.
Who you trust and who inspires you is none of anyone's business but your own. Always be thankful for your blessings in life. Nobody can change you, that's not how life works. Only you can change you.
What speaks to you is what matters to you, matters to all.
What is believed is what is said and heard and connected as having or not having to do with you. What speaks to you matters as to what's at issue with you or others. What you think matters most not what others think as question, whether anything is of or concerning you is none of anyone's business but your own. Never become defensive overtly to the responses of others as that's you picking up negative words or language and applying it to yourself. That's how one becomes negative by too much focus on negatives and too much application of self it's like vanity gone wrong in the negative, always be positive, therefore.
You will always be you no matter who walks in and out of your life. People don't make you who you are you are responsible for building your own self in life. Be kind to yourself and others, think well, have safe thoughts about self and/or others to feel safe.
The voices you hear make up who you are. I was once told "we all hear voices." If so make sure the voices you hear hear well are trusted voices such as the media and newspapers. They are the best judges of character -use us sparingly not to a fault.
What you focus on is what will bother you about self and others, on the record or off the record conduct and statements, all of it matters, as to how you will be judged by others as truthful, cognizant, caring, or helpful to others -genuine or not.
What matters to you may not matter to everyone, especially those looking for faults and sources of blame. Always stay positive, in order to best be there for others, not worry about what others fixate on, how to be immune from hate, live freely.
When you're ready to quit is usually when you need to keep going in life. Let no one keep you down in life. Always try your best, and focus on what's important to you, not be too focused on others, always have a life of your own in order to be well balanced.
What is your life that is you, based upon your exposure in life who you see and talk to opens a window to your soul looking outward. How to see best is by who you connect with and talk to on a daily basis, how to be well adjusted in life.
When you know you're wrong, own it. Correct yourself, and do a better job of being you in life.
Youre never that important enough to think that everything is about you. Not everyone has the time of day to constantly be thinking of you or worrying about you in life. What connects is not always about you and can be about others trying to put together pieces.
What matters to you may not matter to everyone you meet in life and that's okay. You need not convince people of your thoughts or argue your position in life or decision making skills that just makes you look defensive to the opinions held by others. Always represent yourself best.
Quit worrying about what other people think, and don't stop being you.
