I’ve seen more damage done buy low self-esteem and doubt then anything else. I’ve had my fair share of both. I learned during my struggles of getting a broadcasting degree that you can read about right here and here, that if you don’t believe in yourself, very few other people will. I’m not saying you won’t have supporters, you will but you will have lots more critics. They are never nice and they almost never have your best interests in mind. We all struggle, and it’s always hard. If you are struggling with low self-esteem or doubt it’s even harder. The past is called the past for a reason. It doesn’t matter anymore, and you can’t change it. You were put here for a very specific reason. You have skills and abilities that no one else on earth has.
The walls that you have built can keep you from finding your true potential. You are unique and special. Whatever has happened to you, has given you prospective that no one else has.
I have a wheelchair. No one sees the world like I do. Other people in wheelchairs have had different life experiences than me and almost certainly see the world differently than I do. My chair is an obstacle. A wall for me to get over. In the process of life it has made me strong, give me a will to fight, and not allow it to conquer me. Whatever the reason was that you built your walls, it’s time to take them down and start working towards being the person you want to be.
