Most people hide from difficulty and internal turmoil. To truly appreciate something, you have to realize that you will lose it one day. Life is a series of unrelated events and decisions. We say things like, “everything happens for a reason.”But understand: Life just happens. It’s easy as changing your existing thoughts when they are not useful to you.
Whatever you do, get comfortable in your own skin, it’s the only one you will ever have. And that brings us back to Emerson again, he said: And that’s life.
But the moment we lose ourselves and our identity, we can no longer be the person we want to be.
We want to be liked and loved by the ones we care about.

Always have a list of things you can do with your time. Otherwise, you become a dependent robot who can’t function by itself. But at the same time, we believe that it’s bad to depend on yourself. Because when you’re self-reliant, you can enrich the lives of the people around you much more. And even though I must confess I don’t fully master emotional self-reliance, I have made significant steps that positively changed my life. What you will find next are 6 lessons that can help you to become emotionally self-reliant. It’s always harder to speak your mind and to stand for something. Nothing’s going to change when you let out all your emotions. When you’re needy, you only damage your relationships in the long-term. As a whole, it promotes self-reliance as an ideal, even a virtue, and contrasts it with various modes of dependence or conformity.Because the essay does not have internally marked divisions delineating its three major sections, readers should number each paragraph in pencil as this discussion will make reference to them.“They come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.” In every book or painting or film that moves us, we respond because they speak to a truth we recognize—if only subconsciously. Yet he understood the importance of holding convictions about your personal potential.“To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all … “Speak your latent conviction, and it shall be the universal sense; for the inmost in due time becomes the outmost.”Still, it can be hard to feel sure of ourselves—particularly as our personal failures accumulate.
