Once you're at your lowest and acknowledge there are people in much worse situations; be grateful that it is the case. You have a new opportunity every day to make a small change.

It all begins with a single step. To create momentum, do this: - Dress up for a week - Learn something new for 10 mins a day - Exercise for 30 mins Completing tasks like this will start to boost your self-esteem.

"Comparison is the thief of joy." Social media sets unrealistic expectations for all of us that can never be reached. There might be an appearance of a great life, but you don't know if the people behind the pics are actually happy.

Never lie to yourself. Accept your imperfections. There is always room for improvement doesn't matter how good you think you are. Embrace it.

Catch yourself when your thoughts go towards the dark side. How much of it is true? Probably nothing, we tend to exaggerate our views of ourselves which keep us in a hole mentally. Question these false beliefs.

Surround yourself with positive people as often as possible. They'll help you see your own worth and help you on track to becoming your best self.
