Self-love: a trip to find yourself.

You're like a shaped diamond, formed of different facets. And every angle of this precious stone will reflect your life in different ways, but always your way. Taking in consideration all your angles, you'll have to stop trying to please everyone and give up searching your self-esteem on the eyes of people around you. It doesn't mean you'll be as a shell, closed in your own world. But don't trick yourself thinking the others don't have importance while building your self-esteem/happiness. The others, as society, will always be part of your life. Everything you are and became was shaped based on relationships. Not taking responsibility for others people fantasy about you doesn't mean it stops existing or it's less important in the way you perceive yourself and how you behave. It's exactly the opposite. The society that raises and cares for you is the same that hurts and neutralizes you. This text was written by Marcos Lacerda, a psychologist and YouTuber from Brazil. As far as I know, it's available only in Portuguese. I translated the best way I could. Para quem tiver interesse o livro é Amar-se: uma viagem em busca de si mesmo.
