You don’t just wake up someday and fall in love with yourself. It takes time. It takes patience but more than that it takes self compassion, empathy and kindness from yourself towards your own heart. You have to be brave enough to forgive yourself for all the mistakes you have made and all the chances you didn’t take. Like all the other forms of love, you will learn to love yourself by practicing SELF-LOVE. -Dhiman.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I am a big fan of Key & Peele. Not recent, but this is one of the best.)
We are all searching for connection, and yet we are all avoiding eye contact. We are all searching for people who understand, but we close ourselves off before we discover that they can relate to the struggles we try so hard to hide. We convince the outside world that we are fine, even if we are aching for help, and that is why we don’t get it. That is why the distance between us and everyone around us widens. We are all running away from each other, when we should be running towards one another.

Violence is the easy way out and it only leads to more violence. We need people in this world who are willing to find solutions through peace, through communication, honesty, and diplomacy. World peace may seem impossible, but it’s worth aiming for.
You don’t have to be a politician to stop wars and practice peace. Make sure every word you speak and every action is coming from a place of love.
If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world. -DEEPAK CHOPRA.

You are being presented with a choice: evolve or remain the same. If you choose to remain unchanged, you will be presented with the same challenges, the same routine, the same storms, the same situations, until you learn from them, until you love yourself enough to say “no more”, until you choose change.
If you choose to evolve, you will connect with the strength within you, you will explore what lies outside the comfort zone, you will awaken, you will become, you will be what you want. You have everything you need. Choose to evolve.
