"There is this strange habit in the west that is largely unknown in many eastern places. It is called self-esteem. Westerners feel this odd impulse to have a relationship with themselves, to either love or hate themselves.
There is a focus on objectifying the idea of the self and then judging it. All the while, one is completely ignorant of the ease behind just Being. Not being your unique or special self, but just Being. You are you.
So long as you objectify and judge yourself, seeking either a positive or negative relationship with yourself, then you will never really know who or what your self really is."
"If it matters to you, then you’ll find a way. If it doesn’t you’ll find an excuse."
