Self-Esteem

Weigh the pain I go through every time you judge me based on my body. The amount of tears shed, the times I told myself I am not good enough, weigh them all.

Pay attention to your inner dialogue. Instead of thinking of every bad thing that could potentially happen, challenge yourself to think of three good things that can come from any situation you’re in. By forcing yourself to see the positive, you’ll see how much more attainable it is without negativity clouding your judgment.

Capricorn: You have low self-esteem, because you were the smartest kid in elementary school. You did well in all of your classes and were constantly told how intelligent you were. Now that your’e older, you feel like you haven’t lived up to expectations. Like you aren’t as smart as everyone always assumed you were.
