Leo: You tend to derive a lot (or sometimes, all) of your self-worth from your achievements and successes.
How to help yourself: Continue working hard and striving to be the best and don’t feel bad about it. But also remind yourself on a constant basis that you are human, you aren’t perfect, and it’s more important that you are trying than it is that you are always succeeding.
Nobody gets to tell you how you feel, nobody gets to take away your emotions or experiences. Nobody gets to tell you how to heal or cope with any of the shit that you’ve been through. Just because you look a certain way or act a certain way, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t an entire person you keep hidden from the world.
