I love this proclamation by Virginia Satir - which is why I share it often on social media. These words apply to each one of us and need to reach every person who can read.  I am very happy to have this platform on #mytrendingstories to be able to share these lines further.


"My Declaration of Self-Esteem"

In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me.

Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone choose it.

I own everything about me - my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself .

I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears.

I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me.

By so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts.

I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know ;

But as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me.

If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turned out to be unfitting, I can discard that which I feel is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded.

I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do.

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.

I own me, and therefore I can engineer me.

I am me
