"Self-Esteem" Author: Unknown

I am ME.
In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose 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 don't 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 turn out to be unfitting, I can discarded that which 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 and I am okay.
