This phrase has now become a daily mantra for me as it is something I have been guilty of in the past.
It’s easy to begin to rely on a relationship, a ‘perfect’ job or the good opinion of others in order to feel happiness.
However, this is a very unhealthy way to live your life. The key lies in realising that you can find your own happiness, whether that’s making fun plans with a friend rather than holding out for that perfect man to ask you out, or booking your dream holiday rather than agreeing to your friend’s ideal plans.
You are in control of your own life and your self-esteem will get a major boost once you recognise that control and start doing all the things that make you truly happy. So hold onto that key tight!
