NOTE: This post isn't as daunting as it seems :P

I've always suffered with lack of confidence throughout my life. Always too shy to stick up for myself and even for my friends. But I believe im starting to get on top of it. However i'm still VERY self concious and I wish I wasn't so paranoid with the way I look and am.

However, I just wanted to give a list of quotes that will help raise your self esteem so we can all be on this journey together. (the bolded ones are ones that I like alot )

Please feel free to post some of your quotes so we can all learn from each other.

Also, post the times of which yopu have felt supremenly confident, successful or even just happy.
Lets share our experiences.

There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.

To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.

Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
