If you must cry, cry like a child. You were once a child, and one of the first things you learned in life was to cry, because crying is a part of life. Never forget that you are free, and that to show your emotions is not shameful. Scream, sob loudly, make as much noise as you like. Because that is how children cry, and they know the fastest way to put their hearts at ease. Have you ever noticed how children stop crying? They stop because something distracts them. Something calls them to the next adventure. Children stop crying very quickly. And that’s how it will be for you. But only if you can cry as children do.
In that moment when you realize your opinion about yourself matters more than what others think about you, you’ll find true happiness and the entire world will see you with distinct eyes. Think highly of yourself because others will take you at your own estimate. Don’t compare yourself to others, as they cannot speak with your voice, see with your eyes and feel with your heart. You are unique, and like any other unique piece in the world, you should know your self-worth. I can assure that everyone will look at you and have the exact same impression as you have about yourself. How others see you, is not important.. How you see yourself means everything.
