Before I die I want to love myself and became an successful person

by Yasa

I feel it's really important to me to became an succsessful person. I have so much goals and dreams. Sometimes it's hard to keep going and believe that I'll achieve them.

But who are we without our goals?

Maybe it's better to live quite, I mean just live simple life in your hometown, without "big" goals. But this life is definitely not for me. Although I think my goals will probably destroy me from the inside.

And what about love?

In my opinion, self-love is the most important thing in our lives. I want to became a friend to myself, a person who I can admire and appreciate myself more.

I have been working on this for about 4 years and I really hope I will be able to love myself from the bottom of my heart.

Words of wisdom from the heart
by: Nicole (Oyster English)

Yasa, thank you for sharing these words of wisdom. I can tell that they are heartfelt and that you are on the best path in life.

We are here to create and reaching for your dreams by having goals is one good strategy we can use. We are also here to love and to experience everything life has to offer. Some things in our lives we want and others are things we need.

Loving yourself is rarely conquered once. We are tasked with having to learn to love ourselves again and again throughout our lives. We have to learn to love ourselves even when we make mistakes. We must learn to love ourselves when our bodies and appearances change. We have to learn to love ourselves when other people do not.

It is helpful to not see self-love as a battle but as a part of the human condition.

If you are not attached to a particular result or outcome, it is unlikely that your goals would destroy you from the inside. It is only when you assign a specific meaning to your goals that you'll feel unworthy or defeated.

Why not bring an experimental approach to your goals? You can experiment and try to reach a particular goal but if you do not achieve it, it was only an experiment and you may try again or choose to find a lesson learned. Or, you can simply congratulate yourself for doing the best you could at the time, love yourself and move on to the next experiment.

I wish you the very best and keep practicing your English.
