Time Waits For No One | Robbie Nevil
The strength that your loved ones give you could inspire you to examine a more challenging life path.
The aid and support of your loved ones can give you the courage to make the most of the opportunities you have been given. The people who care for you are a resource that you can draw from for support, and the value they can add to your experience is unlimited. Knowing that you are loved can raise your self-esteem, help you feel more comfortable taking risks, and empower you to believe in yourself. Because the people that are important to you will always support you, you’ll be less afraid of failure and more likely to try again should you falter. When you feel bolstered by your loved ones, you will see that anything is possible.

For most of my young life, I tried so hard to meet his expectations that were never going to be met. The result? As a young adult, I spiralled out of control and was thrust out in a world that I was not ready for, however, deep down inside I knew that I was not that stupid little girl that I was made to believe I was all my life.
As time went on, I did prove to myself that I am a very intelligent person with compassion for others. The compassion came from understanding the emotional hardships we all go through and what they do to our mental health. However, self-esteem has always been a problem for me, no matter what I accomplish.
There have been people in my life who have recognized my problem with self-esteem and used it as a weapon against me. It personally stops me in my tracks when I recognize it is happening and makes me wonder why this person is still in my life and their trait of flawed compassion questions my capacity to make wise choices.
It doesn't have to be loved ones. The support of those we admire means so much . . . think about it. Compassion and support from others is a treasured gift that should be cherished when you find it.
