Ability to pass my last three exams- failure
Ability to lose weight- failure
Ability to be a great photographer- failure
Ability to save money - failure
Ability to find an interim job- failure

Uh, yes. But I try not to use the word failure. I try to think of it as a temporary hiatus of awesomeness. I'll be fu****g brilliant and on top of my shit one day. But that's not today.
What did I achieve today? I mopped some of the floor, vacuumed the loungeroom, and tonight I'm trying out a new recipe. What did I achieve yesterday? Hahaha much less than this. Today was a semi-awesome me day.

 Lol you go girl!

Sorry but they're right. You have to dig yourself out of that negative hole you have yourself in. It's not easy. Research some books & podcasts. I think that should be the most important thing on your list. You'll never be happy if you don't & you deserve to be happy. Put this above everything else. Took the death of someone close in my life to drive it home for me - you only get one life, make the most of it.

 I will imagine myself literarily digging myself out of a hole. I think about the mud and working hard to build steps out.

YOU ARE A CHAMPION AT LIFE!!!! YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN UP, RIGHT?? AND YOU ARE STILL HERE!!! YOU DON'T SUCK... YOU'RE ONLY HUMAN!!! IT'LL BE OKAY MATE, IT REALLY WILL. JUST HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF XXOO

OK, so these are things you haven’t acheived. But what have you done? I bet if you put in as much energy thinking about the things you havent failed at as much as the things you have then that list will be pretty long.

Fir the love of god, get off Facebook or social media and start by not aiming to do anything.

Yes,But I always think If “I didnt make it today”I will definitely make it tomorrow:)If you fail today then take it as opportunity to learn more and do it better next time.Think positive Xx

Who needs enemies when you think this about yoursel? Why not help yourself instead of putting yourself down. Get up, try again or move on.. just back yourself up. No one should love and support you, more than you x

Change the negative attitude to I can achieve any thing
