  2. And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take you to name yourself?
    Have you ever considered this question before? Where would you rank yourself on this list? If you don't even place yourself at the top, you need to step back and reassess your priorities.

  3. Admire someone else's beauty without questioning your own.  
    It's a positive habit to see the beauty in others, but be sure to apply this to yourself. Check which features or traits make you unique instead of comparing what you’re not.

  4. Love yourself so much that when someone treats your wrong, you recognize it.

  5. Become a priority in your life.
    Instead of putting others before you set yourself on equal footing. Give yourself time, asses your needs and how to get them, then work, school or your relationship will change accordingly.
