How Low You Go?

  • How low you go depends on how you feel about yourself to start with...
  • If you depend a lot on outside situations and what other people say to feel good about yourself... life can be pretty freaky 'cause you're always worrying about what's coming next!
  • Healthy self-esteem keeps you believing in yourself from the inside out and out of the crash zone.
  • Life is a lot smoother with healthy self-esteem. You have you the confidence and energy you need to follow your dreams.
