We all have two buckets inside of us, the negative bucket and the positive bucket.
Focus on filling up the positive bucket. Save every compliment, every kind word, every award, every success into that bucket.
When times are hard.
When you’re scared.
When you’re wringing your hands.
Bouncing your leg.
Remember the positive bucket. Remember you’ve done this before, and remember those kind words others have given to you before.
You’re not useless. You’re not worthless. You’ve got your bucket of positive memories and your defiance at a bitter world to smile.
And you will be invincible.
