Faith is to believe what you do not see.
The reward of this faith is to see what you believe.
Make a pact with yourself to love yourself unconditionally—independent of how you perform anything whatsoever, or what anyone else says about you or to you, or the actions that others take toward, against, or away from you in your life. Observe the people around you with amusement the way you would actors on a stage. Taking this leap to self-faith is your life’s greatest challenge. Rise to it, and your other challenges will diminish in size and become more manageable.
