I have always had an open heart and mind. Something I take great pride in is my constant necessity to be kind to others around me. This could either be through consistently giving the best advice to the people around me, or just being a listening ear to those who may be struggling and are due for a good venting session.

Nevertheless, I have always taken pride in my ability to lift others up when they are feeling down. I love to help out others in any way I can.

However, sometimes I forget about myself and how I am feeling. I forget to give myself the same pieces of advice when I am struggling, and I forget to actually listen to my own words of wisdom. I give and I give to other people, but forget to give back to myself.

25 things I constantly need to remind myself of are...

1. You are smarter than you think
