“To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting” – ee cummings.
SELF ESTEEM AND PURPOSE "You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. This is how important you are!" - Eckhart Tolle
