Spiritually speaking,

change begins with the self. Oneself. It is the journey from the inner critic to the personal hero. A slight change of perspective can initiate that change within yourself. Instead of being your own worst critic you can become your own best friend. This will affect how others view and think of you on a day to day basis. Instead of expecting others to assert who you are, why not begin by letting others see who you truly are? The truth is, if you are not happy with the person you see in the mirror, no-one else will be.

Living according to who you truly are, through your actions, intentions and deeds, and not according to others' expectations means that this authentic vibe will begin to radiate outwardly and boost inner self belief. It Will be mirrored back to you as you interact with others in the experiences you have, and in the positive relationships and friendships you begin to form and nurture in a more conscious manner. Remember change begins within yourself, only you can transform how others see you.
