Never let anyone convince you of anything negative about yourself unless it is for your own betterment. And, if what they have said is true, then thank them and take it in for consideration. But unless someone is trying to help you, don't you dare, ever let anyone tell you who and what you are, because, on this planet, you are the unquestionable and supreme authority on — you. But it can be useful to ask yourself a few important questions. If you met your exact self as another person, would you like them? Would they be a good friend? Would they seem kind, generous and loving? Would they have time and patience, and invest in your friendship? Would you feel good in their presence? Would they make you laugh? Would you truly want to spend time with them? Would they be a good influence? Remember, no one on earth spends more time with you, than — you. Be a good friend to yourself. The best way to be a good friend to yourself is to be a good person. Be the kind of person you wish you had in your life, because who you are, is exactly who you've got.

Shame it takes like forty years to put it all into place and practice but better late than never😁
I beg to differ. SO many people don't know themselves AT ALL. Not even a little bit! If you ask 100 people what they wanna do to improve their lives, 99 of them won't even be self aware enough to understand the question. No, You are usually not the authority on You.
Doesn't society do that...constantly?
There's a meme that's actually a photo from a book page and it tells about how there is no profit in folks being happy with themselves....and so, they attempt to make us all believe we are inadequate so we will be good consumers.
(People, some of them, are like that to).
Some folks will exploit (is that the right word....what I mean is: cause you to believe you're inferior so you will come to them for compliments/love/support/etc.)
Do not believe that shit.
You have to know that you're human, and you make mistakes, and as long as you are not intentionally Attempting to harm others....then, you're alright just as you are.

"You don't always have to verbally say something in order for it to be understood by other individual. Our behaviors, facial expressions, and silence can say so much more than what we could verbally say."
