In this podcast we explore
  1. Self-aware: The key is to accept ourselves just the way we are, avoid self-criticism, and don’t evaluate ourselves self-worth based on what other people think of us
  2. Train ourselves to be as much as humanly possible and not take things too personally.
  3. Self-affirmation: In order to acknowledge the good quality of ourselves, we can try to give positive affirmation to yourself by making list of things you’re good at. “I accept myself no matter what, I mean that’s okay. Bad things could happen, and that’s still okay.”
