Carolyn Hax: Vulnerability and self-esteem in a relationship - comment from pdianek
don't mind me, just copying this in full!:

"Don't compare yourself to other people, especially whose whom you do not know personally or who are utterly hypothetical.

"Don't compare your SO to other people, especially men who treated you horribly. He's entitled to smudge his own copybook -- or keep it beautifully neat.

"And if he does eventually break up with you, remind yourself that that means he does not value your most fabulous qualities, and that you have therefore dodged a bullet!"

Carolyn Hax: Vulnerability and self-esteem in a relationship - The Washington Post
"Please examine the idea that one person (out of 7 billion, never lose sight of that number) can have so much power over the very essence of you. Any time you feel so vulnerable to anyone, please ask yourself: 'What’s THAT about?'
"And so each of us, in becoming whole, functioning adults, needs to find a way to come to terms with sharing the planet with people who are well-positioned to hurt us, be it through intent or merely by proximity.

"The one I recommend most is the 'whatever' approach: 'They’re out there, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.' Treat people as populating one of two categories: those who help you with your purpose in life, or those better tuned out as distractions.

"Make sure you’re in the first category yourself. If you think you can do more in life, then take concrete steps toward that. If you feel valuable as you are, then serve as no one’s inferior."

"Constant invalidation may be one of the most significant reasons a person with high innate emotional intelligence suffers from unmet emotional needs later in life. A sensitive child who is repeatedly invalidated becomes confused and begins to distrust his own emotions. He fails to develop confidence in and healthy use of his emotional brain-- one of nature's most basic survival tools."  invalidation  behavior  psychology  emotion  thought  abuse  guide  pdf  confidence  self-esteem  control

shoup house: Eno on gifts
“Things evolve out of nothing. You know, that the tiniest seed in the right situation turns into the most beautiful forest. And then the most promising seed in the wrong situation turns into nothing. And I think this would be important for people to understand, because it gives people confidence in their own lives that that’s how things work.

"If you walk around with the idea that there are some people who are so gifted – they have these wonderful things in their head but you’re not one of them, you’re just a normal sort of person, you could never do anything like that – then you live a different kind of life. You could have another kind of like, where you say, well, I know that things come from nothing very much and start from unpromising beginnings. And I’m an unpromising beginning, and I could start something.”
