"Reputation is what others think of you. Honor is what you think of yourself."
Acceptance of oneself and forgiving oneself are the two most important factors that contribute to self-esteem one has. If you can not first accept the way you are and are not able to forgive yourself, self-esteem suffers. Self-esteem is vital for doing anything. Without self-esteem, every step you take, you watch it so closely that, you are not going to make much progress. Lack of self-esteem creates diffidence. You will crave for validation from others. Once you start looking for security from anywhere but within yourselves, you are like a small boat lost in a big storm of life. You are certainly going to drift away from your chartered course. It's very hard to depend on your inner resources alone for self-esteem and security. But, that's alone what makes you secure or insecure.
