and why you wouldn't be right for each other. Remember just because you don't have all the answers right away

doesn't mean you never will, give it time.

"I'm not attractive funny or smart enough" are phrases

you might tell yourself, but self-pity is the root of a thousand problems

yourself and repeat them like mantras every day you wake up and look at yourself in the mirror.
