surely self-esteem is not truthfully based on material possession or exterior beauty(which then feeds optimism).
self-esteem can be instilled through experience. maybe the pursuit of said state of mind helps create self-esteem, with a purpose(which feeds optimism and self-esteem together).
we must strive to achieve wholeness/non-conflict in our minds. in this pursuit others of conflict will surely experience our progression and pursue wholeness as well.
but what are the attributes of whole "self"? and progressing "self"?
Kinda hard to follow all those words... I'm too tired.
Recognizing that fault is a part of perfection helps.
You just need to sort of recognize that you are in control of some things, and out of control of other things. I mean, it sounds obvious, but just kick back and enjoy the ride. That could be different for anyone else, but that's how I found nirvana.
