I listen to this cheesy, but inspiring positive affirmation every morning. Sometimes I’m all for it (life is great, enjoy the moment, woohoo). But most times I feel like I hate myself (thinking I’m a loser, why am I even here, I don’t deserve any of this). l’m not sure if I’m deluding myself with all this self-help stuff.
