To believe in yourself is to let go of your mistakes belonging to past memories, to learn from them and make better choices from now on.
To believe in yourself is to inquire deeply into your psychological traumas and fears, and so to rise above them and lead your life without those burdens.
If you carry your burdens without inquiring into them, without facing them, without understanding why you choose to suffer them, then there is no belief in yourself; for carrying your sorrows will block you from positivity and strength to see the best in you.
To believe in yourself then is to have faith in yourself. Now, to truly have faith in yourself IS NOT to blindly hope that something good will happen in your life; but it is to ACTUALLY believe (as fact), trust, acknowledge your strengths now so you can lead yourself to a better life moving forward.
Nothing can be accomplished, inwardly and also outwardly, without believing in yourself. You can put your trust, commitment, faith in others; however, this is just an escape if you do not actually believe in you.
So, learn to see your strengths and adopt positive attitudes towards yourself, even amidst challenges and fears, because this is the only path to transforming yourself into a better person, and your life into a better life.
