Self-Awareness as opposed to Egocentric Attitude
Self, beyond words, is the absolute existence of a person, their awareness of themselves, and their inherent qualities.

Learn Self-love with Small Steps
I met many people who go through difficult times in their life. They really struggle to cope with their mental health, depression, and anxiety.

However, the type and nature of these challenges may vary from one person's life to another. By observing, judging, experiencing, and critical thinking, I found some strategies to be a happy person. The main point of all strategies is self-love.

While we ate the kitchen table, he took his meals on a TV tray in the living room.
