Shopping for Self Esteem

did anyone ever tell you Did anyone ever tell you..
Something kind about you
Such as how you appear to them
Or a talent you have?
Did Anyone Ever Say Something Nice to You?
Did you ever think their compliment was a lie?
So if I tell you something wonderful
That I observe about you,
Do you think I would lie?
If you have ever received a compliment,
Or if you ever do,
The greatest thing to say is..
“Thank You.”
Then, set out to discover the good,
The genuine precious qualities you actually have.
They are there.
Did anyone ever tell you where to look for them?
In your heart. That’s where all of your worth And goodness exists –
And no one can ever take that away from you.
They don’t sell self esteem in Bloomingdale’s or Harrods’
Target and Wal-Mart don’t carry it either.
Did anyone ever tell you..
You can buy self esteem in the beauty salon?
They lied.
It’s all inside – no matter how nice the outside appears,
All of your worth will eternally exist in your heart.
