 When it comes to self-
worth, all of us have our
 El Guapo to conquer.
 What’s yours? Here are
the three common ones:

  looking.
 If you always look to the social
  mirror, you’ll always feel
  inadequate.
 Inner Beauty is more important
  than the outer kind.
                               Beauty Tips
                           For attractive lips,
                       Speak words of kindness
                             For lovely eyes,
                      Seek out the good in people
                            For a slim figure,
                   Share your food with the hungry
                           For beautiful hair,
        Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day
                                For poise
      Walk with the knowledge that you will never walk alone
         People, even more than things, have to be restored,
            Renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;
                       Never throw anybody out.
       The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
     The figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
         The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes
Because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
                             - Sam Levenson

  depression.
 Normal ups and downs are called the blues. This lasts a
  few days.
 When you suffer from psychological or clinical depression,
  it is much more serious. This is something you can just
  wish away and it’s not a sign of personal weakness.
  Symptoms include: changes in sleep, appetite, and
  energy, lack of interest in activities that were once fun,
  feelings of sadness, guild, worthlessness, hopelessness,
  regular thoughts of death or suicide.
 If you have any of these symptoms, please know that they
  can be treated successfully though counseling nutrition,
  exercise, medicine, or a combination of any of these
