Ashi - Confidence

Most of my life I was not confident in myself. I had very low self esteem, but now I've learned that what makes me feel successful is helping other people. After 12th, I did two internships, one working with special needs children and one working with homeless people. Now, I work full time with an NGO in Delhi’s red-light areas where I get to spend my whole day organizing programs for sex workers and their children. The Dalai Lama says that happiness comes from living for others. This is true, I did find happiness, but I also found strength, courage, and most important for me, confidence, by living for others. Maybe I should tell the Dalai Lama so he can share this with other people? :)
