I'm aware that the timing is TERRIBLE. I've focused energy into the moral approach of a suffering self esteem rather than energy into the structure.
1st paragraph (appearance): Spending unnecessary time & effort on looks doesn't actually improve the way we feel about ourselves, but changes the way we feel about our looks.
2nd (criticism): when listening to negative criticism, we eventually begin to agree with it, accepting it as guidance. People shouldn't let opinions lead their lives.
3rd paragraph (influences): society won't stop bad role models from bombarding our lives, but we can decide what we allow to influence us.
4th (abilities): we cannot judge our self value by the things that we can or cannot do; considering we cannot give what we do not have.
Lastly: We can't always rely on everybody, so we need to love ourselves foremost.
