"Self worth is vital to your happiness. If you don't feel good about you, it's hard to feel good about anything else." We often forget that the person we need to please first, is the person in the mirror. Jeanette Ow-Yeang, our SMV feature, teaches us the key to happiness begins with a happy self. Creating a happy self however doesn't always come easy.For 4 yrs Jeanette was in an abusive relationship which left her mentally & physically bruised. Fearing judgement from others she never shared her pain. Then the day came where she had had enough, she packed up her car & never looked back. "I remember driving off our driveway & thinking that finally I was the luckiest girl in the world." She gained her freedom, she had her peace, and now she could finally seek her happiness.
We can never receive the love we deserve until we learn to love ourselves - Jeanette Ow-Yeang
