It all starts with.....Our Self... 

We are all responsible for our own lives. However external influences and societies pressures to conform contribute to people not living as their true selves, making us feel sad, off balance or not good enough in some way.  This itself opens up risks of damage to self esteem, self confidence, self worth and the way we relate to the world.
