Validate-Yourself, Sachin Karpe

We all have techniques we depend on to lift our spirits when we’re feeling down about ourselves or our lives says Sachin Karpe.

  • Reading emails from readers who’d benefited from my writing
  • Calling people I loved and reminding myself of how much they valued me
  • Sharing my experiences and recognizing through the resultant conversations that I wasn’t alone with my feelings and struggles
