Sally Field

 Sally talks about her low-self-esteem:

“Many people must have looked at my life and thought I was quite fortunate. But I felt lousy about myself–and as you now know, I didn’t come from a place where I had a lot of self-confidence. In my late 50s I began to embrace myself in a way that I hadn’t been able to before. I find that I’m not as worried anymore about what other people think. That’s a comfortable place to be. And I’m starting to let go of the feeling that I need to push myself to do things. I don’t want to do–an impulse that has always been linked to the feeling that I’m not enough. If you’re busy thinking, Gosh, I’m not pretty or smart enough, your spirit is undernourished. The minute you tell yourself, I’m never going to feel those things again, you stop growing because you’re too busy armoring yourself.”  O Magazine
