Helen Keller: Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.

Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.
- Helen Keller


Helen Keller was both deaf and blind. That might appear to be good cause to feel sorry for oneself, but Keller recognized that her life would be what she made of it, and has left us a great legacy of inspiration.

Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
- Helen Keller

  1. Self-pity is not always our worst enemy.
    If we had it and found a way out of it, this positive experience can be used to teach others how to escape "self-pity", too.

  3. I lack confidence when speaking in front of others. I sometimes think in terms of "Why cant i do this" Im shy " Im hopeless" is this self pity ? In other areas of my life I am fine. Why does this one area leave me feeling so useless.
