Take a dig at yourself!

There is nothing about my nose you can tell me that I haven’t thought of myself.

We all have those moments when we feel a bit low and your self-esteem’s somewhere near the bottom of the Grand Canyon. People usually say to think of how kind you are or how much your friends adore you or some other better thing about yourself to pick yourself up.
