“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Try to reach her.
To bring her home.
In a nutshell, how people perceive you and your life is a mirror reflection of how you perceive yourself in your own head.
