As human beings, our brains tend to default to the negative, and we're notoriously self-critical -- especially when something goes wrong. We think we're not good enough, not smart enough or not strong enough to achieve contentment.

But here's the truth: You are none of these things.

In the inspiring video above, YouTube user Meghan Rienks explains exactly why that type of belief system is false.

"You are not your grades or your jean size or anxiety and depression," she says. "You are not your past. You're not defined by a number or a phrase or a moment."

Happiness isn't fleeting if you focus on the positive. Now that's a message worth believing.
