I do not have to repeat history. Nor am I reliving it.
I am not my stuff.
I am also not my thoughts.
I have no control over the actions of others, but plenty over my own.
I must never choose to believe there are no choices just because some alternatives are unpaletteable.
I am worthy of respect. When I respect myself, the respect of others tends to follow.

I am also not my thoughts.

This one I don't understand. The others I do.

It means that just because something is thought, that doesn't make it true. The corollary is that one should approach ones thoughts critically. This applies particularly to patterns of thought such as depression, which can if unchecked come to own a person. The idea is to be aware that one can always step outside of ones thoughts and look at them from a new perspective.
