    Is the following a proper sentence construct?

    Hi all,

    "As I have, time and again, proved to myself, I am self-sufficient. And no further situations are warranted to that start believing in myself".

    Is this sentence correct? Are the punctuation marks placed properly? Or should I, instead use

    "As I have, time and again, proved to myself that I am self-sufficient, no further situations are warranted to that start believing in myself".


    Thanks in advance,
    Vijayalakshmi.

    Welcome to the forums, Vijayalakshmi. "And no further situations are warranted to that start believing in myself". I'm afraid this is meaningless.
