Don’t fall into the habit of looking to other people for validation or approval. Whether it may be your family, friends, how many followers you have or amount of likes you get on Instagram, this does not validate your worth.
Remind yourself each day that you are good enough, and you don’t need anyone else to tell you otherwise.

“When I started, people were like, ‘What are you?’ I’m like, right now I’m dating a guy. I don’t know what it’s going to be in three years. You love who you love. Black, white, polka-dot, that’s what my dad always said. I’m never going to label myself. I could be 50 and dating a woman and then what? I said I was straight and now I’m not?’” -Shay Mitchell

Back when I was in high school, I dyed my hair blonde to fit in with my friends. They all had blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. I would stay out of the sun, I got blue contacts, I would dye my hair lighter. I look back at these photos, and I’m like, ‘Why was I trying to change who I was?’ If I just enhanced what I was born with, I would’ve been a lot happier. Embrace who you are and celebrate the fact that you’re unique. That’s what makes you beautiful.
