#self esteem

It’s not worthwhile to care what other people think of you, so be what you are and do what you do. In the end, we only have to answer for ourselves so don’t let anyone take your SELF away. Love yourself, explore yourself, create yourself, live yourself. Be true, meditate on yourself often, and be kind to yourself because quite often the world rarely is. How we deal with bad experiences leads to a strength of character that those who never have to strive will never know or understand.

You are all meant to be someone beautiful and great. You are meant to be loved and meant to live life to the fullest extent.

No one should stop you from living your life as who you are because at the end of the day, you’re not living your life for someone else, you’re living your life for yourself.

There is only one me and one you, and no one should make you feel that being who you are is wrong.

I want every bullied kid out there to know it is NOT you it is truly not you! You are a beautiful person, a beautiful heart and a beautiful soul! Don’t give up on you, don’t ever stop fighting for you and don’t ever allow someone to make you feel less than the amazing person you are!
