“They keep saying that beautiful is something that a girl needs to be. But honestly? Forget that.
Don’t be beautiful. Be angry, be intelligent, be witty, be klutzy, be interesting, be funny, be adventurous, be crazy, be talented - there are an eternity of other things to be other than beautiful. But what is beautiful anyway than a set of letters strung together to make a word? Be your own definition of amazing, always. That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.”
There are so many standards for “beauty”. Allow yourself drop them.
Give that gift to yourself.
I recognize my beauty (that has and will always be there) most when I am my own definition of amazing.
