    Be Who You Want To Be. Don't Be Someone Who You're Forced To Be.

    So I know that many teenagers and young people find it hard to live in a society where the pressure to fit in is always increasing. Because of this, young girls and boys seem to think that they need to copy what other's, maybe the people they look up to do in order to be like...

    Self acceptance is one of the most important

    qualities someone as an individual should have in my opinion. Not for anybody else, just for yourself. You are you and there's no way that is going to change in your entire life, so instead of being depressed about who you are not you must be happy with who you are. There's...

    I do strongly believe people should accept

    themselves as they are either it will prevent others accepting you or those who do accept you for who you are feel they are fighting a uphill battle to help you accept yourself You are beautiful and if you can see that. Then your most important critic is satisfied (you)

    People Used To Call Me Heartless And Monster

    Honest truth is I used to be that dark, I've accepted and came to terms with that part and am trying to do right by my own moral codes and beliefs. I know I can probably never change the past, but I'll do my best to make sure the future is bright and happy so I can maintain the...

    Well Maybe Not Should

    Isn t shoulding yourself a bad thing?? Wouldn t it be nice if we could all accept ourselves, is that a little better? I think it is easier said than done to accept yourself, I am completley a work in progress, and that is something I can accept, embrace and enjoy. I am...

    After hating myself for years you need to stop

    and realize you are who you were meant to be . Stop wishing you were someone else you're perfect just the way you are.

    Don't be afraid to be

    who you are. You are a wonderful human being. You are unique! There is no one out there exactly like you. Don't let the haters say other wise. Don't be afraid to show the world who you really are just because you fear being rejected. YOU decide how you'll take the comments. You...

    Learn to love and respect yourself

    The Girl I Am

    Loving myself was something that was drilled into me, but it was something I could never do, growing up. I was as ugly as my thoughts shaped my face, knowing that I could never be beautiful, like the girls in my family. I wanted to be something that I wasn't. I thought my...

    I've spent most of my life hating myself.

    When I look in the mirror I never think I'm pretty and I find a million flaws, but I've learned that for every flaw I see somebody else sees a million great things about me. And if you spend your life hating yourself life isn't fun. If you accept who you are for your flaws and...
