Don’t Worry

Don’t worry about being beautiful. There are things so much better than beauty. Be intelligent. Be funny. Be gentle. Be strong. Be forgiving. Be so, so kind. Don’t let the world convince you that your worth is tied to your physical appearance. If someone tells you to change yourself, to make your body attractive, to lose weight or wear a certain style of clothing, tell them to go screw themselves. You deserve to be happy in your own skin, not a shell someone sculpted for you. So be the best you can be. Be everything great and magnificent in the world. But most importantly, always be unapologetically you.
