Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of public relations. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when e suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth we have spoken it. ~Whitney Griswold
You were born to be REAL, not perfect. You are here to be yourself, not what anyone else wants you to be. Be bold. Be brave. Be yourself…even if it means you end up alone. Being alone is better than having people in your life that don’t value you.
If you spend your life trying to be accepted by this world’s standards, you are setting yourself for continued disappointment and end up losing yourself in the process. Be yourself and be proud of who YOU are. Respect yourself. You deserve it and no one take that away from you if you don’t let them.
