“You guys affect me a lot more than you think you do because I go home at night and I talk to my roommate and she’ll tell me she’s so proud of me. Even hearing that from her, somebody who is as close as she is, it literally doesn’t hit me. It breaks my heart sometimes that I don’t see it or hear it everyday, I wish that I could talk to everybody. Not that I want feed my own head or make myself more excited about it, I really appreciate everything that everyone says because I listen to everything. Even the haters, even the people with bad things to say, it all helps so don’t stop.”
It takes a lot to accept yourself as you are and truly be happy with you. My advice to anyone who’s struggling with this would be to give it time and try to notice all the great qualities you possess. There are always going to be things you don’t like about yourself or reasons to compare yourself to others, but once you realize that you only get one you, it’s best to just love yourself.
