"If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in this life, it’s that you should always be yourself. Be the person that you really are and not the person others want you to be. I spent years trying to please other people. I lived my life by their standards and never expressed myself the way I wanted to because I was afraid. Afraid of how they would think if I did certain things, afraid of their judgement and opinions and afraid that they would make fun of me. But now I look back and think ‘Why the hell did I let that happen for so long? Why did I want to make other people happy instead of myself?’. Hiding who you really are is a waste of your life. Please, do the things you would do if you weren’t afraid of other people’s thoughts. Live for you and only you, this is your life. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel bad about yourself. You, exactly as you are, are perfect and you don’t have to change a single thing about yourself, for nobody."

"Trusting life meant she had to stop trying to control it - it meant releasing into not knowing. And being okay with that. It meant not understanding, but living fully anyway. Or maybe living fully because of that."
