I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.
Dita von Teese
Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be.
When you love and accept yourself, when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don’t know you think.
If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Be the type of person you would like to meet.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Pearls don’t lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it.
