“Someone's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.” -- Les Brown




I have lived most of my life worried about what other people think about me.


Wanting to fit in.


Wanting to be the prettiest.


Smartest.


Coolest.


Skinniest.




At 34, I am finally realizing that the only thing that matters is that I love myself.

I am working on it.

I am glad you realize it! I was older when I realized it now I am the happiest I have ever been.

I'm still working on it too - but isn't freeing to realize that you are fabulous just the way you are and that you don't have to conform to others idea of how you should be.

It took me a while to not worry about everyone opinion about me. It's liberating to let all that worry go and just celebrating being yourself. Great quote!

This is such an important lesson to learn. We'll all be working on this - all of our lives. I wish it were not so.
