Screw what anyone else thinks. You're beautiful. You don't need to have clear skin, or weigh 120 pounds. You don't have to wear makeup, or designer clothes. You don't need blonde hair, or blue eyes. You don't need thigh gaps, or a flat stomach. You don't need perfect teeth, or a smaller nose.
Even if you don't see it right now, I do. I think you are absolutely gorgeous and you shouldn't let anyone tell you different. Ever.
Just a girl, turned eighteen.
She ran away to chase her dreams, and they said she wouldn't make it far.
Took a chance and packed her bags.
She left town and didn't look back.
So tired of wishing on the stars.
Sometimes, it's the little things that make you happy, like the way he smiles at you, the lyrics to your favorite song, or those days when everything goes right. Sometimes it's the big things, like vacations, concerts of your favorite band, or winning an important soccer game. Whatever the case, find something that makes you happy, and do those things. Life is too short to be spent on the things that make you sad.
