Be easy on yourself. Have fun. Hang around people that are positive and make you feel good. Anyone who doesn’t make you feel good, kick them to the curb. And the earlier you start in life the better. The minute anybody makes you feel weird and non-included or not supported, you know, either beat it or tell them to beat it.
