Miley Ray Cyrus | November 23, 1992. “Don’t let people’s judgment define who you are. Don’t read the comments and get nervous. Know who you are. Maybe they succeed because they don’t have anything to prove. They’re just doing it because they love it. The minute you stop making mistakes is the minute you stop learning. I’ve just got to make sure that I’m the voice of my generation. I think that I’m allowing girls to be really free with their sexuality.”
Despite our need to simplify and generalize absolutely everyone and everything in this life, human beings are impossible to simplify. We are never just good or just bad. We are mosaics of our worst selves and or best selves, our deepest secrets and our favorite stories to tell at a dinner party, existing somewhere between our well-lit profile photo and our drivers license shot.
