Be proud of who you are and what you’ve gone through. Have faith in yourself and trust you have the strength to keep going. And know that at the end of the day, only you have the power and ability to tell your own story. So tell it as openly, honestly, and authentically as you can.
“I always think that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it takes knowing what you don’t want to know what you do want, meeting the wrong person to know what the right person would be like. And that’s life. You have to go through these things to find the right person to find your right path in life. It’s not the decision that defines who you are, it’s how you deal with them, the repercussions and how you come out of that. You learn different things about yourself by looking at the people that you choose to surround yourself with, relationships and friends. And I think you can only attract the right people when you know who you are. It’s like they say you accept the love you think you deserve. Until you know what you want and who you are the right people won’t be attracted to you.”
My advice for girls who are waiting for their Prince Charming is to be open for anything. Be open to new experiences, be open to the idea that it may take longer than you want, but if you’re open to meeting new people and new adventures, then love will come along.
[About her red hair] It’s funny—in the beginning, I was apprehensive and didn’t want to do it, because I had other commitments, and then I just dove in. The woman who did the color did an incredible job because it changes color in the light. It goes purple to watermelon to pink to red. So I would love to keep it as long as I can because I think it’s really fun. And the more you wash it, the brighter it gets, so it starts changing color even more.
