the power of self respect

if you find you are surrounded by toxic people… 

  • CUT. 
  • THEM. 
  • OUT.

You’re not perfect. No one is.

But you know what? That’s perfectly fine. The fact that your hair may be naturally frizzy, or that one foot is slightly bigger than the other, is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s all of these little differences that combine together and form you into who you are.

There is no ‘perfect’ person. There is no ‘perfect’ body. There is only imperfection that exists. Thus, do not chase after this illusion of perfection, for it is impossible to ever reach.

Accept yourself full heartedly and unconditionally. Become content with everything that you are, and who you are to become.

Communicate with others, but also be sure to communicate with yourself. Be open. Don’t try to seal your thoughts into an endless, unseen darkness. Everything that you are must be seen, felt, and nurtured, for each part contributes to who you are as a whole.

Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
