You stop begging. You stop shrinking for people. You smile more. You say no more often. You not only begin to learn what makes you happy, you go and do it. You wear what you want to, you speak how you want to, you embrace the parts of you that are different. You don’t wait around for people. You don’t settle. You don’t let someone’s negative words make you question anything about yourself for longer than a few minutes (and eventually not at all). And, I think, through this self love you love others so much more, too.
Your flaws are perfect for the heart that is meant to love you.Unknown (via coffeeandlavender)
