hey you, yeah you, read this carefully and slowly:
YABJAYA (You Are Beautiful Just As You Are)! you are not what THEY (fill in the blank with whoever is relevant to your life and situation) say or think you are. you, and only you, determine who and what you are. what THEY say only has weight if you give the negative commentary validity. should you agree with the statements and opinions others have of you (which as stated in an earlier post: is none of your business); however, if you choose to make it your business, then change it! period.
at the end of the day, ask yourself: do you really care about the opinions of others, and if you do: WHY? once upon a time when i was a girl blossoming into womanhood, my dad said: “do not let the opinions of others dictate your life choices. long after the decision is made and that person goes on with his/her life (and forgets all about what was said or the
insignificance of whatever well-meaning critque , you, and no one else, has to live with your personal choices. so it is best to follow your own heart, mind, body, machinations and leanings.”
trust and believe that you can trust yourself to make the best decisions for the magnificent soul you are at this moment!
give yourself some love and a big hug.
YABJAYA (You Are Beautiful Just As You Are)!
