„Something I realised last year is that I've spent the majority of my life giving other people the power to define me, rather than taking that power for myself. I've let others decide how beautiful I am, how smart I am, whether my thoughts are valuable, even allowing them to tell me what my own intentions or beliefs are, and thinking that they must be right, even when they break me down into worthless pieces. Since then I've been trying my best to unlearn that. To reclaim my right to define myself. To trust that I know me, what I believe, who I am, and ultimately, my own worth, better than they do. Because if we don't take that power for ourselves, we'll spend our lives being broken into pieces by everyone else's opinion of us. And we have too much to do, to learn and to BE to waste time giving ourselves away to people intent on devaluing us. I'll probably spend a lifetime unlearning the idea that how I see myself is in everyone's hands except my own. But I think it'll be worth it. Because even a drop of that power reclaimed and placed in our own hands, is stronger and brighter and a million times more valuable than their approval ever could be. So let's go find that. Let's build a sense of self so strong that nobody could convince us we are what we're not.“ found this quote by @bodyposipanda and couldn’t agree more! We can decide who we are and who we want to be ❤️😍
