Be fucking brave

ES1Be fucking brave, don’t ever adjust yourself to fit someone’s idea of what is funny, or beautiful, or likable.

Don’t ever make yourself small to fit someone’s comfort level.

You are funny.

You are beautiful.

You are likable.

You are enough, you are plenty.

Be your authentic self, without apology to anyone, because you should never have to apologize for who you are.

All my life I’ve been told I’m too loud, that I’m obnoxious, too sassy, too blunt, too emotional, that I should be more humble; to anyone who thinks I would be more manageable or likable if I was less of a certain quality I say, with the utmost respect, fuck you.

I chose instead, to be fucking brave; I will not adjust who I am to make someone more comfortable. I am comfortable being the loudest in a room, I am comfortable being the most sarcastic and sassy person, I am comfortable pouring my heart out onto the floor and having it stay there in messy vibrancy, but more than that, I am comfortable with someone not liking me.

In a world that tells you, you should be more like “this” to be liked, chose instead to declare your love for yourself regardless of anything.

Believe that you are funny, witty, beautiful, and smart, that you are good at what you love, a good friend, and a good person; know that none of this will change if someone doesn’t agree. You will not stop being any of these things simply because someone doesn’t happen to see it, your value does not decrease because they don’t see your worth.

  1. Ridiculously Inspirational women on my newsfeed: Demi Lovato, Ronda Rousey, and Samantha Dixon. One of them is a little less world known but to me they’re all equally bad ass.
