  4. Reminder: You are under no obligation to look pretty.


    Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.

    Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.

    Cosmo fashion advice is often centered on “if you have long legs, wear things to make them look shorter! if you have short legs, wear things to make them look longer!”, as if the ideal look for every woman is “oh wow, look at her, she’s so statistically average.”

  9. "I would look at my younger self and just say don’t doubt yourself too much, and don’t let the one terrible thing you hear negate the hundred great things that you’ve heard. You matter because you exist.”

    It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
