If I could go back and meet my younger self, I would have so much to say.

I would tell her that she is strong, and doesn't need everyone's approval.

I would tell her that it's ok to not be in a relationship. That it's better to love yourself before loving someone else

I would tell her to stop procrastinating, and just do what you want to do. Life is too short to slow yourself down.

I would tell her to value herself and stop letting people buy her for pennies.

It might be late to tell her that. Instead, I will fix what I can. I will teach this to the new generation of girls, instead.

To all of the young girls out there:

Know your worth

Dont let these guys run over you

Support each other, women are stronger United than divided

Don't let a guy destroy your self esteem for his enjoyment

Know that you are beautiful, strong, worthy, loved, and brilliant

    SO TRUE! make sure you can love yourself first and never settle for people who make you feel lesser. Not even just guys and girls, in any relationship.
