The happiest girls are the ones who never wonder whether they are falling behind because they realize there is no such thing.
You used to be an optimist. You used to be sweet and starry-eyed. You weren’t always this cynical. You weren’t always this short-tempered. The world made you this way. The people in your past made you this way.

It doesn’t matter if it’s been ages since anyone has asked you on a date. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been on a million dates and none of them worked out. It doesn’t matter if you’re in your twenties and you still haven’t been on your first date yet.
When you’re insecure, you spend a lot of time living in the past. You’re still stuck on how ‘ugly’ you were in high school or how the first person you loved rejected you or how your ex cheated on you. You have a hard time looking in the mirror and accepting you’re not the same person you used to be. You’ve changed. You’ve grown. You’ve become even more beautiful.
Loving yourself has less to do with the way you look and more to do with the way you treat yourself.

Instead of saying goodbye at parties, I sneak out the door when no one is looking.
