From talking to people so much and from getting to know them, it's never been more apparent to me, how difficult it is to feel okay about yourself in 2016. Real talk, I mean, every sing day we go online and trust me, I love th internet, okay ? I love it, but.. everyday we go online and we scroll through the highlight real of other people's awesome lives, and we don't see the highlight real of OUR awesome lives... All we see is the behind the scenes of our lives. We see every single moment from when we wake-up and are like "Oh god... not feeling my hair today, it's not gonna be a good day today for the hair"... We see our doubts... we see our fears... we see our concerns... We are the only one that are inside our brain, feeling all of our anxieties and hearing the voices that are telling us that we can't be what we want to be or that we want to be more like that other person over there. Let me tell you, people are mean to each other, but no voices is as mean as our own voice to ourselves. It's true, right ? Everyday when you look in the mirror, and your mind is telling you the things you're not.
