-You are not defined by those that are determined to re-create you; nor are you defined by those that cannot accept you.
-Your worth is not and should not be diminished by those that you perceive as better than you.
-You are talented, even if you're unaware of the fact at this moment.
-Your beauty does not lessen on the terms of others' opinions.
-You are resilient, being as you're still here with us today, despite the problems you have faced.
-Your personality is exquisite, even if others do not believe it to be.
-You do not require the permission nor the approval of others to feel; it is your heart and mind that takes account for what occurs in your life. Handle it as you need.
-Your intelligence is valuable, no matter the depth. There will always be others that are more advanced. Learn from them; give yourself the ability to grow. It is not competition.
-You are not defined by the opinions of your past, nor your actions. Growth is accompanied by change; your morals will not always remain constant.
-Your well-being should always be maintained and considered in regards to any friends, family, or lover(s). Those that are toxic to you are okay to remove.
-You are entitled to an opinion as is everyone else; even if that opinion is often disagreed with. Do not allow others to silence you for what you believe.
-Your goals in life are very important, and should be supported by those around you. Do not allow negativity to prevent you from doing what you wish in your life. Life is short, and to live it as you will, you're going to have to be inflexible to those that wish to withhold you.
-Your existence is not insignificant. Ever. We all contribute to the world, whether it be very minuscule, or very monumental.

Don't allow anyone to dull your shine. Keep going; you'll be okay.
