The road to loving yourself, that road to self growth is a tough and difficult one. Because on that road, you're going to be so lonely and often find yourself in dark situations when you want to give up, and you're going to feel the negative thoughts creeping in. And sometimes it's going to be so difficult to get rid off. However, the key to self love and acceptance and growth is isolation. You isolate yourself. You're going to ache from being lonely, but then you heal, then you accept yourself. But of course it's not going to always be that simple. That's why you're going to try and never give up because one day you're going to look back and ponder on your life and think, "damn I went through so much shit and survived." And you're going to be proud of you when you do. Heck, I'll be proud of you when you do. Somedays you may forget to love yourself and that's okay, as long as you keep trying, that alone is victory. As long as you bounce back from those negative, depressing situations, that alone can be an achievement.

And, secondly, people is always going to judge you,especially when you're different. But damn being different is amazing, the ability to stand out and not be like other people is outstanding. I often find myself caring so much about what other people think of me and when ever they judge me, that hurts but you know what? I always say to myself, "if they aren’t apart of your life, don’t make them apart of you. " Seriously the people that are judging you right now, they're not perfect themselves. And no matter who you are or what you do, they're always gonna judge.

(A quote I always liked)

"One day it just clicks. You realize what’s important and what isn’t. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that you would never recover. And you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become."
