“ Your beauty doesn’t come alive when someone compliments you, it’s always there. Remember that. In order to receive such a compliment, the very thing has to have been present in you before the complimenter arrived. I encourage you to celebrate your beauty.

Say the words “I’m beautiful” with bold integrity. Live for you. You matter. ”
