Be yourself and be happy with yourself. Stop worrying about what others think of the things you do and just do it anyway. At the end of the day you have to be able to live with yourself so why do the opinions of others always seem to matter so much??

If you’re not hurting yourself or others you should be allowed to be happy on your own terms. Keeping with the last trends will cause you to go broke, going to every single party will cause your liver damage, and trying to be someone else will make you miserable. We’re all different and that’s what makes life beautiful. Embrace it and love it. 
You were born to live this life on your own accord. God made us all different for a reason. You have the right to live this life how you want so just do it. If no one else tells you this I will: you are unique, you are special, and you are loved. Every single part. The good and the bad. Live your life the only way you can. We’ve only got one. Don’t waste it.

A Letter To Me On My 23rd Birthday 

Dear Me,

It’s another year that we survived. Another year we doubted at times, but none the less here we are. You may not be the prettiest and we know I’m not the brightest, but I am enough. I am good enough. I am smart enough, I am brave enough, and I am tough enough. We’ve beaten self harming and an eating disorder. We’ve been knocked down time and time again and we’re still standing. So, let them think and say what they want. Let them mock because they don’t understand and never will. We just keep on believing and keep on trying. We’ll be alright. Here’s to the next 23 years.

I love you and happy birthday,
Alyssa
