"be yourself. if you water yourself down to please people or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom, and they joy of being uniquely you. it's much easier to love yourself when you are being yourself.
No matter how well you think you carry yourself, if you do not value yourself it will show. And you'll be treated by what people perceive you as. Know who you are and be confident in it. Know your worth and act on it.
