  • Don’t let anyone’s judgements get to you or make you feel uncomfortable about yourself.  You know who you are and what you value.
  • Acknowledge that you may have things to work on in regards to self-value and worth so let those things be motivational points of reference.
  • Appreciate the things that stand you out.  Those things specify who you are.
  • Embrace how different you are.  The way you walk, communicate, and express yourself can only be done by you!
