I’m not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.
A little penguin encouragement to support you when you need some motivation. :D <3
If I could, I’d send a message to all those little girls like me down south: Work hard in school and less on your hair. Don’t grow up thinking that boys are better than you, or you might spend your whole life trying to convince yourself otherwise. Try to avoid appearing on video from ages 11-23, but if you must, look the camera dead-on, summon all the integrity you have, and speak with confidence. Other little girls are watching.
Love your body!
If society does not find fault in a woman’s talent, competence or intelligence, they will attack her appearance. To criticize a woman for her looks is their weak last ditch attempt to remind her she is unworthy. To keep someone down you must push them so they can never get up. Confidence and perseverance are the first steps to conquering the world because to conquer the world you must first reclaim yourself as an individual worthy and capable of doing things greater than they imagined.
If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?
