The next time you feel you have to defend something about yourself, ask yourself, ‘why am I feeling I must defend this?’
Do not feel you must say anything. Be who you are. Do not try to be perfect all the time.

You don’t need to be
someone else’s universe
to be able to see
that you are a galaxy.

You don’t need to be
someone else’s light
to be able to appreciate
the way you shine.
