Yes. Too many people - especially girls - are hardening themselves. They think that being tough and unfeeling equals strength. To me, true strength means not letting other people change who you are. If you are kind, sensitive, compassionate, and feeling, be strong enough and esteem yourself enough that you will never let those virtues go, no matter what the world tries to tell you or do to you.
Be soft - Kurt Vonnegut

"Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves." ~ Drew Barrymore
This quote has been on my mind for a while. Can anyone really make you feel alone? Or do you already feel this way and occasionally encounter those that reinforce that emptiness? Everything you feel, think and see is already within you, attributing it to another person is merely a denial of yourself to yourself.

I love her and that's the beginning and end of everything. F. Scott Fitzgerald
I don't understand this quote. Everything I've struggled with has become a part of who I am. I wouldn't be the person I am today without struggling with everything that I've struggled with. I think it's absolutely amazing how dealing with and overcoming evil, dark things can truly make a person beautiful. I'm proud that my struggles have become part of my identity.
