"You can be amazing, you can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug. You can be the outcast or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love, or you can start speaking up. Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do when they settle ‘neath your skin. Kept on the inside and no sunlight, sometimes a shadow wins, but I wonder what would happen if you say what you wanna say and let the words fall out. Honestly, I wanna see you be brave." Sara Bareilles - Brave

Gold by Britt Nicole: “So don't let anybody tell you that you're not loved and don't let anybody tell you that you're not enough. Yeah there are days that we all feel like we're messed up, but the truth is that we're all diamonds in the rough. So don't be ashamed to wear your crown. You're a king, you're a queen, inside and out. You glow like the moon, you shine like the stars, this is for you, wherever you are.”
