When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.
Stevie Nicks (via bmurguia)
Feeling beautiful has nothing to do with what you look like. I promise.
Emma Watson (via ohdreaming)
I rarely found myself beautiful, although sometimes I thought I might be if I were carefully groomed and polished and the light was just right. Always aware of every flaw, I felt a terrible gap between the way the world perceived me and the way I felt about myself.
