“Girls can be athletic. Guys can have feelings. Girls can be smart. Guys can be creative. And vice versa. Gender is specific only to your reproductive organs (and sometimes not even to those), not your interest, likes, dislikes, goals, and ambitions.”

“I don’t want anyone to hold back who they are. It’s not okay… it’s not a good thing.”

“I don’t want anyone to be afraid. I don’t anyone to hold back who they are.”

“I feel like our generation is just so obsessed with the idea of perfection and we don’t need to be.”

“I had dreams. And I had to pursue them; otherwise my soul would have shriveled. The hardest part was allowing myself to want something other than what was socially acceptable, telling myself to go after it, then actually doing it.”

“I love how pop culture shapes a generation. The trends, fashion and events all play a key part in how we live our present lives, and will mark how we will be remembered in the future.”

“I refuse to live a life of regret. I refuse to hope things will get better in the future when I have complete control over making them the best possible right here and now. We have one life-and none of us knows how long our life will be or what will become of it. The possibilities are truly infinite.”

“I think good taste is completely subjective. If you enjoy something, that’s great! Enjoy it and don’t let anyone tell you not to.”

“I would rather have 1 amazing best friend than 100 decent regular friends. It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality.”

“If you know anyone struggling with his or her sexuality, the best thing you can do is be there for them, respect the process and treat them the same as you always would. It helps so much to know you’re not alone.”

“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.”

“Move at your own pace, don’t be afraid – and know that it’s going to be okay.”

“My childhood home was a large, light-blue, two-story house with a big front yard to play in.”

“Once we learn to accept who we are, imperfections and all, then – and only then – can we achieve our full potential. Forget about negative self-image and self-judgement. It’s about self-love, an no one teaches you that at school. No one teaches you that if you accept and love yourself, nothing and no one can touch you. ”

“Question: Why does life have to feel like such a struggle at times? Answer: Because without the struggle, the triumphs wouldn’t taste as sweet.”

“Race, gender, religion, sexuality, we are all people and that’s it. We’re all people. We’re all equal.”

“So let other people apply the labels, but don’t let that label become your straightjacket. In fact, use the opportunity to take those labels and redefine them. Enhance it. Expand on it. Break through the barriers and limitations. Carve out an identity that is unique to you. Don’t agree to be marked, filed, and put into a box that will hinder your true potential.”

“Sometimes we lose sight of why we’re doing what we’re doing. We get sick of certain aspects of our lives and forget the end goal. But everything has a purpose. There is a reason behind every struggle, and I finally stood mine.”

“That’s the downside of growing up. There’s a lot of pretending involved. We frequently act like someone other than who we really are because we don’t know or aren’t comfortable with our true selves.”

“The sun looks different from when it rises to when it sets.”

“The thing about the internet is we take everything too far. Once something becomes “popular” in our realm, it’s everywhere, and I get sick of hearing about it quickly.”

“This is just one little part of who I am, and I’m not gonna let my sexuality define or confine me. It’s part of me, it’s not all of me.”

“True friendship is counted in memories, experiences, and troubles shared; its a bond built up over time in person, not a virtual tally on the internet. It finds you; you don’t find it.”

“Who are you? Answer; you are who you are in this given moment. Label-less. Limitless. Remember that from this day forward.”
“Why tomorrow when there is today?”
