In Sex And The City, Samantha Jones show us that there is a plethora of examples that show us what confidence looks like. You know, the kind of this-is-me-and-I-don't-give-a-crap-what-people-think-of-me. It's owning your personality, body, your profession, you. Its not making any apologies for loving yourself.
See, Samantha understands. Gossip happens and will happen. For it to lose its power on you, you've just need to live your life and keep it moving.
No matter your shape, size, height, or age -- rock everything that you have.
This quote is my bible. Love yourself to know when you deserve better or more. Be in a place where you love yourself enough to respect yourself.
