How to Be an Individual Girl

Staying true to yourself and being who you really are sounds easy, but it's often not. Society and our peers can push and pull us into acting in ways that don't fit with the picture of how we truly see ourselves. If you're a girl who feels pressured to "fit in," don't worry - being a unique individual can be tricky, but it's vastly more rewarding and fulfilling than simply blending in with the crowd.

    Take criticism into account, but don't let it get to you. You will never be truly independent if you feel the need to seek other people's confirmation or acceptance. Instead, seek new ways to improve yourself and become a better person.
