    Be yourself. No one wants a copy, everybody wants an original. If you aren't the perfect size, weight, or look, WHO CARES? You are beautiful. Who has the right to tell you otherwise? NO ONE. Look at yourself in the mirror, and instead of pointing out your flaws, point out all the good things about you, like maybe your eyes, and from then on, flaunt them!
