“ The earth was overwhelmed with beauty and indifferent to it, and I went with a heart ready to crack for its unbearable loveliness. ”
Josephine Winslow Johnson, Now in November
the first step towards confidence is not being afraid to be ugly
once you get over the fear of being unattractive and stop equating beauty with other good things in life (friends, love, happiness) it’s a lot easier to love yourself unconditionally
your job is not to sit around and be pretty and easy on everyone else’s eyes
your job is to do whatever the fuck you want and look however the fuck you want while doing it
photoshop before & after of stars PRAISED FOR THEIR BEAUTY. ughhhhsflsdlekgh even they can’t win.
spread the word: the beauty standards set forth by hollywood, the fashion industry, the advertising industry, and other forms of mainstream media aren’t obtainable by anybody.
If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important Rule of Beauty.
“Who cares?” ― Tina Fey, Bossypants
“ One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it. ”
“ I’m not beautiful, I don’t care. One thing women don’t know is that you don’t have to be beautiful. You don’t have to be beautiful to fuck anyone you want. ”
“ I’ve always had a terrible weakness for beautiful but sad things. ”

“ I look at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world ”
