Confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without needing someone to tell you.
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.
