I quit comparing myself to others
and not seeing how beautiful I am.
I quit listening to the opinions of others
and letting them change me.
I quit listening to the internal critic
every time I look into the mirror.
I quit being jealous of other peoples success
and letting it overshadow what I’ve already accomplished.
I quit being too hard on myself
and holding myself to a standard that I will never reach.
I quit looking for validation from other people
and instead I will validate myself.
I quit listening to the people who say I can’t
and will listen to the people who know that I can.
I quit holding myself back because others tell me to
I choose to shine as bright as the stars.
