I know many of us have had to deal with teasing and harassment over the hobbies we dearly love. People may say you're "too old" to participate in certain hobbies. They may accuse you of being silly and childish for doing so. But, just remember, you should never feel ashamed of your hobbies. They are part of you and make up who you are as a person. Don't feel ashamed, embarrassed, or sorry for the things you love. Continue doing what you love, always.
It's okay to still be planning and thinking about the future. It's alright to still be figuring things out. We all go through life at our own pace. So, take all the time you need and take life on at your own pace. Rest assured, you'll have everything figured out when you're ready to be at that point.
Even on the toughest days, remember that you're not alone. Other people are there for you and care about you, even if you don't realize it. There will always be those who love and care for you. There will always be those who understand what you're going through. Forever hold onto that knowledge and know that you are both supported and loved.
You're amazing and beautiful just as you are. There isn't any other person in the world quite like you, and that's a truly wonderful aspect of life. So, know who you are and be at peace with who that person is. Be happy and confident in your own skin, for you're already the perfect you.
You're a beautiful, amazing, talented, and unique person. Without a doubt, you are worthy of kindness, love, and everything positive in this world. You are deserving and worthwhile. You are so much more than your flaws. So, never believe that you're unworthy or only seen for your imperfections.
