I would rather be the plainest girl who’s ever lived and admired for my wit and strength and spirit, than have beauty beyond compare, but nothing inside to offer the world.
That’s not what society teaches little girls. That’s not what it thinks should matter. Not what it places value on.
But society can think whatever it wants, because it doesn’t get to tell me how to define my own worth. Or what makes me beautiful.
Only I get to do that.
