No one else is like you.

Everyone struggles with self-confidence and longs to find out who they really are but it’s not as easy as it sounds.

We have all experienced insecurities and questioned our worth from an early age. Supposedly, this kind of self-doubt ends after high school or college and you emerge a confident and unshakeable human being with no major flaws.

Not.

We face this kind of self-doubt in every stage of our lives. Finding out who you are isn’t easy in the first place, and being confident enough to just be authentically who you were meant to be at all times is almost impossible. We are constantly surrounded by the pressures of society and are left comparing ourselves to the people around us.


The simple fact of the matter is that being yourself is a lifelong struggle, although some phases of life may be harder than others. There’s no point where we just click into ourselves and become automatically confident in everything that we are. There’s no magic confidence potion, I’ve looked (although I have to confess, tequila comes as close as anything).

Being a human being is all about building the life you want and becoming who you want to be. You’ll undoubtedly make a million mistakes along the way, doubt yourself at every turn, and get lost in your own hopes for yourself but that’s OK! That’s part of being human! The most important thing is to keep chipping away at it, to keep growing and to keep trying. You’re a work in progress. 

When you need a little inspiration to be unapologetically you, turn to quotes. Words from others who have gone through exactly what you have are often an easy source of motivation.

Here are 30 quotes to remind you to always be yourself!


1. You are you for a reason.

2. No one else is like you.

3. Don’t be afraid to be different.

“It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.” — Hans Hansen

4. You can’t compete with one-of-a-kind.

5. You’re irreplaceable.

“Own who you are.” — Unknown

6. Let your beauty shine.

“Beauty begins the moment you

19 Quotes About How To Deal With Judgmental People That Prove You Should Never Care About What Everyone Else Thinks

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Society is so judgemental.

When I was younger, I was well known for being the quiet one in any given group. I preferred my books to the people around me, making more time to read than anything else. In fact, when I was in sixth grade, my English teacher at the time pulled me out of class to suggest I read a little less and told me my reading habits were the reason I didn’t have many friends. Ironic, right?

I’m one of those people who grew up quickly, maturing faster than my peers and blessed with the intelligence to back myself up. I was nerdy, with big plastic framed glasses. I dressed like a PTA mom at age 12 and loved musical theater more than anything. I was an easy, gawky target. 

If you were to flash forward a few years and drive about 2 hours north, you’d find me a quarter away from graduating from the college of my dreams and living it up with my friends in spare seconds. 


I’m explaining this because I’ve been teased, bullied, and mocked my whole life.

When I was younger, it was over the stupid little things. In some instances, I look back and laugh, almost agreeing with my bullies. Those glasses were the opposite of a fashion statement and I was totally pretentious and snobby. 

I thought it would end after high school. That’s what everyone told me. Instead, outright bullying turned into whispered judgments and accusations. My ripped jeans became a neon sign that I was a “whore”, my weekends spent with my long distance boyfriend translated to me sleeping around, my occasional screwdrivers with roommates meant that I was a party animal. The first time I was drunk, my ex accused me of being an alcoholic. My willingness to speak for feminist issues signified the fact that I was actually a child hater who wanted to tear down the institution of marriage. Me choosing to go to college meant I would never settle down. 

We see these judgments ALL THE TIME — and I’m sick of it.

You could probably share a similar story, one in which choices you made came back to reflect on you in a way more negative way than they were intended. It happens in seconds, and then it’s too late to fix.

Society is a judgemental place. Things are done a certain way, …
