Never be ashamed for who you are . The only shame in life is to have that feeling in your heart . Always stand up for what you believe in . Always question what other people tell you . Never regret the past , its a waste of your time . You cant change it , you can only learn from it . Theres a reason for every mistake , every moment of weakness every terrible thing that has happened to you . Grow because of it . The only way you will ever get the respect of others is when you truly have respect for yourself . Most importantly , do your own thing and NEVER apologize for being YOU !
