Rita Mae Brown

Weigh the pros and cons of conformity, and then ask yourself what’s worth more? Genuine self-love and self-acceptance, or love from other people that’s based on a lie? Obviously the first one! While it’s definitely difficult to sacrifice other relationships, honestly friendships with people so shallow and close-minded are not worth keeping! You’ll find a much more accepting community when you tell the truth to others and yourself.
