Remember, change is good. “Don’t be scared of it. Swallow your fears and go for that class election or debate team spot, and don’t worry about what people will think. If a friend doesn’t want you to grow, she’s not your real friend.” - Haley Kilpatrick, founder of the Girl Talk mentoring program
Be your own best friend. “You need to have your own back. That’s true self-acceptance. Think of what your best friend would say to you, and say that to yourself. She would tell you, ‘Your hair looks great today!’ or ‘Don’t worry about that test. You tried your best.’” - Leslie Grubb, a happiness coach who runs self-esteem workshops for teens
