“To be beautiful means to be yourself.Source: Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Power
You don’t need to be accepted by others.
You need to accept yourself.
When you are born a lotus flower,
be a beautiful lotus flower,
don’t try to be a magnolia flower.
If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself
to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life.
True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself,
having confidence in yourself.”
