My personal motto is never be ashamed of something that keeps you alive. That's what I've stuck with. My tubes are my lifeline and without them I would literally drop dead.
When people think that your size is bigger than your talent, screw 'em. When people talk about your clothes instead of your songs, screw 'em. When people tweet negative crap about you instead of sharing your awesome, screw 'em.
Love is a strong thing, but in today's world it's a term we use rather often and loosely. It's thrown out in corridors, at the ends of teasing jokes, splashed across the Internet on birthdays or late night conversations with just about anyone.
I've been told that in the darkest nights, the brightest stars are seen. Five years ago, the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 was one of those nights.
I've learned that it's okay to be different. It's okay to not blend in. I'm that person you can pick out of a crowd whether it's because I'm the loudest person in the room or because I've barely grown my hair back.
The truth is that each of us can have a greater, stronger, longer-lasting effect on our self-esteem than the cultural influences -- negative or positive -- we encounter. How? True confidence actually grows from adopting various self-esteem-boosting habits over time.

I know you probably have your countdown set until the summer begins and are slowly finding your motivation lessening as your Netflix and pizza intake is increasing. That's totally normal. However, there are ways to relax while also meaningfully preparing for the future.
There are hard times in life, times when we will bleed, times when we will be left, times when we will be injured and feel like we can't go on, but I've learned how to go on thanks to ballet.
These pictures reflect a small amount of the beautiful people that share selfies each #BlackOutDay, but I hope they inspire you the way they inspire me.
It's a lot harder to get older and no longer be seen as a member of my own family unless I have a neon sign above my head telling the public we're related.
I was shaking and the room was slightly spinning. Wearing an outfit that I had meticulously picked out, I found myself standing in front of the woman, who without knowing it, helped craft the person I am today.
I'm tired of having to walk someone through a panic attack over text. Not because I don't want to help them, but because they deserve better than "take deep breaths and think of puppies."
Cara is the perfect actress to play Margo because not only is her American accent dull and average, but it's perfect for a character you're not supposed to really figure out at all. That's the whole point.
We don't like it when the press ask female celebrities about their bodies, but so far, everyone seems fine with this. Am I the only one who thinks it's a little uncomfortable? I'm 17 and I still wouldn't ask them that because we aren't friends, and it's none of my business.
