Audrey Hepburn on the set of 'Breakfast at Tiffany's”, 1960
"I was in the infantry. We were stationed in Laos when we heard on the radio that the treaty was signed and the war was over. Everyone started celebrating and screaming and lifting each other in the air. None of us cared that we’d lost the war. We were so tired of fighting. When we heard the news, we started waving our arms and celebrating with the same North Vietnamese soldiers that we’d been shooting at the day before. The times had made us fight each other. But we were all still Vietnamese."
(Ho Chi Minh City \ Saigon, Vietnam)
how'd you get confident? and what would recommend to someone with low selfesteem?
This ask made me smile because wow thanks that is such a compliment!!
I’ve just begun to realize that I’m good at some things and I have important things to say and that I shouldn’t apologize for existing?? There’s no one else alive that’s exactly like me and that’s really super cool. I’m really super cool. And so are you!!! Your personality and your experiences are unique and you should be proud of being you.
My friends have also helped a lot because they have been so supportive and have loved me unconditionally throughout the years. I think people are one of the main ways God shows His love to us because if some broken and flawed people can love me that much, I can’t even imagine how much a holy and perfect God can love me.
I really hope you have awesome friends like that, but if not, I would love to be that for you! You are awesome and you deserve to know that. (: I love you, friend!!
