The minute you start caring about what other people think, is the minute you stop being yourself.Self-ConfidenceMeryl Streep
Recently I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me: "Mama, I'm the ugliest girl I know. I look like a boy with long hair.' And my brain went to 'Oh my god, you're six. Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a sex-year-old's ass?' But I didn't say anything and instead I went home and I made a PowerPoint presentation for her and in that presentation were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us. And these are artists like Michael Jackson and David Bowie and Freddie Mercury and Annie Lennox and Prince and Janis Joplin and George Michael, Elton John. So many artists, her eyes glazed over. But then I said, 'I really want to know why you feel this way about yourself?' And she said 'Well, I look like a boy.' I said, 'What do you think I look like?' And she said, 'You're beautiful.' And I was like, 'Well, thanks!' But I said, 'When people make fun of me, that's what they use. They say that I look like a boy, or I'm too masculine or I have too many opinions, my body is too strong. Do you see me growing my hair?' She said, 'No, Mama.' I said, 'Do you see me changing my body?"
'Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?"
'Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?"
So baby-girl, we don't change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl and we help other people to change, so that they can see more kinds of beauty. And to all the artists here, I'm so inspired by all of you. Thank you for being your true selves and for lighting the way for us. I'm so inspired by you guys. There's so much rad happening right now in music. Keep doing it. Keep shining for the rest of us to see. And you, my darling girl, are beautiful and I love you.
People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.Happiness, Self-Confidence, TalentFrank Sinatra

I wouldn't change myself for anybody. I am who I am; people accept me, or they don't. I have my strengths and my weaknesses, which I can try to improve upon, of course. I'm still not the finished product.Character, Self-ConfidenceGranit Xhaka
If I respect myself and require that others deal with me respectfully, I send out signals and behave in ways that increase the likelihood that others will respond appropriately. When they do, I am reinforced and confirmed in my initial belief. If I lack self-respect and consequently accept discourtesy, abuse, or exploitation from others as natural, I unconsciously transmit this, and some people will treat me at my self-estimate. When this happens, and I submit to it, my self-respect deteriorates still more.Self-ConfidenceNathaniel Branden in The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem

Then passed right by-
And never knew.
