Do not let yourself suffer because you’re so desperate to be beautiful. You do not owe the world beauty. We’re so busy saying things like “Everyone is beautiful” when we should be examining whether or not that even matters. Throw yourself wholeheartedly into your interests and your work and do not forget that your worth is not measured in how attractive other people think you are. I don’t necessarily think it’s bad to desire that kind of attention, but please do not waste your life feeling inadequate when you have so many gifts to offer. Let the world see your talents, your words, your passion, and your actions. Be kind to others and help them when you can. Focus on things that excite you. Experience all that you can. Do not let others define your existence, rather define your own existence. The world is yours, you just have to go out and seize it.

"But remember that the pain of parting from friends will be felt by everybody at times, whatever be their education or state. Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience; or give it a more fascinating name: call it hope."
