remember in elementary school we picked dandelions and gave them to someone like a bouquet of flowers? back then we didn't know they are worthless weeds, only that they are vibrant and beautiful. i guess that's the best part of innocence, you see things for what they are - not what they're supposed to be
No matter how many time they try to tell you with more than just their words that you are not beautiful. Do not for a second believe them, and never ever cast someone aside because you cannot find their beauty the moment you look at them.
