Category: Feel good about yourself

Lily Collins


“As a human being, I’m constantly evolving and growing, and I’m going to have insecurities. To embrace our emotions and share with other people, we all feel less alone in our struggles. What makes me most happy is being with the people that I love and just knowing that being who I am is enough. Because I know I can take that anywhere.” People Magazine

“I have to forgive myself for the things that I did that I’m not proud of, the choices that I made that worked against me. Self-love is really about boundaries. Learning what you’re comfortable with and putting up the boundaries, not being afraid of the consequences. Knowing that in taking care of yourself, everything will turn out okay, that people will treat you the way you want to be treated and your life will feel good to you.” Vogue

“I don’t think you need a lot of products to feel clean and beautiful. We all want to be attractive to somebody, and it doesn’t have to take so much. It’s interesting what sticks around in your head when you think about beauty. Because when you’re going on a date or out to the movies and you’re seeing your crush, you think about what you’re going to look like. It’s never as good in person, but you still feel beautiful anyway. When you love somebody, you just don’t see what they look like. You don’t pay attention.”  allure

“Another thing I remember was I was so eager to clear the negative people. Any negative people or toxic energy, I was like, ‘They gotta go!’ Between what I was actually taking into my body and what I was energetically taking into my body, I remember that it was a huge catalyst to starting to have better skin. That’s where this idea of ‘soul care’ started to dawn on me and make sense. In so many ways our confidence truly does affect how we appear to others and to ourselves and how we walk in the world what you bring with you, your spirit and your energy. We talk about skin care and hair care and nail care and body care and all the cares, but we never talk about soul care, and that’s what makes you the most beautiful. When I’m lighting a candle I always set an intention. In my head I’ll just say, Today, I’m going to feel more joy than I ever felt. If it’s in the evening, Tonight, I will relax completely and let everything go that’s worrying me. I really learned how to believe in things like that. That’s something I didn’t know for a long time because I was always trying to hold things in or protect myself or not give away too much. I didn’t realize in a lot of ways I was not being clear about what it was I needed. If I’ve had a hard day, or hard week, or I’m feeling extra judgmental or dealing with a lot, I will set the intention, Today, I’m going to have ultimate clarity about what I need. You can make an intention and ask for whatever you need to receive.” Allure

“When I was getting started in acting, my coaches gave me some advice that’s been important in every single aspect of my life. They said all I needed was to embrace the real me. As an actress, that led me to opening up about my ASD with the world, but it’s advice that applies to everything we do. No matter who you are, or what you want to do in life, embracing the real you is the first step to making your dreams come true. When you’re true to yourself with people who really believe in your potential anything is possible. I’m proof.” GL

“I didn’t feel beautiful, like for real, not just ‘Hey, I’m pretty’ but actually believing in it until about 2016. If you’ve been beat down mentally by someone, you’re never pretty enough. Nothing’s ever good enough. It’s not just the hairstyles and the clothing and the skin. It’s how I reinvent myself through trials and perseverance. Am I going to quit? No, I’m going to go to the next level because change is hard. But people see me come out and they think, ‘It’s just her skin or her hair.’ No, it’s her. It’s me. I’m really choosing to be a better, stronger person. During Mudbound and when I was married, I was feeling so low. I had to pay myself the highest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up. I would do it in the morning, because that’s the time when your hair is not done and you don’t have on makeup. You’re just kind of dealing with yourself  for real. Good morning, gorgeous. I love you. I got you. I need you.” People Magazine

“The fact that people don’t think what they say affects a celebrity because you’re not a person to them is crazy. I’m a human being. I want to f***ing defend myself. The fact that I’m like, ‘Should I have not worn that?’ No, I do what I want to do, and I make what I want to make, and if I’m now starting to be afraid of what other people are going to say or think, I’m no longer doing my job as an artist. I’m not experiencing the world and putting that into art. I’m walking on eggshells. F*** that. So, I needed to take a minute” ELLE
