"Was there a time that you had to learn to love yourself?"
"Yes. In a time when somebody is different, like I am, you have to learn to accept everything that is different about yourself and learn to *love* it, and not just tolerate it, but embrace it and walk in your differentness. There was definitely a time that the things that were different about me, I hated and wished I could change them. And it wasn't until I fully embraced my differentness and started to love my differentness that it started to change other people, and it turned out to be more of a blessing to others than to myself."
