Shailene Woodley

One day I was having one of my teenage crisis, when you think everything’s falling apart your oestrogen and progesterone are freaking out. And my grandmother said, ‘Shai, the most important thing in life is self-love. You’ve gotta take care of yourself and you’ve gotta live from your deep heart.’ I’ve come to determine that deep heart is my compassion, empathy and intuition. because your intuition never wants to be mean to somebody. Your intuitively know that another human being on this planet is hurting just as badly as you may be. The way that they express themselves could be rude or seen as douche or whatnot. But maybe they’re scared or had no one there to support them.

“I want to say that when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told I was different and I felt out of place, too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. and then one day I realized something, something that I hope you all realize – DIFFERENT is good. When someone tells you that you are different smile and hold your head up and be proud”

Ansel Elgort

” I went through a lot bullying in middle school and it made me so upset all the time. I hated everything. I live in New York City in a high building with a little terrace. I’d go on the terrace and I’d look off the terrace and I literally just thought about jumping off because I hated living so much. It does make it so hard when your that age and everyone is being mean to you at school and you have to go to school every day and deal with people being mean to you. You feel like what you have to say isn’t important and that you’re not important. The way I coped with it was making another group of friends outside of that group of people who were mean to me so that i had some sort of support system. Then I focused all my energy on acting and dancing and singing and music so that I felt like I had a purpose that sort of took me out of it and made me forget about it a little bit and it made it a lot better.”

Sandra Bullock

I was rejected in school because I didn’t look like the big-breasted, beautiful girls. I was awkward and sad. My mother always said, “Be original!” but I didn’t understand until I changed to be like everyone else. Once I fit in, I was like, What have I done? I realized that my friends before were much cooler, with a great sense of humour and a way of looking at the world that was more fun. But if I hadn’t gone through that, I wouldn’t have been driven to make my oddities cool. It’s what made me have a sense of humour and thick skin.
