I always felt like I wasn’t pretty enough, good enough, or smart enough to be someone in life. One of the great parts of growing up for me is realizing that when you’re in a relationship with someone, egotistical or romantic, or whatever, it’s usually when someone makes you feel like you’re not good enough, it’s because they’re not’ I don’t feel like they’re good enough themselves. “
