We all have our insecurities, but you can’t compare yourself to others. You can only be your own personal best. It’s also exciting that we’re not all supposed to look like a Barbie doll anymore. I wish when I was a little girl I’d had an alternative to Barbie. I remember thinking that’s what you were supposed to look like: big boobs, long legs, the hair. Now there are so many different types being celebrated, and it’s so much better. — from my @healthmagazine November cover story
