Advice I Would Give My 20-Something Self

Be kind to yourself, and remember that you don’t have to be perfect. No one is perfect, and our imperfections are part of what makes us unique and beautiful. There is always room to grow and learn from our experiences. You are stronger and more capable than you think you are.
