No matter what.
And this teenage girl has just reminded everyone on the internet that.
Ashlie Bautista took to Twitter to let everyone know how important it is to love yourself completely.
“So last night, I wore something that I never thought I would wear,” she wrote. “I’m very insecure but with the help of my amazing friends for hyping me up, I was able to wear it and gained a little bit more confidence in myself.”
Ashlie revealed to Teen Vogue, that it was her friends that helped her feel so comfortable in the dress.
“[They] told me that I looked amazing in the dress and that I should wear it out to show everyone that I was beautiful.
“By the end of the night, I was so happy that I wanted my friends to take pictures of me, which they did.”
