NowThis Kids — Self-Acceptance and Loving Who We Are

As we show kindness to others, it’s just as important to show kindness to ourselves.

"It’s okay to take a step back, take a deep breath, and just stay in the moment and be present," explains Perri Easley, a student member of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.

The foundation encourages kids to accept themselves for who they are while promoting a kinder and braver world. Perri says it’s a reminder that we must validate young people’s emotions and eliminate mental health stigma.

Being comfortable with who you are starts with knowing yourself, being accepting of change, and not giving into peer pressure.
