I found this lovely quote by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey and have found it very encouraging, sweet, and true! I hope you enjoy it!
“It seems to be the fashion nowadays for a girl to behave as much like a man as possible. Well, I won’t! I’ll make the best of being a girl and be as nice a specimen as I can: sweet and modest, a dear, dainty thing with clothes smelling all sweet and violety, a soft voice, and pretty, womanly ways. Since I’m a girl, I prefer to be a real one.”
