Posted on Jan 03, 2017

It's not easy to have a lot of self-esteem when there is a constant pressure from everywhere to be perfect in every way. And "perfection" is a complicated term. One needs a lot of courage and strength to overcome people's perception (often very strict) of what is beautiful, interesting, and attractive. Here are celebrities who definitely succeeded in doing that.
