Life is full of new things coming and having to walk into that, and in my experience, my life has been full of that. I mean, I moved away across the country when I was 18 […] It was scary but that’s what the good stuff comes from. The best stuff comes from those times when you challenge yourself and step out of your comfort zone, and you walk into somebody else; you walk into the person that you’re gonna be. If you just stay in one place for the rest of your life, that’s where you’re gonna be.Lights [x]
It pisses me off that if you are a girl with a moderately pretty face you are supposed to sound a certain way. They try to flatter you and say you have the potential to be this massive star, but that’s not what it’s all about. It is offensive when people try to take away your artistic integrity, but you gotta fight for it.Lights Poxleitner [x]
People are like, ‘Oh, if I don’t turn off a light, it’s not going to make a difference, it’s only one person.’ It’s like how they feel when they download a record: ‘It doesn’t really matter if just one person does it,’ but it’s single-handedly ruining the music industry. You have to look at the bigger picture.Lights Poxleitner (via aadeliae)
I never really had a place in high school. I just made some friends here and there, but focused on what I loved to do and tried not to let everything that was around get me down.Lights Poxleitner (via lightsfacts)

I mean… if I’m wearing a flowery dress I’m going to feel less like I can kick somebody’s ass than if I have combat boots on, you know? And I personally wanna go about life like I can kick ass.
You have to be uncomfortable in order to be successful, in some ways, because if you stay in your comfort zone, you would never do the things that you need to do.
Be what you love. Do what you love. Just feel comfortable in your own skin.Lights
“It’s important for young people currently being bullied to know that, and that people they look up to now may have also been bullied back then. That being bullied is a temporary state and that, to paraphrase the anti-homophobia campaign, it does get better.”
