Sadly, Lana Del Rey and her music have often been misunderstood in the past. However, she managed to build a successful career despite that. She’s come a long way since her debut album — from utter melancholia and drug abuse, to happiness and fulfillment in life.

The truth is — Lana’s struggle is what made her who she is today. She is here to remind us of our dark sides, of the wars in our minds, as well as the powers we hold inside of us.

I sincerely hope that these Lana Del Rey quotes inspired you to become a strong and unapologetic woman that you deserve to be.
