Feel Good Mama Ru Quotes to Get You Through the Week
When all feels down in the world, there is only one person you can turn to - Mother Ru. RuPaul Andre Charles has built success through being a one-of-a-kind individual, from stunning drag looks to fierce activism, motha has it all.
Throughout 15 seasons of Rupaul’s Drag Race (including All Stars!), we see both sides to this queen – from dishing out some tough loving to being a mentor with a shoulder to cry on. Here at Fizzy we’ve decided to take you through some of the most iconic and meaningful quotes to help your day and help you to possibly to help someone else!
“We’re all born naked and the rest is drag.”
A feel-good quote from the mother of all drag, this basically represents the idea of the falsities of being a drag queen. The campy makeup renders the queens entirely unrecognizable from who they really are, being born naked part means that you’re born vulnerable and that can be a very scary thing. So, through life, we add layer upon layer of personality, of the makeup of anything to hide our vulnerability! You’re not wrong for doing this, in fact, we’re all drag queens in some way. THE. REST. IS. DRAG.
“The biggest obstacle I ever faced was my own limited perception of myself.”
We truly are our own obstacles in life sometimes, whether you’re too scared to speak to that person you are totally in love with or you can’t find the strength to stand up for yourself, we have all been there! Just know you are good enough and that once you truly love and accept yourself, everything will fall into place and you’ll forget why you were ever stressed. Take chances, you’re worth it!
“If you want to be invited to the party, you better have something to bring.”
This refers to you knowing your worth and knowing where you want to be. If you’re going to apply for that job you want and you know you would slay, go in with your head held high and bring your A-Game. You got this sis, you were made to succeed.
“When the going gets tough, the tough reinvent themselves.”
Emotional breakdown? Check. Hair bleach I just bought? Check.
We’ve all had a moment that we wanted to get bangs (or fringe, however you want to say it!) because we’ve felt emotionally down for a bit. Or even bought a jacket we’d never normally wear because we’re going through a phase where we wanted to be a bit goth – and all of this is so fine. Humans were made to be individuals and follow their own pathway, looking like a clone is so not in right now. Be yourself, reinvent yourself, you’re a queen.
“Unless they’re paying your bills, pay them bitches no mind!”
I follow this quote spiritually; I have to say it at least once a week. Unless people in your life are giving you something positive, don’t pay any attention to their opinions. If a friend is giving you a constructive critique, pay attention they’re offering their help – but if some random nobody is sending you to hate for absolutely no reason on Instagram? You’re irrelevant to my life, byeeeeee!
“I feel like you’re being sabotaged by your inner saboteur.”
Oh Katya Zamolodchikova, we love you! If you know this quote then you know that Katya, a contestant in the shows seventh season was suffering with anxiety and not feeling 100% her best. Ru took her to the side and was trying to get to the route of the issue, and it was concluded that Katya was holding herself back because she was scared to succeed. She was stopping herself in her tracks and sabotaging her own success. Once she overcame this, she made it through to the final! Gurl if you’re trying something new in your life, give it 100% and don’t sabotage your own success!
“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”
I had to save the best for last. This is probably Ru’s most iconic quote to date, if you can’t find it in yourself to accept who you are for who you are, how are you going to truly accept someone else? Love starts with loving yourself, you beautiful human. You are amazing and someone is going to see that in you, but you’ve got to see it in yourself! CAN I GET AN AMEN UP IN HERE?
RuPaul changed the way people look at drag queens, RuPaul changed the reality TV show game and Rupaul should be changing the way you see yourself. If these quotes don’t brighten up your day, read them again.
Get through this week, Good luck, and don’t fuck it up!
