It’s time to celebrate this spooky Friday the 13th with the birthday of one of our favorite vampires, Candice Accola!
When Candice Accola — now Candice King — made her first big splash, it was in her breakout role on The Vampire Diaries as the perpetually insecure Caroline Forbes.
In her early days, Caroline always felt second best and unloved, and she despaired that she would never be anyone’s first choice. Now, she’s a kick-butt vampire, who doesn’t care whose choice she is. Caroline knows she’s awesome, and she’s not willing to let anyone tell her otherwise.
What better way to celebrate King’s 29th birthday than by listing off some of Caroline Forbes’ most motivational moments? If you ever find yourself in need of encouragement, look no further than Caroline and these self-empowered quotes.
The time she didn’t tolerate mind games
The time she got deep about redemption
The time she refused to abandon her friends
The time she wouldn’t take no for an answer
The time she knew she deserved better
The time she knew how smart she was
The time she was an adorable little worker bee
The time she wouldn’t let anyone shame her for her choices
The time she refused to change who she was
The time she knew she could handle herself
