"I'm very outspoken about my Christian faith, and I actually face a lot of pressure from others within the faith," she writes. "When I was on Dancing with the Stars, for example, I was constantly hearing from people who thought that my costumes weren’t appropriate. On Fuller House, people were sad that my character made certain choices. Even with The View, people say I’m not speaking up enough for conservative values and that I allow myself to get walked on. Everyone has an opinion!"

Cameron Bure is happy sticking to her own boundaries, she writes, and works not to be bothered when her choices draw criticism. "I’ve found that people really do respect when you hold true to your convictions and what you value," she says. "So you just have to learn to let the comments go and not take them personally, even if they’re well-intentioned. When I’m having issues or facing a big decision I’m unsure about, I talk with the people who are closest to me, whom I trust and who know my situation. That’s where I seek guidance, along with prayer, not from the masses." So, basically, it's not worth tweeting at Candace Cameron Bure that you don't like her outfit. OK?
