Growing up , I was free-spirited. I was scared of nothing, I would bring in my horses from my back yard and have lunch with them in my laundry room while I sat on top of the washing machine , I would take my pet snake out of its aquarium and let it roam around in my room while my mom was asleep (she really didn’t like me doing that ) but I was so fearless. I played soccer for a few years up until my freshman year of high school, I tried out for plays, I liked being around different types of people , I got along with just about everybody, But behind all that I was consistently being bullied, being told I was ugly, Fat , I got called “thunder thighs” and I have been told I was not meant to be on this earth several times. I got harassed , followed home , jumped, threatened . I struggled with self harm starting in 6th grade up to my junior year. I felt so bad like I was disappointing everyone that I knew. I just started to involve myself with other things like partying, drinking a lot etc. I hated myself for a very long time always feeling like I shouldn’t be here. when I was a junior, I Became home schooled , I figured the bullying would stop because I wasn’t around those people anymore but, I was still dealing with harassment on-line. I started to find myself, I made a tumblr account and I would see all these posts about girls like me who have dealt with the same things I had been dealing with, I started to gain confidence in myself I started being myself and not worrying about what everyone else’s opinions of me where I started to love myself and my body. that’s how I became to be body positive , and love myself. I made a deal with myself that I would never listen to people sending hatred to other people about their bodies’, ever again. now I’m 23 working fulltime in a salon, my confidence in myself is 100 and I love my body . I love all my curves . I love who I am now and who I am going to be in the future, if you are struggling with any of the same things I have , just know you will find yourself and it always gets better, you are beautiful. every woman on this planet is a goddess , no matter what size color,shape,religion,sexual orientation etc.. you are PERFECT just the way that you are. fuck everyone else’s opinions of you , SLAY GIRL SLAY. post a selfie of you ,let people know that nothing can bring you down . women need to empower other women because self hate is one of the reasons why people are not comfortable to be themselves. Being yourself is the best you , that you can be.
Be confident ,because too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something that we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses ,and it is only when you accept everything you are and aren’t , that you will truly succeed . you are good enough . I am good enough love your body. because its the only one you have .
