Fall is coming 🍁🍃🍂

I am so overwhelmed by the beautiful and inspiring messages that I have received because of that picture I posted of myself. I cannot begin to thank all of the amazing people who sent me words of encouragement, advice, and views on body positivity. I hope that you all find beauty within yourself and own it. Negativity is a waste of time and energy. Having a positive mindset and loving yourself is such an amazing feeling, and I hope that everyone can have that. I know that you all can. I am here for you all. Please message me whenever you want to, about anything.

As long as you're healthy (you seem healthy to me) and feel good no one but yourself should have a word about your appearance, beautiful! Take care

YESSS!! I agree with this so much! Thank you for saying this. Your words are so inspiring and I hope that you continue to have these views, because I believe that more people should realize that it doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say, as long as YOU are happy and confident.

I’ve been debating on how to respond to this message, and I am sorry that it has taken awhile. But I want you to know that I appreciate what you said so much, but I never want you to feel like you should be anyone else but yourself. I spent so much of my life wanting to look like This celebrity, or That singer, and thinking that they were perfect. And then I realized that there is no such thing as perfect, and that I should never want to have someone else’s body. Instead of wanting my body, or anyone elses, praise the body you have! You are beautiful exactly the way you are. And it DOES mean a lot to me, more than you know. Your words are inspiring and they mean so much to me. Thank you for sending me this message darling.

Thank you my dear for being so kind! It means the world to me :) 

I am done with feeling bad about myself because I don’t fit into other people’s molds of beauty. I no longer want to feel like I have to lose 30 pounds to get attention from a boy, or to make my parents proud of me. This is my body, and I am allowed to be proud of the way it is. Whether I am skinnier or bigger than how I am now, it won’t matter, because the important part is to love myself no matter how I look. Self-loathing is tiring and lonely. I want to be able to love myself no matter how I look. And I think everyone should be able to love themselves and not be ashamed of how they look, whether its their face, their hair, their stomach, their legs, or anything else. You are all lovely. Don’t be defined by what other people expect from you.
