elizabeth-charae:when i look at myself, i see so much more then just the body I am in. It saddens me that it’s not something i am able to share with just anybody. I’ve heard my whole life “boys will be lining up at the door for you if you just lose 50lbs”, “you’re beautiful, but you’d be more beautiful if you’d lose weight”, “you’d be so much happier if you were thinner”, “suck your belly in, you look fatter”.
those things among many others have hindered me for so long. I feel now, like so much more. More than just a body. More than being anything that makes anybody else happy other then myself.
I’m tired of being told i’m flawed.
i’m just not like you.
