Do you think you're fat? Well guess what,
You are not fat
You have fat
You also have fingernails
You are not fingernails
Do you think that you're not pretty? Well guess what,
You are under no obligation to look pretty
Not when you go to the store,
not when you sit in the classroom,
not when you're sitting in your own house,
You are never obligated to dress up to look pretty for others
Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman/man.
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to carry yourself when everyone around you is trying to put you down, that is the strongest thing in the universe. And you, the person whose sitting behind this screen, you are strong and you can do this. I believe in you.
My DMs are open 24/7 if anyone needs to talk to me or just have someone to rant to.
