Wherever you go, walk with your head held high. You’re not a waste of space. You’re not what’s “wrong” with our society. You’re not what they say you are. Don’t let other people’s negativity make you forget how wonderful you are. You are loved and I’m glad you’re here with me.
Happy Big Girl Appreciation day, Queen! Let’s live to slay another day! XD
Sometimes, we lose ourselves by focusing on where we could be, instead of appreciating how far we’ve come. We all have different attributes and physical features that make us beautiful. I wish we would celebrate that more than making others feel less. Compliment a random stranger; Take time to make people feel loved. The world needs more kindness, not hatred.
Waaaaaaaait 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 This photo embodies how much fucks I don’t give to naysayers. To Islamaphobes. To people who like to comment on how I promote obesity and fat shame me regularly, saying I’d be much cuter if I was ‘smaller’. To the people who say I’m not Muslim enough. To the people who slide into my inbox saying how they wanna do lunch but wasn’t with me when I was down, out, and had no self-worth but now find me 'of value’ now that I got a little media play. To the people who told me that there was enough writers already and to get a 'real’ job. To the people who used to be my friends but went ghost because of their own insecurities. And to the folks that just plain don’t like me because I slay super easily. Heeeeeey 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾Photo: @remy_me Model: Leah Vernon Turban: @flossyssuitcase
