girls and birds

anonymous asked:

how do you deal with insecurities? you're absolutely stunning and truly seem like a genuine and amazing person, did you ever feel insecure about your height? i've been dealing with a lot of low self-esteem regarding my height how do you embrace it and feel good about it?

Ooooooh boy, I’ve dealt with the CRAZIEST insecurities and let me name a few just so you know I’m not bull shitting. I’ve been told I have a mushroom head, I need to go grow some cheek bones, my nose is too big and wide, I would look better 10 lbs lighter, my figure is too sexy, I’m too commercial, I’m too editorial, that I look like a giraffe, my fingers are too long, my feet are ugly. All of high school people called me giraffe girl or big bird, I learned to rock it and once I did that people didn’t know how to bring me down. Trust me I’ve been there like you wouldn’t believe, especially living in LA where everyone around you is getting their “quick fix” with Botox and plastic surgery, it depressed me for a very long time. I didn’t know how to feel beautiful or what was beautiful. I then humbled myself and realized there are people out there that have it way worse than I do, that sitting around and moping about my physical appearance isn’t going to get me far or help me feel any better. What did help though was working out twice a day, eating clean and finding what makes me happy which is shooting street photography and spending a lot of time with myself. This may come off strange but I actually talk to myself and tell myself how amazing and blessed I am. The more you put that out there it’s only inevitable for you to feel some sense of happiness in return. I hope this helped and I hope you find your happiness soon love ❤️

Funny thing… I was just thinking of Bellatrix LeStrange and realizing that while I grew up with this Helena Bonham Carter…

y’all mainly know this one, or variations thereon…

And then I realized, hey, so that would mean that when Bellatrix was first a Death Eater and tortured Neville’s parents, she would have been a sweet-faced little demon who looked like this…

And maybe at Hogwarts in her day…

And that’s actually even creepier, honestly.
