hi love☾ I wanted to tell you that you are very cute and I loooove your personality, and also your videos and your instagram...but, can I ask you for advice? I know you said in your q&a that you have been trough rough times and I was wondering what helped you to become more postive/happy/confident? (I dont have depression but I've been kinda sad lately) thank you so muchh

Well for me what helped was cutting allllll the negativity out of my life. This mostly included people that treated me badly. And surround yourself only with things that make you happy. Throw away anything that brings back sad or negative memories. Toss those old depressing journals, burn those haunting photos.
Also just keep in mind, nothing is ever as bad as it seems. Humans have the tendency to freak out over little things when we don’t need to. You’re failing a class? Not the end of the world, don’t stress so much. Everything is temporary, and that includes sadness. So things will get better! xo

Battling my weight has always been somewhat of a common occurrence for me. I’ll go through periods when I don’t care what I look like or what others think about me and other times I’ll hesitate to leave the house. Our society puts so much emphasis on the way people should look, how we should eat, how we should be. Even the people closest to you seem to always have an opinion about your body.

For me, sometimes I feel like my head is drowning. All of these phrases and labels are thrown around and are essentially pushed down our throats. How am I supposed to form any sort of opinion about myself? How am I supposed to love who I am when all I know of myself is what I hear through other people’s mouths?

My second Insecurity piece for my Love Thy Self series. I’m so proud of this one and it’s all true. These are direct quotes I’ve heard from people I know, magazines, tv, etc. It just seems to be never-ending and it can be hard to keep my head above water sometimes but at the end of the day, deep down, I do love who I am. NOT based on the way I look but I know that I am a good person and that’s all that matters. If you don’t like me because of the way I look then I don’t need you in my life.
