A shoutout to everyone with stretch marks that are not nearly invisible, that don’t get praised in romantic ways on a pink sparkly positivity edit, that don’t look like a “perfect imperfection”
Deep purple stretch marks? Large stretch marks? Stretch marks in places where people are not used to them being? Stretch marks that look like scars? Stretch marks that are super visible and cause people to stare? Stretch marks that are nothing but ugly in your eyes?
All of them are normal. And if you’ll never think of them as cute or romantic, that’s okay. You don’t have to adore every single inch of your skin. You can still be beautiful as a whole, even if your stretch marks are “ugly” to you.
