A lot of us seem to forget that it’s okay to stand up for what you believe in and speak out. What society and/or others think doesn’t matter. An example is that I support gay marriage and I don’t care if the rest of the world doesn’t. Your beliefs are your own and they shouldn’t be tainted by others, so don’t buy that overpriced shirt just because the popular kids at school are wearing it. If someone bullies your best friend, don’t stand down just because you don’t want to look bad. Follow your heart and do what you think is right. People may put you down, but that shouldn’t affect you. You should always “say what you want and do what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” So stand up for your beliefs with your head up high and your shoulders back. Be proud of what you think.
To all of you out there (boys and girls) struggling because you want to fit into those size 0 skinny jeans or bikini, STOP. Just STOP doing this to yourself. It’s not worth it and sure, you may think that being skinny will bring you everything you want in life but it’s not true! Trust me, if you want to be skinny so people will look at you, you’ll only end up with fakes. You don’t want the people who will only talk to you or look at you (boys or girls) because you have a thigh gap or abs (or both). You don’t want to be friends with those kinds of people! The people you want around you are those who don’t care about how much you weigh, what you eat, or if your thighs touch or not. If a guy or girl wouldn’t date you because you don’t have a thigh gap, you don’t have abs, your collarbones don’t show, or anything like that then he or she is the one missing out. Be proud of who you are and how you’re built! You are perfect no matter how much you weigh! You don’t need to starve yourself or anything like that to be happy. Want proof? Listen to the audio on my tag /skinnywhat. This is the link. You don’t need skinny to be happy. You need to appreciate yourself just the way you are and surround yourself with people who love you just the way you are and want you to be yourself. Before anyone can love you, YOU need to love yourself. “We accept the love we think we deserve.”
Please, stay strong. If you need to talk, I’m always here for you.
I know that a lot of you think that the most important things in life are certain sizes of your body, but that’s not true! Society tends to make people feel that way, but there’s no need. You’re perfect no matter what and what matters is your happiness and you loving yourself. You need to just be happy with yourself because your goal shouldn’t be to impress anyone else; it should be to make yourself content. You can’t ever make everyone happy, either, so why try? So please, don’t look in the mirror and think wow, my boobs are too small. Dang, where is my ass? I’m not skinny enough. I need abs. NONE OF THAT IS TRUE! YOU. ARE. PERFECT. AND WORTH IT. AND AMAZING. AND GORGEOUS. AND YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING. AND I LOVE YOU.
P.S. I LOVE YOU AND CARE ABOUT YOU ALWAYS, SO YOU CAN ALWAYS COME TALK TO ME. Click here for more on how much I love you and that link will lead you to this.
Please, just be happy with yourself and your life.
Please don’t delete the text! It’s rude and I know how to figure out who did it!
Please ignore the marker ink on my finger :). More importantly, don’t change who you are just because other people try to put you down. They’re just jealous of how absolutely fantabulous you are! Keep on shining and ignore the haters. You’re perfect just the way you are, no matter what.
