You are Figgin Awesome 🌱
A pun post from my new friend Tails. Some of you have asked about the hedgehogs that you’ve seen on this account. Some background story: I (Sophia) work as a photographer and Amelia Hedgehog started as a creative project when I moved to Vancouver, Canada to be a photographer. I didn’t know many people in the city back then so I got myself a hedgehog for Christmas in 2014. Amelia was like a business partner, diva, and supportive friend. Amelia passed away last winter and there have been many changes in life and on this account since then.
To me — hedgehogs have always been a special positive force in my life. They have always been there for me and in many ways, they remind me that I am not alone. I hope this account is a source of positive inspo for you and a reminder that you are not alone to pursue your goals and share positive vibes with the universe 💫

so you dated the wrong person and learned a hard lesson. you chose the wrong major and had to start over again. you cherished a friend who backstabbed you. it sucks, but it’s also going to work out. that’s life; you learn, hurt, love, cry, laugh, and keep going. you experience setbacks and you grow and it’s all okay.

if you’ve ever taken a shower to muffle your sobs, I’m sorry and I love you. if you’ve ever eaten alone in a bathroom stall, I’m sorry and I love you. if you’ve ever used makeup to conceal evidence of pain, I’m sorry and I love you. if you’ve ever looked in a mirror and wanted to change what you saw, I’m sorry and I love you. if you’ve ever questioned your worth because of someone else, I’m sorry and I love you. you’re not alone, and you don’t deserve the hurt you’ve experienced. you are good enough—more than good enough. you and valid, you have meaning, and you are loved even when you don’t know it.
