Bedtime selfie from Feb 4, 2017 (from instagram)
Recently a couple of trolling 💩 s found their way onto my Instagram and felt the need to post negative comments about my looks on a few selfies with empowering messages attached to them.
And we’ll, those turds got what they wanted, I tried not to let them win but they did. I even took down the pictures including one that Chris Hemsworth’s brother in law liked- now why in hell did I give creeps on the internet so much power?! The answer is I don’t know. I have fought very hard to love and accept myself as is and not need other peoples approval but the truth is that those kind of words still sting- even from strangers. I don’t want to let them win though. I want the acceptance of myself to be bigger and stronger than their tiny turd words. I know I am beautiful. Even right after my relaxing bubble bath with no makeup and crazy hair. I’ve got it going on and the only people who can’t see that are beneath me and not worth my time.
And because of that, I am going to share more selfies on instagram, and on tumblr because even though I feel like I’ve gotten to a place where I have accepted myself, there is a certain self-consciousness still attached to me so this is part of my empowerment (it’s why I’ll be blogging more personal stuff in general too-I’m working on putting myself out there in baby steps.)
