Sometimes I realize just how fucked up and distorted my body image is. I was in a store grabbing clothes, because I’ve realized just how old most of the things I own are. So I was grabbing size 6 and size 8, because they looked right. They were huge. Come to find out, I am a size 0. Not even a 2, a 0. I know most of that is to do with the fact that I am petite, not skinny. It is still amazing that I can feel so huge and unhappy all the time. Its almost disgusting. Maybe I just need someione to tell me I’m beautiful but I can’t wait around for someone to say it, let alone think it. So now, for this moment, I am going to tell myself.

I feel kind of beautiful.

  1. I know the feeling. I think most of us get severely disgusted with our bodies and it's sad. Only some of us are sometimes able to put on a different lens and see the truth and love ourselves. I remember having that same epiphany and it was really surreal feeling. It was so crazy to understand how differently I could see myself. Regardless it's just as easy to wear the hypocritical lens and forget all about said epiphanies. There definitely should have been someone telling you you're beautiful…


Give me validation.
