Growing up I was always teased about my weight. I pretended that it didn’t matter and that I wasn’t hurt, but it did and I was. In the past few months I’ve been slowly but surely learning how beautiful and lovable I am. In the past little while God has placed many wonderful people in my life to show me that true beauty isn’t about fitting into a size six or having the perfect body but that true beauty is having an interior light and not being afraid to let it shine. I’m not totally accepting of myself yet and I do still struggle with a low self esteem but I’m learning. It will be a long process because there have been a lot of hurts that I need to work through but with the help of friends I’m learning and I will come to accept myself and my beauty for what it’s worth.
