The following Facebook post was written by a young woman who has struggled with her weight all her life (since she was 3 years old!). Never happy with how she looked, never feeling like she was enough, she felt like she was always waiting.
Finally, at the age of 21, she “got tired of waiting” and bought her first bikini. The accompanying photo shows her smiling, with her “weird bulges and rolls of fat.” She writes: “I want to learn to love all of myself, not just the parts I’ve been told are ‘acceptable.’ Because the secret is, I was always enough, and you are too.”
Truer words were never spoken.
