TRIGGER WARNING: BULLYING, EATING DISORDERS, DEPRESSION, SELF HARM.
I was bullied since kindergarten about my size. I’ve always been “that fat girl” or “the biggest girl in the school” , no matter where I’ve been. I’ve developed social anxiety because of it, being bullied until the middle of my freshman year of high school. It put me into a deep depression and I started to starve, purge, and hurt myself. I’m not fully recovered from that, but I’m on my way. My stomach isn’t flat, my thighs touch, you can’t see my hip bones or rib cage, but I’m starting to realize that it’s okay. My arms aren’t toned, they wiggle too. But that’s okay. I don’t look through magazines if I can avoid it because the media warps the women and men in there beyond recognition. Stop body shaming, health, fitness, and beauty come in ALL shapes and sizes. You want that cake? Go for it. Love your body, and think of all the amazing things that it can do for you<3
