This is something that always happens to me, and I wanted to share. When I was growing up I always wanted to be skinny like the rest of the girls. Yet I wasn't. I was over weight, and yes I ate a lot of bad food. Due to this, I realized that I wanted to change my eating habits.
I lost some about of weight, but it got to the point where I didn't even eat because I wasn't skinny like my friends were, or skinny like the models, or actresses on tv.
I would look into the mirror and feel ugly with my body, I have stretch marks, that I always hated. I would want to be skinny. Until one day it all clicked in.
I was walking with my friend, and she is skinny, she told me, "Girl, I wish I could have your body."
I ask her why and she responded with "Honey, you have curves, boobs, and a butt, all natural."
I smiled and replied with thanks. I got home that day, and realized that I am beautiful, even with stretch marks and everything. I looked at myself in the mirror, and said to myself, "I'm proud to be a natural thick girl."
From that on forward, I always tell myself that I'm beautiful, I love myself just the way I am, even with my flaws.
I grown to realize that many girls, also go through the same things I go through yet, they don't realize that, every single body is different in shape way, and form, we are all beautiful, and we should embrace it.
