Here I am, looking forward to write about something that still lingers in my mind. It's still a bit hard talking about this topic but I'll give my best, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy.


Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot:

Okay...This happened a few years ago, I was in a relationship back then. And my boyfriend at that time said something to me that maybe I'll never be able to forget. You must be thinking he said something romantic, beautiful and all of that. Hate to break the candles for you but it was quite the opposite.
We were on a date, normal day and everything. It was all going well when suddenly out of context he said something like this: you have some hair there (on my face), you need to shave that.
I mean, at the time I was so embarrassed and wanted to crawl somewhere I could hide. You must be asking why I felt that way. Well, at the time I had a really low self esteem... I was insecure about my body (like most of teennagers are) and him saying that to me, when he was supposed to support me... I mean, it was like being stabbed. I was so hurt. I went from smiling to purely hurt, even though I tried not to show it.
The truth is, he always made me feel like I was not good enough for him. He was always comparing me to other girls, saying their bodies were like this and like that, that they were working out, going to the gym, etc. That I should be more like them and that he already fooled around with those girls. It made me feel worthless. And he would never ever compliment me, nothing, not even a you look beautiful today.
Well, if that happened now I would laugh in his face and say Oh, and you're perfect? People have hair on almost 99% of their body, it's normal, it's human. You want something hairless, why don't you get a sphynx cat and leave me the hell alone?
Now I feel so much more confident in my own skin. I mean, it's still a battle I have to fight every day but we should love ourselves above anything else. Because self love is so so so important.
Women have facial hair, our bodies are not perfect, we have cellulite, scars, stretch marks, etc. And if people don't accept that just let them go and set yourself free. You don't have to change who you are for some stupid someone.

Thank you so much for reading, it was hard writing about this part of my life, because remebering it makes me mad because today I'm a different person, with much more strength.
