Dear Angel,

  Just so you know, It’s okay. It’s ok to be hurt when other people would say mean things about your body. It’s ok that others wouldnt find you fitting in their definition of beautiful. It’s ok to be bigger than anyone else. It’s ok because you are better than that. You are not defined by your body. You’re not defined by their standards. If they weren’t there while you’re  struggling to lose weight then they shouldnt be there when you are starting to get comfortable with your skin. They shouldnt have a say whether you gained or lost or whether you should be proud or ashamed of your body. You are not a body, you are a soul with a body.

Yeah it might be frustrating that others dont recognize the result of your hardwork but, so what? You didnt do it for them. Dont let their words get to you. Be hurt but get over it and forgive them. Show them that being bigger means a bigger heart. 

Chin up! You are wonderfully and fearfully made.




Seriously, who set the standard of beauty we have today?
Who let us be conditioned to one set of beauty?
Why did we let them?
Why did the older generation let it happen?
And why is it, no matter how much we set up campaigns to open up the world to more realistic,
More vibrant, kind of beauty
We all still secretly aim for the beauty in print and flashed in the screens?
