Self-love not self-hate

You are worth it, recovering is painful and hard but it'll be worth it in the end. c:

"Never confuse a single failure with a final defeat"- S. Fitzgerald

Life on We Heart It.

"Oh my darling you’ body is so beautiful please stop destroying it, it’s one of kind"
When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.

Our mental health is just as individualized as our thumbprints.

Please note that this is not my picture

When I have a daughter,
I will not do as my mother did.
I will not discuss fad diets in front of her,
I will not tell her that I can help her with cutting out ‘bad food’ if she’s worried about putting on a little weight,
When the drunk man on the street or the boy in the school corridor makes a comment about her body,
I will not tell her to take it as a compliment,
I will not tell her to ignore it and move on,
I will not tell her that it’s to be expected,
That it’s a part of life,
That she has to accept it.
When she pushes guys off her friends in clubs because their unwelcome touch is causing discomfort,
I will not tell her she shouldn’t have,
I will not tell her she should have remained silent for her own safety.
I will not suggest she changes her outfit in case she attracts unwanted attention.

I will tell my daughter that she has a right to be proud of her body no matter what it looks like,
That she is beautiful,
But that her kindness and intelligence are beautiful also.
I will teach my daughter to hone her warrior spirit,
To stand up for what she knows is right
And to never be ashamed.
I will teach her that there is nothing shameful about her body,
That there is nothing shameful about being a woman.
When I have a daughter,
I will teach her that no one has the right to lay hands
Or crude words on her and get away with it.
I will teach her that she has a right to safety
Anywhere, and no matter what she is wearing.

I don’t blame you, mother, because you weren’t taught any different,
I only feel sorrow that I will have the opportunity
To break this cursed cycle in the generation that I raise up,
But not in the one that came before me.

-My Daughter (angeolras-et-grandaire)
