So many 10 year challenge photos on my feed both quite amusing and half reminding me of the awkward, tall, insecure kid I used to be. This one’s for all the tall girls hunching over trying not to stand out/be taller than the boys; you were built to stand out babbyyy. Or anyone lacking confidence about a particular insecurity; be proud of it!! Big nose, small mouth, whatever, don’t listen to what anyone else has to say about you; extended relatives talking nose jobs, or Vogue telling you when a feature is ‘in fashion’, (i remember being so embarrassed my bushy eyebrows my whole childhood until one day it was ‘in’ and the eyebrows I was always so teased about was suddenly all the craze, what) Embrace your unique beauty!! Know you are the only person in the world with your exact features, the only one made exactly like you: with your exact looks, your exact experiences, thoughts, opinions and way of looking at life. You are a gem, a true beauty. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. And don’t hide it, it will give you nothing but a bad back for the rest of your life.
