ICYMI: I shared in my IG story the other day that I received my first mean DM. It was from a guy with a private profile, and all it said was “Ugly” (lololol).
I would have let this affect me a lot had this happened a few years ago. In college, I struggled with disordered eating and body dysmorphia. I’ve struggled with low self-esteem and self-worth. I used to want to change almost everything about myself. I would have read the word “Ugly” and believed it, because it’s what I already believed about myself.
GUESS WHAT, HENNY - gone are those days. I read that and laughed, and then thought about what a miserable fuck that guy must be, that he’s spending his time DM’ing random girls on social media and insulting them. Now, I weigh 10+ pounds more than I did in college, I have several breakouts, I’ve got fine lines popping up left and right, but I no longer think I’m ugly. I know I’m not. What people say about us is so much more a reflection of them, and what we believe to be true depends on us and how we feel about ourselves.
That’s all, beautiful friends. Enjoi your day, plz.
