I’ve had struggles with my self-esteem since I was 13 years old. I just wanted somebody to tell me that even though I am a big girl that I am pretty too. That started a chain of unhealthy “friendships” with boys. I didn’t really have standards I would just go for whoever looked decent and thought I was cute. But now I am learning how to love myself and for the first time ever I can say I’m beautiful and actually believe it. It’s not an easy process, but I’m trying to remain strong and build my self confidence. If there are any other girls who are going through the same situation, whether you are big or small, I am her to tell you are beautiful and you need to love yourself first.
