Stop dating people because you dislike yourself and need someone to hold your hand through your shit. Insecurities spoil love.
I am not the fat on my stomach. Or the stretch marks on my thighs. I am not my crooked teeth or less than spectacular curves. I am a soul waiting to take flight, to break through the barriers of who we are told we are supposed to be.
You have cut yourself open, vulnerable, exposed and figuratively naked to both happiness and pain. You have loved and lost. There is no better way to state that.
This is me deciding I can’t control everything and I have to be okay with that. This is me deciding things will be okay – somehow, someway.
The truth is, you are stronger than all of this. You’re smarter than your demons.
You’re not simply the fumbles or clumsy moments in front of people; you’re not your self-conscious or anxiety-wrought brain or your weight.
Love yourself enough to demand the respect you deserve from everyone else around you because you are worth it.
What if you date the person who will fight for you if need be, but who knows that you have always been strong enough to fight for yourself.
Your struggle and your mess is something to be proud of.
Libra-Scorpio (10/19-10/25): You understand who you are.
