It sucks that you can open your whole heart up to someone and then have them throw your trust right back in your face. It sucks that love doesn’t always last, no matter how strongly you felt it at first.
Sometimes it feels lonely. It feels like you’re the only one who sees the light at the end of the tunnel, what lies on the other side, the magic that could happen if everything goes right.
Being body positive is not just about your weight. It’s about accepting all aspects of your body (your body hair, your acne, your cellulite, your freckles) no matter what society deems as acceptable and/or beautiful.
