Prompt #4 : Beauty

How have your standards of beauty shifted in the past year?

I have allowed myself to consider myself beautiful, consistently in spite of my size. I keep working on feeling beautiful and happy with myself. It’s a struggle, particularly with the ingrained lessons that “if you’re fat, then you can’t be beautiful and no one will love you” that I grew up with from my mother. Otherwise, for others, I still have the same ideas of beauty.. at all sizes. 🙂
