This photo is proof to me that I do feel so much better about myself in general. I never thought the day would come where I’d begin to start loving my real hair. My real hair is wavy, curly, poofy, and crazy. It gets crazier than this.. My hair wasn’t dry all the way when I took this photo. But I love it. I used to always think it made me so ugly but now I know it doesn’t. There were a lot of things about myself that I needed to learn to love, not just my body. I also hated wearing my hair in a poinytail because I thought it made me look like a boy, but in my previous photo, that’s obviously not true.
And I really love my arms now. I still have a lot of work to do, but I do feel good about the fact that I can wear this without feeling insecure. I used to NEVER show off my arms. I’m trying to remind myself every day that I am beautiful.
