See this… this is how it’s done.
No “you don’t look chunky, you look beautiful.”
No “you don’t look chunky” at all.
Just complete acceptance. Yeah, you look how you do, and how you look is beautiful. Mama gets it.
And having said all that, I just want to say that I’m still here. A little overwhelmed. A little monstrous. My little life and my little world still eager to interact with the larger lives and the larger world out there.
Jenny Zhang (via wordsthat-speak)
"I know what pain feels like and you don’t feel it. You don’t ache for me at all."
There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn’t matter anymore.
