**Deleting later** These are two pictures of myself taken seven months apart 🙈. I would love to say," the girl on the right is so much happier with herself" but really that's not true. I, like many others in this world, suffer from body dysphoria which basically means that I obsess and focus on flaws in my appearance. For me, this means that I've spent many unfortunate hours of my life telling myself that I'm not good enough. I critique my hair, skin, and most importantly my weight. I've always felt like it was "too" big. I felt like a monster in my own skin. I can go days without eating anything and sometimes even after I do eat I'll throw it up later when no one is around. I even progressed to taking weight loss supplements to accelerate my metabolism. I wanted to be thin, fit, and curvy, and I was willing to do anything to for it. So many times I've stopped myself from eating something that I want because I tell myself I'm not good enough. I tell myself I'm not perfect and I don't deserve it. Honestly, I even did that last night. I'm not posting this pic for sympathy or to garner likes. I just want to remind everyone out there on this social media bubble that is okay to not be perfect and to remind you to love yourself. Nobody's perfect and it's useless to waste your life vying for perfection that will never be achieved. Instead you have to learn to love yourself for who you are. By posting this pic, I'm taking the first step to trying to do that. I know it'll be hard but it's the least I can do. And remember: "The vehicle made of flesh that we are in does not control us. We control them."
