The fact is, this will always be around as far as we know, and it most likely wont stop. I remember growing up in my grandmas house she was obsessed
with weight and I was always made to get on the scale and I was either too think or too fat and there was never an in between. I got diagnosed with
Chrones Disease when I was 18 and I got really sick and couldnt eat and when I did I would throw it up because it made me sick, so I lost an unhealthy
amount of weight and my grandma gave me hell for it all the time even though there was nothing I could do.
I also remember a time where I had just woken up and went to her work (Big Lots) and she got mad at me and said I embarrassed her because I didn't
have makeup on or had my hair done. So it can also be family members that subject girls to this type of thing also.
But I had horrible self esteem for years, I remember I thought I had to have a tan and perfect hair and wear skimpy clothes just to be considered
pretty and I wouldn't leave the house without putting on a layer of fake tan and makeup and an hour on my hair and the right clothes. It disgusted me
because that wasn't the real me.
It took me a long time to recognize that I dont have to cover my freckles, its okay to not have a tan, and its okay to walk out the house with your
I wish more girls could come to this realization and sooner than I did.
