Today I decided I’m going to start being as kind to myself as I am to others…. and guess what… its working.
Screw everybody who ever told me I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, driven enough, or beautiful enough to make it in this world. I’m a kind soul, but I will no longer use that as an excuse to let others walk over me, nor will I continue to let myself use it as an excuse to hide under the covers for days on end, beating myself up for this shortcoming or that failure.
I am beautiful and kind and not taking anyone’s negativity anymore, not even my own.
Fuck eating disorders and body shaming and non-existent self worth and anxiety and depression and everything else I’ve let ruin my mornings, noons, and nights.
Hope you are all having a splendid evening and loving yourselves wholeheartedly. We’ve only got this one life… make it count. )
-I posted this on my blog today and got enough anonymous hate to irritate me, so I want to spread this even further!! Don’t let anybody ever, EVER, tell you you are worthless and that those around you are only around you because they can’t find someone better….
THE HATE NEEDS TO STOP.
So of course, you all are my first stop as I’ve posted here before.

I’m so happy there are websites like this to remind women to love their own beauty. There is beauty all around us. We’re constantly reminded of its presence — mainly, its presence in other women, other outfits, other bodies and rarely are we reminded to look at ourselves. Today, I feel like loving myself. I hope you all feel the same way.

Love your blog
As a plus size curvy girl, wearing print can often get frustrating because I always worry about if my boobs will stretch the print and make it look weird which really blows considering I love print! Here’s me wearing my favorite flowery shirt :3
I’m another soul who’s had a hard time finding body shapes that remind me of my own and, honestly, it’s a bit hard still. I’ve only recently found out that I have BDD and it’s a struggle, so seeing women in all shapes and sizes that are gorgeous and bubbly encourages me to focus a bit less on all my faults. It’s a long way still but having my tumblr-feed being full of you gorgeous women makes my days better. Thank you.

I have spent years and years letting a poor body image stop me from living life to the fullest. This submission is a big step for me in claiming my life back. Who knows what’s next? I might even muster up the courage to wear this to the beach! I want to be happy and healthy and embrace all that is beautiful in this world. I’m still working on embracing myself, but I’ll get there!

Kate here. Age 21. 38D, 150 lbs, 5’7”.
I have been feeling really self-conscious about my weight, in particular my thighs and arms, recently. I would normally NEVER be brave enough to submit this, but after scrolling through page after page of this blog I’m already feeling more confident. There are so many confident, beautiful girls out there who happen to embrace their curves. I hope to be able to love myself as well soon. :)
Hi, my name is Jess, age 28. I’ve been recovering, on my own, from an eating disorder for over a year now (loosely following Minnie Maud). It wrecked my life for at least 5 or 6 years. It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but it’s been so worth it. Within the past year I’ve gained roughly 60ish lbs and over the past few months have tapered down a little. I don’t know my exact stats, but I’d guess to weigh around 185 lbs (5’8”) — wearing size 12-14. I’m finally in the awesome head space of liking the shape my body has taken on. I’m no longer preoccupied with my body, but living the life I wasted away for so long instead. I still have down days, but I stop and think of all the awesome shit my body can do for me. Through all of this, I’ve come to appreciate all shapes and sizes of the human body. They’re beautiful, and I’ll never abuse mine again the way I did for so long. ♡

Its taken a lot of hard work and positive thoughts to get me on the path to self love but I’m much closer now than I was even 4 months ago.
Ive never owned short shorts. The closest I would let myself go is just below the knee. I decided this was going to be the year I have more fun with myself and just let go of so much negative thinking.

After a lifetime of HORRIBLE self image issues, and having a baby 7 months ago…I’m realizing that I’m ok. That I am attractive. That I have the potential to be healthy. Even though only about 5% of my clothes fit me well.
Lucky me, I found a new swim top for $6!
