I just wanted to tell you that you’re incredibly brave for sharing this story so openly. Fierce for putting the truth out there about your experiences. And wise for realizing in the end that you won’t allow someone to make you feel less than the next time.
This is how we grow.
Several of these comments are asking “how could you do that?” Or “why would you put up with that?” But we ALL make mistakes and have ALL put ourselves in positions (at least once) that compromised our self worth. This is the human condition.
So I hope you are able to recognize how courageous you are by being so vulnerable, which to me is what real beauty is all about.
I’ve dealt with body issues my entire life and fully understand where you’re coming from. But the good news is that once you realize how majestic you are, everyone else will see the same — with or without the 40 pounds.
Regardless, you are clearly on your way. Thank you for sharing your real story with us ♥️🙏🏽
