think about what your dog would say to you if he knew how much you hated yourself
this just changed my life
I always think about this. And how your dog doesn’t see whether or not you’re “pretty”. You’re just perfect to them.
I know I’ve reblogged this before but it’s just so freakin relevant
wow this hit me like a fucking truck

shout out to fat girls who go clothes shopping with their skinny friends and have to pretend they’re having a good time
Shout out to the girls with eating disorders who go shopping and when they get home, punish themselves for days and/or want to die.
I’m just saying.

You know when you look in the mirror, and you think, ‘Ugh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know that’s not your authentic self, but that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards, all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard-earned money and spend it on some turnaround cream that doesn’t turnaround shit.
When you don’t have self-esteem, you will hesitate before you do anything in your life. You will hesitate to go for the job you really wanna go for. You will hesitate to ask for a raise. You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote. You will hesitate to dream.
For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution. And our revolution is long-overdue.”
