I have finally come to the conclusion and acceptance that you can’t change anyone else’s opinion. You can’t make other people accept you for who you are. You can’t force other people to be okay with your body. People are always going to have their opinions, good and/or bad. The only thing that you can do is accept YOU for YOU. Accept your lumps. Accept your curves. Accept your build. Eventually your self-acceptance will turn in to self-love and you’ll realize that no one else’s opinions on your weight, or how you look, matter anymore. Love yourself, beauties, because you’ll only ever be you.

And I can finally love me for me.
