Part of my week long body positivity challenge. Day five: what I love about myself. My perseverance. Five years ago my mom died and I didn’t think I would be able to handle it. Often I felt like giving up. It was hard for me to get out of the bed in the morning, let alone go to school and be a functioning human. Miraculously, I graduated with a medal for being top of my class. I hated myself for a long time, for many reasons, so I am happy made it out alive to become the crazy, feminist, fat, queer, self-loving woman I am today.
