I am a smaller woman size wise. Always have been. I have been criticized for being too small. After I had two children and gained weight and got a bit of a tummy, I was criticized for gaining weight. My entire adolescence I was criticized for having small breasts. Mercilessly taunted for it. I am STILL learning to love my body. I STILL see all my imperfections when I look in the mirror. I STILL have many days when I think I am not pretty or acceptable in the way that I look.
Words hurt. Judgements hurt. They follow a person and do not magically fall away with adulthood. I have considered breast augmentation. But I won't do it. Mother nature gave me this body, and who am I to argue with what nature deems beautiful?
Learning to be comfortable in your own skin and see beauty when you look in the mirror is a life long, sometimes painful process. But know this: You ARE beautiful. You ARE enough. You ARE perfect the way you are. And you deserve to love your body because it's the only one you've got.
