Weronika 20 y.o size 16/18 UK
It took me a long time to submit this photo.
I still don’t feel 100% confident and I still learn how to love and accept myself.
I recently gained weight due to my depression and went from size 14 to smallish 18. I was devastated and ashamed. I felt awful. But then I realized I don’t have to feel like this. Gaining weight is not the end of the world (although the media wants us to feel that way). My family will still love me, my friends will still love me even though I’m bigger. It took me a long amount of time to understand that what they love is on the inside not my looks. Although I am absolutely fabulous on the outside too ;)
This blog helped me a great deal and I am very very thankful :) <3
This is yet another step to self love and acceptance for me.
And for anyone out there who’s struggling just remember, it takes time. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
If you’d like pop around to my blog and talk to me :)
