“You don’t even know how your page has brought people together. It’s amazingly inspiring! I would also like to share something with other clefties. I know I shared my story before but, I want to refine it. I want to further share my experience and the road I have been on which has helped me become the person I’m right now.
To start, I have not had anymore surgeries since, approximately, three years ago. There are still things I want to change about my look but, but I’m feeling comfortable with how I look right now. I think I can say that I’m beautiful without sounding too conceited; I want you guys to know you’re all beautiful as well!
I have been able to build this confidence by reflecting on the road I have embarked on to become the person I am now. The physical is also not the the most important part. I can say I’m beautiful because I started believing it. I also believe that a person's personality can have a HUGE impact on that. People will see that you’re happy, see that you look fine and live your life how you want to live it. Open yourself to others and they will see your beauty on the inside and outside.
As my girlfriend Amber once told me, and I'm stealing her quote here... Sorry, not sorry lol, “The cleft doesn’t make you, you make the cleft”. With all that said, there will always be room for improvement to change yourself, use your potential and invest time on bettering yourself. You can be and do whatever you want. Create your own beauty and start believing in it because people will notice that! I also want to share something else with you clefties. Today is my one month anniversary with my girlfriend Amber. We were both born with a cleft. I want to share this with you guys because, for me, it is very special to have a girlfriend that has a cleft too. I honestly never thought about dating a girl with a cleft. Not that I would be against it, but I could not have imagined that I would fall in love with another cleftie. But it happened and it’s truly amazing. I don’t regret anything and I’m actually very happy to have her. I will tell you why. Continued in comment below ⬇️
