For most of my 18 years of life, I was so insecure of my body. I could tell you some of the craziest thing I would do to try to be skinny or to have society's "ideal body." It was hard for me to accept that I would never look that way, but I realized that my body or the way I look doesn't define who I am as a person. I know I have a tummy and it might not be appealing to some but, I like the way I look. I might not be perfect, but I love who I am and who I've become. I hope everyone understands that it's okay to not be the what society makes us think is "beautiful." You are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are. Please don't be afraid to wear a swimsuit this summer because you feel insecure with yourself, know that you are perfect just the way you are. Don't forget that you are the ONLY YOU in this world, make sure you use that to your power. Never stop loving yourself and having confidence with who you are.
