I used to hide my legs. I refused to wear shorts or even capris, no matter how hot it got. I was embarrassed by my skin tone, my cellulite, by the way I looked, and didn't know how to change it. I always suspected that I didn't actually need to change myself, that I just needed to stop listening to the comments, but actually doing that was...tough.
Then one day, I did stop listening. To society, to those people. I'm not entirely sure what made the switch flip, but it did. Sometimes that anxiety is still there, telling me I'm not good enough, that even my best doesn't cut it, and what I am isn't what it should be. But the incredible, compassionate, and impressive people who have somehow come into my life are reminder enough that yeah, I'm doing alright. And I wear booty shorts now, because who's gonna tell me I can't?
