The most challenging part about being a woman in the works of rebuilding life after breast cancer? Being thrown back to reality of the intense pressure to look “hot” based on what consumerism wants... long hair, cup D breasts, toned abs, full butt, slender legs. But then I look in the mirror and I see the opposite... short hair, cup B breasts with scars, flat tummy but no abs, perky but small bum and petite legs. So where does that leave my self-esteem after going through sh*t just to live long, approaching midlife and not having all the privilege to work out and go to a dermatologist 24/7 because I have to work to make ends meet?
I can go on “victim” mode on this but I’d rather be a “victor” and own my looks and body as how it turned out today. Yes it will never be as “perfect” as what the consumerism world wants but this is me now... petite, imperfect, and real. The world can expect all they want but it doesn’t matter now. I am f*cking alive, continuously WINNING and comfortable being FLAWSOME! ❤️ #loveyourownbeauty
