“When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin.You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you cant fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.”
-Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies.
Do you find this attractive?
How about this?
What do you think about this…
There are’nt many things that terrify me about the way women think they have to be more than anything under the ‘Thinspiration’ tag on tumblr..
Is THIS what you think about yourself?
Dear girls! Why do you have so little self respect? Where is your dignity? Why wont you love yourself? Do you think turning yourself into a skeleton covered by skin is going to make HIM love you?
Tell me, do you spend hours in front of the mirror, nitpicking your make up and then going out, comparing yourself to everyone around you and hating yourself for not dressing up even more? Do compliments feel like lies? Do you get uncomfortable when someone does something nice for you?
NOBODY will ever love you if you don’t love YOURSELF!
By putting yourself down like this, you are preventing your happiness yourself!
That is the ONLY qualification you have to pass in order to LET yourself be loved.
Its a different thing to be humble and not get in over your head about compliments. Its another thing to dress up good and another thing to hide behind a facade. Its different to be fit and maintain a healthy weight and another thing to starve yourself, compare yourself with someone of a completely different body type and judge yourself by magazine covers. Go and exercise, eat healthy food. Find out what weight is healthy for your height and body type and stop expecting your legs to turn into needles!
Life is painful enough, don’t make it even worse for yourself. There are so many people just sitting there, eager to help you. Doctors, teachers, support groups, friends, parents, organizations! Find them. Go to them. Remember the people that love you regardless of your appearance. You are hurting them by hurting yourself like this. That makes you selfish doesn’t it? Why would you put up with people that give you standards to pass before you can be with them? Howe long do you think that LOVE will last? Is it even reliable?
Remember my friends..beauty isn’t measured in pounds.
There is always someone there that loves you, no matter how invisible they may be to you.
Find them. Find happiness.
Lots of love,
