The reason that I chose to submit this photo was because my father told me that he thought I was too fat to be employable.
It’s not the best photo of me, nor is it my favourite. But it’s one that shows all of my flaws, all my “fat bits” and all the bits that I hate, and yet I’m still really happy and full of joy.
I visit this Tumblr every day, to try and teach myself to love the way that I look- so many of the other girls, bigger or smaller than myself, have such amazing confidence and self love, and I hope that one day I’ll have that too.
