Honestly, I feel that there’s nothing wrong with the public display of affection. It’s kind of sweet you know, like the two of you are the only ones in the world; the only person you can see is one another and such. I really don’t understand why it is so offensive to some people. Maybe they are just really that conservative.
Tonight, I’m writing a letter. It’s not because i want to, it’s because i feel that i need to. I’ve never wrote a letter for years and was never fond of writing but there is something in me right now that tells myself that i should really make one.
“I got really honest with myself about what the weight meant to me. I asked myself the hard questions like: Who am I if I’m not the fat girl struggling with food, weight and exercise all the time? Who am I if I don’t turn to food every time life becomes uncomfortable? What am I hiding from? What do I believe it says about me as a person if I am heavier than societies standards? Why do I care so fucking much what others think about me? Why? And the most important question of all: Is it really possible for me to love and accept myself just the way I am?
The answer was yes.
And, because I love you with my whole heart, dear reader, I’m going to share with you one more secret: You wouldn’t be here, reading this right now, if somewhere deep inside, you didn’t believe that you can, too.”—Christie Inge (via selfinspiration)
