it's never easy admitting the shitty things. it's not easy to admit that someone harmed you. it's not easy to admit that it makes you feel worthless & seems like it's thrown you back years of learning to love yourself. it's definitely not easy to admit that some of those past demons have shown up in the present. and it's not easy to fight back, against all of it: societal beauty standards, abusive behaviour, putting oneself down & the fear of not being cool enough. but as hard as it may be, I will try my best. because I've only got this one body & it is worth loving.
