Ususally I'd hate this photo and see all of my flaws. Especially my arm.
Here it is in all of it's glory as I try to learn to accept and love myself for who I am, warts and all, as the saying goes.
I'm trying to use my instagram as a safe place where I can post things I enjoy and show bits of my journey towards fully enjoying being human, specifially at this point in time, a plus sized human with thoughts, feelings, triggers and mental health problems that I'm working towards dealing with.
This is my place to be as open as I want to and to be unapologetically the me I have always wanted to be.
Also peep that baby photo of me, what an adorable nerd and the beautiful photo of my nan when she was younger (Yes, I stole her makeup station to take this photo). #selfacceptance #selfacceptancejourney #plussize #plussizefashion #vintageclothing #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawerness #mentalhealthrecovery #selfie
