the past few weeks have not been fun mentally. i don’t know what happened or why it has only just begun but i’ve began to hate myself physically. i never used to. i never used to think about my appearance at all. which is why i think looking at mirror and now thinking words like “disgusting, fat, hideous, repulsing” has been having a huge toll on my mental health. i asked my brother to take this photo of me so i could post it. i’ve been avoiding cameras and mirrors all week so i thought this would be a good way to rip the bandaid. i hope one day i’ll be able to look at a photo like this again and not feel ashamed. i’m working on it- so just bare with me in the meantime.
