    I am a lover without a lover.
    I am lovely and lonely
    and I belong deeply to myself.

    People always ask me, 'You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?' It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn't have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, your home, and you must decorate it.

    (( Gabourey Sidibe, Golden Globes 2010 ))

    Go to the bathroom, shut the door and take off you clothes.
    Wash off your makeup and pull your hair up.
    Look in the mirror.
    Don't judge yourself, just look.
    Trace your hairline, examine the curve of your eyebrows.
    Stare into your own eyes and take in the shape and the colour.
    Learn the contours of your cheekbones, the slope of your nose.
    Note the curves of your lips, the colour.
    Now smile - really, geniunely smile.
    Notice how your face changes.
    Does your nose scrunch? Do your eyes light up?
    Go further - your shoulders, arms, hands.
    Examine them, pick them apart.
    Notice the small details - the freckles, the shapes, the colours.
    Are your arms thin, thick, muscular?
    Are they tanned, pale, freckled?
    Are they scarred? If they are, don't hate them.
    These scars are a part of you now.
    Are your hands wide, narrow, short, long?
    Are your fingers long, stubby, slender?
    Are your nails long, short, bitten, painted?
    Go back to your torso.
    Examine your breasts thoroughly
    Take note of how they feel and look.
    Raise your arms and feel and look again.
    Remember this. Notice if something changes.
    Look at your ribs, your waist, your stomach.
    Don't worry about the size or the firmness/lack thereof.
    Study the curve of your hips, the shape of your butt.
    Follow the length of your legs.
    Your thighs, thick or thin? Gapped or not?
    Are there scars here too? Accept them.
    Down further, your calves and ankles.
    Are they shaved, hairy?
    Muscular, thin, thick?
    Your feet, little, big, wide, narrow?
    Come back up, and notice all the little marks across your skin.
    Freckles, scars, tattoos, skin discolourations, pimples.
    What ones are intentional?
    What ones do you regret?
    What ones do you wish were gone?
    Accept them all - they are part of you now.
    Look for the familiar features.
    Do you have your mother's nose, father's chin?
    Do you share the same smile as your brother?
    Can you see your grandmother in your eyes?
    Do you have freckle in the same place as your best friend?
    Step back and look at it all together.
    All of these little things make up you.
    You do not need to change a thing,
    though if you want to, it's more than okay.
    These body parts belong to you, and no-one else.
    There is nothing wrong with any of them,
    no matter what anyone says;
    not your friends, parents, peers or the media.
    Your body is not wrong. You are not wrong.
    You are you, and that will always be enough.

    We flirt with death every time
    we etch a new tally mark into
    our skin. I know how to split my
    wrists like a battlefield too, but
    the time has come for us to
    reclaim our bodies;
    our bodies deserve more than
    to be war-torn and collateral.

    Can we talk about cyber bullying for just a minute?
    I have one question for anyone who has ever said anything nasty\cruel\rude\despicable to another person over the internet.
    What did you gain?
    What did you gain from calling that one girl fat?
    Or telling that one boy he's a "F a g g o t" ?
    Or telling that group of kids to go kill themselves?
    What did you earn from that, besides some bad karma?
    Did it make you feel good about yourself?
    Did you feel like ruler of the world for a little while?
    What happens when that feeling of power vanishes after that five seconds?
    What do you do then? Go find someone else to put down?
    It's an endless cycle, you'll never actually have power.
    Being mean, you actually lose power.
    But by being nice, and doing what's right, you'll gain respect and friends.
    I was cyber bullied today, here on Witty, you can go look in my comments. You can go to the one girl's profile and see what I wrote to her cause chriswebbylover42069 deleted my comments cause she knows she's wrong.
    If someone is cyber bullying you, tell someone, and if it doesn't stop, call the cops.
    But most of all, never contemplate taking your life because some bïtch/douche told you to. Chances are, her life's even more pathetic than yours seems to be. IT WILL GET BETTER. And those rude and offensive people, might end up being the ones pumping your gas, cleaning your toilets, or bringing you coffee and donuts later in the future. And always embrace your flaws and own them.
    "Oh my god your nose is huge!"
    "I know, right?! It's like a beak! I'm gonna go crack open some nuts with it. Later!"
    You're you for a reason,and to me, who you are right now is pretty damn spectacular.

    You tried to become smaller
    didn’t you?
    You curled into yourself,
    twisting and bending your spine,
    wanting to fit into a box so small,
    it would fit in your hand.
    You tried to speak softer,
    didn’t you?
    There was no more room in your box,
    so you spoke smaller words,
    and shorter sentences.
    Keeping your thoughts in
    a bottle nestled between
    your ribs.
    You tried to follow the lines
    on your palm,
    like the vikings followed
    the constellations―
    searching for something―
    anything―
    other than yourself.
    But what they failed to teach you,
    between your abc’s and 123’s
    is that you are not a box―
    you are a warrior,
    and your skin
    is your armor.
    The lines on your palm
    are not a maps;
    you are not meant to
    fit inside a box;
    your words are meant to
    be heard as you scream
    from the rooftops,
    breathing in gulps
    of fresh air;
    and the only thing you’re
    meant to find is
    yourself.
    (DS)

    if you don't love
    yourself, you'll
    always be
    chasing after
    people who don't
    love you, either.

    Care for yourself first. Eat well, exercise often, meditate,
    pray or just quiet your mind, end toxic relationships.
    Ask for help when you need it - it does not mean you're weak.
    If you need to, see a doctor - for your physical or mental health.
    Spend time with loved ones, but also time alone.
    Be open minded and try not to judge others for appearances,
    their skin colour, their clothing, their hair, their sêxuality;
    accept what makes us different and remember how we're the same.
    Ask forgiveness when neccessary and give it when needed,
    love without restraint and never hide that you do.
    Volunteer to help after a disaster, or in a developing country.
    Listen to the stories of the people there, try to understand,
    acknowledge how fortunate you are and be grateful for that.
    Smile at strangers on the street who seem sad,
    offer to help anyone who looks like they might need it.
    Learn as much as you can about anything and everything,
    read novels, magazines, newspapers, articles, blogs,
    take the time to discover all the secrets of this world.
    Talk to people about their studies, their passions,
    then find something you feel as passionate about.
    Travel the world, explore cities you've never been to,
    watch the sunrise over the ocean from every continent,
    learn about the different cultures, languages, traditions.
    meet as many people as you can and ask their stories.
    Learn to love yourself for who you are;
    for the way your nose crinkles when you smile,
    for the sound of your laugh, for the shape of your eyes,
    for the messy job of the nails on your non-dominant hand,
    for the things that you used to think made you 'weird'.
    Embrace the little things that make you who you are,
    because who you are is absolutely perfect.

    WHEN TOLD YOU ARE NOT PRETTY
    Pretty is a six-letter word that can't encompass your entire being in its arms. You were born to a mother who wore pain like trees wear their rings, as marks of fierce bravery and battle cries. You almost split her insides open coming out, wailing so hard the plaster cracked, but she grinned and bore it like a champion, even though the walls of her womb felt like one giant cigarette burn that no one cared enough to put out.
    You are Icarus incarnate, with a body stitched from wings, flying toward the sun every day no matter how low the storm clouds hover. Pretty is not a synonym for learning how to put together a body that fights itself every day with pocket knives, like assembling letters to form words that flame in the mouth. That’s called survival. Pretty is an ugly word. It leaves behind a bitter residue that apologies cannot erase. Pretty is just an excuse for playing darts with a woman’s confidence.
    When told you are not pretty, always remember how your body expanded to fit its widening cage, its blooming hips, how the growing pains were less like pain and more like cracking fault lines. How your body turned itself inside out and spilled over and over again. Getting emptied is not pretty. It is dark and wounding and it requires strength enough to move mountains.
    On your worst days do not look in the mirror and call yourself pretty. Call yourself trying, call yourself surviving, call yourself learning how to get through a day, a week, a month or year. Call yourself still learning. Pretty is just six letters for lipstick, false eyelashes, combs for hair that never gets tangled, not for women who earn a victory every day just managing to exist.
    When told you are not pretty, do not suck in your stomach. Pretty is a discriminatory word, but having a body that knows what it wants and gets what it wants is not a hate crime. It’s a healing hymn.
    Don’t forget how trees shake their last leaves in winter like they’re shedding skin from the old year. Shed pretty. Shed it now. Teach yourself to replace it with heart-wrenching, brilliant, clever, artistic, unique, understanding, fighting. Always living.
    When told you are not pretty, don’t fall in love with the ground. Get back up. This is not an apocalypse; this is not the end of the world. A six-letter word doesn’t have the power to burn down every building in site or freeze the entire world in epic proportions. Your body is not wreckage or refuse left over from a world on fire. Your body is just fine.
    Look in the mirror. Tell yourself, Pretty is not me. Pretty is an ugly concept. I am more.
    Say it. Say it.

    It's all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.

    Sometimes I drink too much vodka
    or eat 3 servings of macaroni and cheese in one sitting,
    but by far the most unhealthy habit I have is
    comparing myself to others.

    I have very few friends irl but I have reached a point in my self love journey where I can zip up my dress by myself, comfortably eat alone in public, and make myself laugh until my stomach hurts. At this point I welcome anyone to love me but I don’t need them to.

    You had never been loved properly
    and that made you cruel.
    You cut people open,
    Ripped them to shreds,
    just trying to find something
    to make you feel whole,
    to make you feel happy.
    you threw yourself into people
    so that you didn't have to deal with yourself,
    So that you didn't have to be alone.
    But you took people by the heart
    and crushed them
    Because no one taught you
    how to love another human being,
    but worse yet
    no one taught you how to love yourself.
    (p.s)

    i am a normal person. i don't have an amazing body or a flat stomach. i am far from being considered a model but i am me. i eat food. i have curves where i don't want them. i have scars because i have a history. some people love me, some hate me, and some don't even like to hear my name. i have done some good things. i have done many bad things too. i love my blue jeans and simple t-shirts. i am random and crazy. i don't pretend to be someone i am not. i am who i am. you can love me or hate me, i won't change. and if i love you, i'll do it with all my heart. i will make no apologies for the way i am.

    It's okay to love yourself. You don't have to think you're funny, beautiful, creative, or anything else. You are allowed to hate yourself. But don't let anybody make you think that loving yourself is somehow wrong; you have every right to think that you are worth it.

    Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that’s a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.
