it’s like my second day of college
and i already love myself more than i ever did in high school
i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
don’t be so hard on yourself.
At that time, you did your best with the knowledge that you had.
At that time, you did your best with the experience that you had.
Some of your decisions might have been coping skills and a time when you didn’t know what you know today.
If you were to make those decisions with the wisdom you have now, you would choose differently.
So give yourself a break and forgive yourself.
Time and experience has a wonderful way
to make us realize that we prosper,
grow and learn to make better choices today,
for ourselves and those we care for.
