I just really want to share the truth of the sadness that I carry with me, and how it shows up in my life. I hope that little girls will get to grow up in a kinder world, and have more body positivity present in their lives as a result of body advocates like Ashley Graham stepping into the spotlight recently.
Two days before my wedding, I was laying in the bathtub, crying because I felt bad about my body. "I am bad, I am wrong, I don't deserve the love of a great man, I don't deserve a spectacular wedding day," was the thought reel playing on loop in my head. Talking to my fiancé that night, something finally clicked.
