Some of you guys have been sending me private messages and I just, well, shit. I could cry just from reading them. Never in my life did I ever think I could make an impact on other people. And the way some of you responded to the xoJane piece is astounding. It’s days later and I’m still getting so many warm and amazing messages. Your stories of struggle and perseverance are inspiring.
I want everyone out there who is reading this and may be struggling with self-acceptance, body-acceptance, ANYTHING, that you’re all strong and beautiful. Being human is a crazy-weird gift, but also a rollercoaster. And you’re living it for you. And that is so fucking radical. You’re treasures and you should all treat yourself that way. And I’m so, so fucking proud of you guys that are taking those steps. It’s so hard! Shit, we’re all works in progress (myself included). But any progress is progress and you should be proud of that. I’m proud of you. Legitimately proud. Like a fat, sassy, ginger den mother or something.
FUCK YOU GUYS THE INTERNET IS REALLY SWELL AND SHIT. I COULD JUST UGLY CRY RIGHT NOW.
