Hi everyone my name is Mimi, and all of my life i’ve been insecure about my shape.
Since i was a kid i’ve had the nickname “Buddha Belly” because of my stick-outy stomach. That name has been been stuck into my mind since then, telling me that there was something wrong with the way that my stomach looked, and the way that all of me looked. Although now that i’m in treatment for my anxiety and depression i’m starting to feel so much better.
My belly isn’t me, and my belly isn’t ugly. No matter how it looks, my stomach does not and never will determine my worth. Though i’m still working through my various insecurities i try to tell myself everyday “If you feel fantastic, you are fantastic. If you don’t feel fantastic, you are still fantastic.”
As i keep working on myself, i know i can feel fantastic always, which is exactly how everyone deserves to feel.
