This is a place of encouragement, a place to discuss body image, insecurities, self-esteem, and everything under the umbrella of fighting self-hate and finding self-love.

No matter what you look like, what color, what gender, sexual orientation, what size or however many "flaws", healthy, not healthy, working on it, abled, disabled, we are all human, we all deserve to be happy, we all deserve to love ourselves. With this blog you will see all kinds of REAL bodies, REAL people, REAL stories.

(Please don’t reblog to inappropriate websites). This is what I look like without any make up and my bangs pulled back. Some people may have foreheads and others even have fiveheads, but I’m convinced I have a sixhead. I’ve just lived with it by merely hiding my face under my bangs but I would do anything to change this flaw. I think I look like a boy with my hair pulled back. In high school, other kids laughed at me and made fun of my forehead and every time I tried to brave the world “bangs-less”, I would get weird looks. Well, for all you fivers and sixers, here is me. I still haven’t accepted having such a extremely high forehead but I though revealing myself publicly would be my first step. Thank you SHYB.

Hi, this is my tummy as of right this second. I used to desire abs and a dark tan. Recently, I’ve chosen to embrace my softness and pale skin as strengths and it seems that people are noticing. Never before have I felt such a warm comfort from friends and strangers concerning my image. It feels great to find such lovely confidence. I find my tummy beautiful now!

Even though many people have pointed out that I am a slim girl, I still feel insecure about my body but it wasn’t until I took this picture did I finally get some confidence about my body :) (age 19)

Thigh highs aren’t strictly just for skinny gals, chubby ones can wear them too! I love these ones from sockdream.com.

Okay so when I’m high I think I’m so pretty. That’s why I love Mary Jane she makes me so comfortable in my skin. So when I’m high I usually take really confident pictures of myself like the ones above, but I’ve never actually gone through with posting them. So right now I’m posting them so people see how happy I am in my skin. I learned to love every piece of me. It’s okay to be happy with who you are. They say the one who is confident in her skin is sexy but that one who doesn’t know she’s sexy is Beautiful. Well I say fuck that! We need to be confident, this is the skin we were born in too and the skin we’re growing old in so let’s enjoy being who we are! If any of you ever need to talk or simply someone to listen, i’m here crazycrush.tumblr.com

Alex 16,  FTM. I’m working hard on loving the body i was given even if it isn’t the one i know I know I was supposed to have. Hit me up with any questions. I’m always looking for new people to talk too.

I’ve been on tumblr a long time, and while I always embraced body positivity, I don’t think I ever realized how down on myself I actually was.
My best friend took this photo of me a year ago while on our trip to Europe. 
When I saw it, I was really insecure about it.  I felt that I looked large and tired and overall bloated.  I put it aside for such a long time, I forgot it existed, and I avoided photographs for a long time.  While I always encouraged friends to embrace their bodies and practice positive thinking, I wasn’t really doing the same for myself.  I preached that I was comfortable in my own skin, yet I still refused to be photographed (which is a hard thing to do, surrounded by art major, I might add).
In the past year, I’ve done a lot of work with myself emotionally, and I see things differently now.
-I have fat, but I am so much more than that.
-Yes my face is squishy.  But it’s the only one I have and I will have to live with it my entire life, so I might as well love it. :)
-I look happy here, and that’s what’s most important.  A healthy mind and a healthy body. <3
I came across this photo again today, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH.  I love my body and my face and I’m not so insecure anymore.  I’m happy with myself, physically and emotionally :)
I will make sure to submit more often- I love all you awesome folks!

Binging has led me to gain basically a large amount of weight in a short amount of time, so I’m far from my “base weight”. I’ve had body dysmorphia my whole life but I was able to manage it; my mind was never filled entirely of thoughts about my body’s form and weight until the last, idk, 5 years of my life? This recent weight gain, from the past 6-7 months, has added a lot of stress and increased my depression, and I just haven’t been doing well. The photos I’m submitting are of areas that are hardest for me to accept. I have to accept these things in order to function this upcoming fall semester. xoxo

I haven’t submitted in a long time and even though I thought I was in a good place the last few times I did submit, I am now even better…This just proves that you can always improve our attitude towards anything…yourself, your life etc. I started kickboxing this year and yeah it has helped me change my body on the outside but also I have become amazed at the things my body can do and all i can think is fuck yeah my body is so strong and capable just the way it is :) 
Keep staying strong! Every day is a new step into loving yourself :)
