Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.

Wait let me be more specific
Society:
You need to have boobs the size of Canada, an ass that will put Nicki Minaj to shame, perfect porcelain skin with nary a single blemish, straight white teeth that will blind somebody that looks at them without sunglasses, hair that is thick and flows like a waterfall made of rainbows and unicorn tears, eyelashes that will touch your forehead and look natural doing it, soft hairless skin, and a smolder that will fry a chicken in a basket. You also have to be a size 00 because guys love it when they can see your ribcage.

Curvy women are real women. Skinny women are real women. Women who have had boob jobs or lip enhancements or liposuction are still real women. Women who wear makeup are real women. Size 0 may make no sense mathematically, but a woman who wears that size is as real as the one who wears a size 16. What makes us “real” people is not the shape of our flesh but our basic humanity. And we lose our humanity when we judge –not when we lose weight, gain weight, wear makeup or make the intensely personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.

It sucks that most of us feel this way, that we see ourselves to differently from the way people see us. It sucks thinking you’re not good enough, comparing yourself to every girl, thinking your bf can do better. We all have our insecurities and people don’t even notice. We’re too harsh on ourselves. I should be happier with myself, but I can’t when I’m constantly comparing myself to those girls I see on tv or here on tumblr. Pretending to be happy with yourself helps a bit though(: 
We all have qualities
