"I was always the, ‘skinny girl.’ Some girls would call me anorexic just because of how my body was made. I used to eat so much that I would get sick just to have a ‘normal body.’ Then I realized that I don’t have to change my body for people to love me. I am so worth loving, and so are you!"
“I’ve always been the girl with the big nose. I used to hope that time would pass so I could get plastic surgery. Time passed and I got older, the name-calling and teasing stopped hurting…rather than wounds, they were scars I could look back on as proof of my strength and endurance.
"When I was 19, I met my now husband. He loved my nose and he loved me. I am so thankful for time… We think things won’t get better but time heal’s all!
"Thankful for the SWL family. Glad to know there are others who have grown and endured.”
- Written by a loved one who is not alone.
"In college, a friend gave me a card that said, ‘You are enough.’ It stung. It sounds silly, but I realized I didn’t feel that way. I was so used to being praised for how much I gave - to a degree how selfless I was. But, I didn’t feel worthy of love just for my pure presence. I’m choosing to believe that now."
- Written by a lovely and worthy heart.
What beauty you shine when your unique face smiles.
