a #facetofacefriday and #decadechallenge combo 🥴
rly glad i got some glasses that fit my face a lil better and confidence i never thought i could have. middle school sucked. i moved around a lot before then, so i started sixth grade not knowing anyone in a new town. this pic is from eighth grade, and i was still so uncomfortable. i didn’t have many friends, but the ones i had impacted me and i’m grateful (lookin’ at you rachael). i got made fun of for my weight, my skin, my interests, my clothes, you name it. but i survived, and she’s flourishing. 🥰
if you bullied me in middle school or even high school, i’m tryna forgive you. i know some of you are reading this, but you may not even remember what you said to me. i do. it was a tough time for all of us, and i’m sure there were things goin’ on behind your cold demeanor, just as there were with me.
be kind today 💛
