I may not be skinny, have blue eyes or straight blonde hair.. but im ok with that. by 

why is it that the media, models, and celebrities insist on this unrealistic image? Have they not noticed that most woman arent comfortable with themselves because they dont suit the model image. I have learned to accept that i cant change my body, and i’m unique the way i am. I shouldnt have to worry what people say i should look and be like, just for them to like me. [[that is me]]

    great image and comments,,,,we are constantly being pushed by the “media” of what women should be,,, whether it be a super mum, skinny model,,,,,,ect… I have had over 10 knee operations, and have the scars to prove it,,, I feel like if I go out, I need to cover my legs,, as I see them as being ugly,, ect. It is only when I am in the company of people that I am close to, do I ever wear a dress or skirt that shows my knees…. well done on this,,, it is very powerful and we all need to get the message out, that not all women are a size 0 or a super model!!! Love this, well done

  • while i was reading this..
    i was seriously saying in my mind “You go girl!”
    haha. aw, I’m sure anyone who would judge you by your scars needs a little slap in the face. I have a lot of softball scars on my knees, and i have a dark birthmark on my whole right arm. People used to make fun of me in elementry school about them. But hey, it makes us who we are right? its a part of us, and tells a story.
    and thank you! for this comment, one of the most deep comments i’ve ever had =]
