I know this is a place for mainly sob stories, but for once, I'm happy with myself.
For most of my life, I was the chubby kid, the funny friend, the smart one. Now, I've finally become "attractive".
Since I first got instagram, I would always see the popular girls comments filled with "You're so pretty!" "Gorgeous!!!" "Cutie!!!!", and my posts would be comment-less.
My two best friends are drop dead gorgeous. I love them to death. But often times among my friends, I'd feel like the odd one out, not attractive, not super athletic, no perfect body, style, or hair.
Around this year, I finally became happy with myself (after a bit of struggling with my body), I found a style I liked, and looked good in. I started getting comments like "cute", "gorg!", "stunning!" and man it made me feel good.
I guess that's one thing about social media, it makes you think things about yourself.
But another thing that I realized is that I can do the same for other people. Those instagram comments mean a lot, I didn't know that before.
Anyways, I'm just happy because for the first time in my life, I feel attractive.
