Beauty is not about size

Every girl has struggled with self esteem based on body image.  "I'm too short.  I'm too fat.  My arms are too big.  I wish my legs were longer.  I wish my thighs didn't touch.  I wish my neck was thinner."  Do any of these things sound familiar?  I know they hit home for me.  As a teen I struggled with eating disorders to try to achieve that perfect body.  The thing is, that perfect body is unhealthy.  I'm not naturally built to be a size 00.  It took me all of my teenage years to learn to accept my body for what it is.  The important thing is being healthy.  Beauty isn't based on size.  I think Robyn Lawley is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen, and she's considered plus size.
