I am grateful for being mentally strong. Throughout my primary school life, I have been heavily shamed about my hairy body, what I wear and what I do and I have broken down a couple of times to my mother or sometimes on my own. I f you heard what they called me, you would’ve been shocked that kids/teens my age know cruel words like that. I used to be really confident and care less about what I wore or did last time as I was young but now I wear covered clothes such as jeans or sweaters but I gained some confidence and wear short sleeve shirts. In primary school, I used to have low self-esteem and depend on others for compliments and how good I look but from then I learnt that no one will love you if you don’t love yourself. If you see models or instagrammers, their pictures, it takes self-love and confidence to post it because they know that there will be negative comments posted on their pictures.
