Loving My Size is a great article about embracing your outer self. The girl in the article talks about how she thinks she sticks out, because of the way she is built, and her shoe size, which she has no control over. The author mentions how she used to hide from her fears, until one day she realized she doesn’t hate her body, and in fact is proud of the way she is built. She doesn’t care what anybody else thinks anymore. She walks tall and proud now, which we all should learn how to do.

I think the storyline is one of those life lessons. We all should be proud of who we are, not ashamed of the way we look. The saying “it shouldn’t count on what’s on the outside, but what’s in the inside” applies quite nicely here. I think from this submission we could all learn a little something about loving ourselves.
