You don't have to explain yourself to someone who is far from knowing and seeing the truth, that's why they message you anonymously. They don't have the balls to speak to you face to face!
I’m good with it.
It gives me a chance to explain myself.
If they were right, I’d own up.
Since they’re wrong I just tell them why.
It not a big deal to me.
Messages like that don’t hurt me.
They don’t matter to me at all.
If I didn’t want to answer I wouldn’t have.
I’m here to be honest.
I’m here to tell my story - about how I found my confidence and how it changed my life.
I’m talk about my life and my mistakes and my feelings because seeing/reading that might help someone else.
Someone might relate.
Someone may not make the same mistake.
Why do people feel compelled to be so awful to you? You are one of the kindest and most genuine people I've ever met online. Every negative ask that you get confuses the hell out of me. You're nice. You're creative. You're lovely both physically and intellectually. Their whole rudeness is uncalled for.
Honestly….people question me, my actions and my opinions but I really don’t get any hate.
People don’t send me nasty messages just to be nasty - I’ve seen other plus models get real hate and I don’t think any of the messages I receive touch that.
And in general I don’t mind. I’m honest. I feel like the images I post can be powerful in that they can spark conversation. Hey - there’s a naked fat girl who isn’t trying to play into any type of porn/fantasy/fetish. That can be different - people are going to have opinions about what I do, they’re going to assume things about who I am, they’re going to question me….ultimately to me, that means I’m doing something right.
And really, the more questions people ask like the ones I answered tonight only gives me a greater voice.
I have no issues :)
And thank you love, for the compliments. I adore you and forever wish we lived closer.
Didn’t say that at all. In my 30 years I’ve completely told lies.
When I was younger before I found myself - I hated everything I was as well as everything I saw in the mirror. I was so ashamed of who I was, the type of family I came from, our financial situation - everything that I told lies and pretended to be what I thought was normal.
It was a super sad existence. I was young. In my opinion I did more damage to myself than good but I just didn’t want anyone to know about my actual home life….
So there was a point in my life where I legit told lies about everything.
Now I don’t think I lie about anything.
I will admit though that I sometimes change my opinion - as I learn more. As I get more information which I think is mature and not lying.
I also - in personal situation sometimes try to speak through my emotions too quickly before I’ve felt through them and understand them. Which isn’t good for me, sometimes I’ll say something in the moment that doesn’t end up being the complete truth. I’m not sure if that will make sense to a lot of people….
You're probably the most honest and endearing person on tumblr. I love the lane you created for yourself. I happily follow due to your honesty. I can't stand these fake Internet personalities. Be who you are. Continue to do great things. I hope to meet you someday. Peace and blessings.
I find the questions people ask me on tumblr in the past couple months so weird and out there. Maybe it’s how they pose them?
Either way you should know that I’m never pretending to be anything. The first thing I am always is honest.
I think people have a really hard time with that because they want me to have an internet persona. I was talking about this last night actually with girliegunshow. How I meet people from the internet and sometimes I get the indication that they expected me to be really different than I am. I think it’s because what I do or who I am on the internet is very visual. And I think because of that some people may look at my pictures, pass over my writing and opinions and essentially make up a box to fit me in.
Maybe I’m a little off topic but my point is that like…if you REALLY follow me I think I share enough for you to get a pretty good idea of who I am. And that’s someone who doesn’t feel the need to pretend to be anything she’s not.
I don’t know what this question is referring to exactly but I do drink sometimes. It’s not consistent. I’m super guilty of getting drunk off mimosas most times I go for brunch. I had nights with girlfriends where we have too much wine and talk all night. In the last little while I went through some hard things in my life and was drinking alone at night to get away from feeling the things I did.
Straight up - there you go.
So if that makes one of the words you wrote on the box you have for me “pretend boozy” so be it.
