Letter to the media
Social Media, this includes everyone who has a social media account or at least goes on something like that once in a while.
I used to love my body, I felt confident and that was just enough for me. I used to look at myself in the morning, smile and then get ready.
Social Media, I used to love my life. You know, the one you make look so small now. I used to love the way I was, even if my teeth weren’t perfectly white or I had a little extra skin here and there.
I don't love my body anymore, I tolerate it. I don't love my teeth anymore, I whiten them. You have destroyed the entirety of who I used to be.
I used to love all my clothes and now there just too big. Because social media? Your breaking me apart.
I watch what I eat now, I pay close attention to my teeth. Make sure I stand a certain way in pictures.
My stomach growls now, it doesn't stop. Not until I have to get up in the middle of the night to eat yogurt and then try to finally sleep.
Social Media, I don't love my flaws anymore. I used to think the smile on my face was just enough.
Social media, hear me now. I am not going to let you fool me anymore with your poses and your flaunts. I will admire myself not you, not the money you've spent to make yourself feel better.
Social media. I see myself through his eyes now. I am beautiful and you can't change that.
