a spirit that preys on the insecurities of young girls. on approaching one, it whispers venomously backhanded compliments, and delivers unneeded, often damaging advice in order to undermine the girl’s confidence and control her so that she may be devoured easily by the spirit.
the best way to ward it off is to appear unfazed by its insidious manipulations and stare directly into its great, luminous eyes until it gets uncomfortable and leaves.
when someone makes a joke about something you’re insecure about
when your family jokes at something you’re insecure about and you just
when people make a joke about one of your secret insecurites
Fight your negative thoughts — always.
You’ve described so many experiences I’ve had to a T! I’ve missed out on so many fun water things because of tummy/boob/thigh/butt insecurities.
I’m SO HAPPYYYYYYYY that you extinguished those negative voices in your mind before the day was up! super brave and awesome <3
