mercenary-tributary:


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.

I went to the beach the other day and I didn't bring my swim suit. I didn't pack it because I was set on not swimming because of stupid insecurities. However, once I got there I couldn't sit out on the fun. It was stupid. I was shamed for having a bit of a belly. I looked around to see that other girls, just like me that just have a bit of fat were enjoying themselves. so I took off my top and went in the water in my bra and shorts. I'm glad I did. Hiding is stupid!!!!

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
