I’ll go weeks and weeks without buying anything new or changing the way I wear my clothes. After a while, this becomes ridiculously uninspiring and I try to stay indoors to avoid going out in an outfit I don’t like.
My body image and self-confidence issues didn’t just appear out of no where. It took years for the insidious thoughts to peak and for me to realize that wow, yeah I hate myself.

Everyone is, and everyone knows that everyone is but we don’t change. Dressing your self according to what you like, according to what makes you feel good should be the only way to do it.
