The picture on the left is me about 2 years ago. The picture on the right is a selfie I took a minute ago. I completely changed who I was to win a pageant and be more successful in my modeling career. I dyed my hair blonde, whitened my teeth to the point of pain, spray tanned regularly, dieted constantly, and worked out every chance I got. While some would say I looked good, I was miserable. I fried and destroyed my hair trying to go blonde, I put myself through unnecessary pain, and ended up in therapy for an eating disorder that could of taken my life. I emotionally and physically destroyed myself trying to be someone I'm not. I know I'm not the only one who has done this, and as I reflect I realize how dumb the whole thing was. It has taken a couple years and a lot of perseverance to reach this point but I can finally say I'm falling in love with myself as my mind and body heal from the damage that has been done. My hair is naturally dark ash brown, I love chocolate and tacos. My birthmark is actually pretty cool. I love makeup but am way too lazy to put it in every day. I'm obsessed with animals and have conversations with my pets daily. I enjoy all things girly but also love going outside and getting dirt on my hands. I love Jesus but mess up from time to time, I can be classy but I cuss sometimes....I'm not perfect and don't want to pretend to be. It's exhausting trying to be someone I'm not. Consider this me taking my mask off. #unmasked #UM #revealtherealyou #strength #bebrave #bebold #beyou #innerbeauty #brand #girls #idratherbehatedforwhoiamthanlovedforwhoimnot #walkingthetalk #iactuallyhatethesmellofspraytan
