if I offered you $20, would you take it?
How about if I crumpled it up?
Stepped on it?
you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?
Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.
The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.
if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

Sirius spreading a rumour that he has a cat just so when people ask him about it he can go, “Nah, I’m a dog person.”
Peter being loud so when a teacher chews him out, he can promise to be “quiet as a mouse”
Remus skipping meals so people can hear his stomach grumbling and he can apologise for being “hungry like the wolf.”
Body and face acceptance can be so liberating. Even thought I think you’re cute as shut!
I’ve never not accepted my appearance. My views on my face/body haven’t changed in years. I “gave up” long ago. The only thing that has changed for me is my
level of narcissism openness and willingness to share photos of myself. I’ve evolved from “I’m not cute, nobody wants to see this” to “I’m not cute, but fuck it.” It’s less about my acceptance of myself and more about my utter lack of concern of whether other people accept me.
To clarify: A selfie isn’t a picture of yourself. It is a picture you take of yourself. You or someone else in the photo with you has to be holding the camera. Anything else is just a portrait
White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
