Being body-shamed almost tore me down but made me proud of who I am.
They used to call me all kinds of stupid names because I am chubby.
Since grade one they used to body-shame me, I used to cry and even thought of changing school.
But my mom told me, people talk and will always talk. So don’t let them discourage you, love yourself the way you are.
That’s when I learnt to be who I am
Love myself the way I am with all my flaws.
I am who I am
What people say about me is just their opinions
That has nothing to do with me.
That can’t define who I am
I am who I say I am
