Dear Depression, I look fine.

I have always felt like a giant, and have been bigger than all the other females in my life. I look left and right and see size two’s or size four’s. My brain makes me feel like some freakish monster.

It is hard not to listen to what your brain tells you, but if you’re reading this and understand how I feel, just know that the girls in the magazines are not ideal. A comforting fact: The size of the average American woman is 170 pounds, and a size 14. Ignore what society gives examples of, skinny is not necessarily healthy, and more fat on your body, does not make you unhealthy.

It is also based on genetics and how your families are built. I know my post won’t change how you feel, so if you want to lose weight to make yourself happy, then do it. If you want to gain weight to make yourself happy, then do it. Focus on your mental and emotional health and do what makes you happy.

To all women reading: you are beautiful and good enough, do not let someone make you feel any different.

To all men reading: you are handsome and good enough, do not let someone make you feel any different.
