Sometimes, no matter how much I dislike myself, I force myself to take a picture. Messy hair, in bed, no make-up, and yet I still like it. I like this picture and I’m not ashamed of who I am and especially not the size I am.

I posted this because I post all submissions and I understand where this person is coming from, but I feel like everyone should feel comfortable shopping at any store they want to buy clothes from, regardless of size. We can’t help that plus size clothes are so cute!
Sorority Stigmas: submitted by anonymous
So I have been following your Tumblr for a while now. I think it’s really great and gives a lot of girls hope as well as the comfort of knowing that they are not the only ones struggling.
All of that aside the reason I am writing is to address the topic of sororities. Not too long ago you made a post about it. This really struck me because I am in a sorority. Let me just start off by saying that I am indeed a curvy sister and have always struggled with my weight as well as self-esteem issues. When I came to college I knew I wanted to join a sorority, so I went out for formal recruitment.
As it turns out I was asked to join an organization, but I did not feel like I would fit in there, so I turned it down. The next year, I decided to give it another try. I ended up connecting really well with the girls in a certain organization and they offered for me to join. I can honestly say it is the best thing that has ever happened to me in college.
I am part of a sorority that is considered one of the “pretty sororities” on campus, even though I never have viewed myself this way. I am now a senior and have seen it from both sides. My advice to all the girls out there is to go for it. While there are going to be organizations that cannot see past the way you look, there are also ones that place more emphasis on who you are. My organization didn’t judge me by how much I weigh (and for those wondering I am exactly 50 lbs over weight), but rather how I presented myself and the person I was. These girls have helped me become the woman with confidence that before I was only pretending to be.
Don’t let the fear of rejection keep you from trying. There is a place for every one!
