I never thought a simple Tumblr blog could have such a huge impact on how I feel about my body. I’ve spent years crying and despising myself for all my stretch marks, wondering why they kept turning up in places I thought they weren’t supposed to, and feeling like my body was ruined by them. Thanks to your blog (and of course the submissions), I can now look at my stretch marks with, at worst, indifference, and at best, acceptance and appreciation. Even plucking up the courage to go from black tights to see-through ones is a massive step for me which I thought I’d never be able to do, but it’s increased my confidence a lot. I resent the women’s magazines (which prove themselves to be more anti-woman than anything) for bullying me into feeling so disgusting, but I love your blog for turning that around. Thank you!
Thank you thank you!
