Being Human is Easy (When It’s Not Hard)

Sometimes I don’t like the way my body looks. When I start gaining weight, my face becomes a little rounder, and it’s the thing I’m most insecure about. Some days I wish I could scrub away my acne scars.

I love how my eyelashes are only curly at the very tips. I love my legs. I love the color of my hair and my eyebrows and the way my arms can push me up when I do a push-up. I love that I laugh a lot — too much, my mom would argue.
