Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.
I am a fat woman who doesn’t want to lose weight.
I am a fat woman who wants to be happy.
I am a fat woman who wants to be accepted.
I am a fat woman who doesn’t want to be a fetish.
I am a fat woman who loves her body.
I am a fat woman who wants to fucking live like everyone else without having to validate her fucking existence.
The only thing that’s keeping me motivated to go change my laundry is the fact that I get to stop in the kitchen and heat up leftover tacos.
Such delicious. Much ready.
