"You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens."
I think I had one of those life changing moments today
I was listening to one of my favorite songs cause it reminded me of my second mom who passed away and I was thinking about how I’m not like my family at all because I feel like I was raised more by her than my parents She was this amazing person. And really I’m a lot like her.
She taught me to only care about the people and things that really matter, and to say f it to everything else. She taught me how to have a big heart and how to hold my head up even when the whole world feels like it’s tumbling down. She taught not to care so much about what I have for myself, but to think about what I can give to others. She was always helping people, always being their shoulder to cry on. She taught me how to be like that too.
And the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I am a great person because of everything I learned from her and I should really appreciate that more.
And then it hit me. I’m a GOOD PERSON. Why am I so worried about what other people think about me? Why am I constantly hating myself cause I don’t feel pretty enough or skinny enough or successful enough? Those things don’t define me. Who I am defines me.
If other people can’t see my worth, that’s there problem. Cause I’m done hating myself. I’ve spent years dealing with depression coming from the fact that I don’t like myself, so I don’t expect anyone else to like me either.
But I shouldn’t think like that, cause I was wrong. I am a much better person than I thought and anyone who tries telling me otherwise is wrong too.
It’s time that I started loving myself. And who knows, maybe pretty soon once I get comfortable with that I’ll be able to start sharing myself with other people, the way she shared herself with me and everyone else whose life she touched.
No matter how many times I see this, I still can’t decide whose face is the best.
This was my favorite part in the whole movie mostly because I had this image of Joanna and then I saw this and realized that she is NOTHING like how I imagined but that’s because she is ten times better than the Joanna I had in my head.

We know that Ke$ha has been in rehab for the past few weeks for an eating disorder, and we know that Ke$ha’s issues started when her team criticized her weight, but what we didn’t know was just how bad things were. Thankfully, Ke$ha’s mom, Pebe Sebert, is around to tell all kinds of truth about the situation, and this latest truth she told is probably the saddest, scariest truth of all:
"I’ve watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died. The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they’d never seen it that low except with someone who’d had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn’t already dropped dead on stage.”
And another sad story:
"One time on a conference call, Sonenberg [Ke$ha’s former manager] was screaming, ‘You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!’ Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.”
How can people be so awful? If this guy really did tell Ke$ha to do drugs to lose weight and/or “stick your finger down your throat,” then what kind of person is he? It’s one thing to dislike a person’s choice of clothing — what’s up, everybody — but it’s a whole different ballgame to tell someone to disregard her health because she’s maybe a few pounds too heavy for your personal taste. That’s absolutely disgusting.
One more thing from Ke$ha’s mom:
"At this point, she doesn’t care if she ever makes a record again. She just wants to be healthy and happy."
You do whatever you need to, Ke$ha, and we’ll love you regardless. Forget the douchebags. Stay awesome.

people are disgusting. people who feel the need to put anyone down for ANYTHING make me sick. how the fuck do you make someone feel that low and not feel the teeniest amount of guilt? how THE FUCK do you have absolutely zero empathy? are you that shallow? that involved in your own world that you can’t even consider another person’s perspective for even a second? AND YOU KNOW THE WORST PART? Yeah you can blame the one person cause he was the one who did it directly. But it wasn’t really just him, was it? It’s our whole society. Who cares how you feel as long as you look good. Make albums, look hot, make money, fuck your health no one cares about that anyways. Perpetuate the idea that your self worth directly based on your beauty and charm. And if you don’t have that? Well fuck your screwed cause that’s all that matters in life. STOP IT. I can’t fucking stand it anymore. I know I’ve felt the pressure too, I know a lot of people have. And I wanna say that it’s complete bullshit. YOU VALUE IS NOT BASED ON YOUR APPEARANCE AND YOU SHOULD NEVER LET PEOPLE MAKE YOU THINK THAT IT IS. YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR WEIGHT. YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR FACE OR YOU HAIR OR YOUR WAISTLINE. SO STOP THINKING THAT THOSE ARE THE ONLY THINGS ABOUT YOU THAT MATTER CAUSE THEY ARE NOT.
