    You are real, and you are beautiful. You should be cherished, and seen for the gem that you are (every woman should).
    Keep on keepin on’ lady!

    You know what the stretch marks on your tummy made me think of? You know that image of being in the ocean and looking up towards the sky, and there’s a school of fish circling overhead with the light shining down, making the water impossibly blue and the fish glow? That’s what I thought of immediately. Beautiful.

    You look like me. I always thought I was ugly, but you are beautiful. I can’t be ugly while you are beautiful if we look the same. Thank you. So much.
