I was organizing my room and I came across this photo. I stared at it for a few minutes meanwhile I was getting emotional. A few years back this photo didn't look like this. I had my feet in the photo. For majority of you know over the years I've opened up about having brachymetatarsia. Let's just say it was harder then you all probably think. But the amount of love I received was unbelievable. It was hard to accept that I was different. My experiences telling my loved ones was a weight lifted off my chest. Not because I kept it from them. It was me being comfortable and not knowing if they would accept me for me. With all the acceptance I received it became easier to wear sandals and flip flops around them. A few years ago I wasn't thinking. I hated this photo because you could see my flaws. So I decided to cut off the bottom of the photo. Today as I was staring at this photo I got emotional because I regret doing it. I can't ever get it back the way it was. After realizing what I did I know now to think about the future and not in the moment. As I know there's no way of going back in time but now I have to live with knowing that I made a mistake. I'm human we all are. It happens. I also realized back then I wouldn't of known where I'd be feeling the way I do about my brachymetatarsia today. Therefore, I am grateful that I still have this photo and to remember the details of what I felt that day and how crazy it is to know where I stand. I want to thank all my loved ones on the continuous support even though it doesn't seem like a big deal, it's always been to me hiding from the world.
Love the girl who makes mistakes
