Madgrowler sent in this gorgeous submission. Here’s what she said:
"In middle school, my mom fought tooth and nail with me over me getting a bikini. She wasn’t worried about modesty, she was concerned that I’d be showing people my fat stomach.
Over the past few years I’ve learned that I have one body, so I’d better love it. I feel sorry for my mom’s inability to recognize our beauty.”
Many people buy into the body-shaming tactics that are so pervasive in the media. It’s hard to be body positive when surrounded by messages that tell you your body is unacceptable if it doesn’t fit society’s ideal. I’m glad that you have learned to respect your body and have such confidence in it.

Thank you, Allison.. for being so perfect. I love you so much. This is for you.
