I’m sorry for the generic post.
This is my mother. She is 54 years old.
Today, while out shopping for well-needed new pants, my mom cried in the ladies dressing room because a pair of jeans didn’t fit. She didn’t let me see, but I could tell she had cried a little when she exited the room because her eyes were reddish and glossy. She looked sad, and said, “I’m too fat for these jeans,” and other things alike. I have never been so heartbroken in my entire life, and I almost cried.
I feel like my mom thinks she is too ugly to wear certain things, and I see it every tie we go shopping. “I can’t wear this shirt, it will show how fat I am,” or, “I can’t fit in this top because it will show my bulges.”
Please tumblr, I want to show my mom that I am not the only person that thinks she is absolutely beautiful. In fact, she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my entire life.
Please reblog this and help me prove to her that hundreds, maybe thousands of other people think she is beautiful, too. I really want to try and boost her confidence, I love my mother so much.
Such a beautiful lady. (: Reading this post broke my heart; my mom has that mindset as well where she thinks she’s “ugly” or “fat” or whatever, and she’s not at all.
