Love Yourself

Written from the inspirational https://christinebialczak.com/2022/12/13/simply-6-minutes-welcome-to-the-challenge-12-13-2022/

the abominable snowman, that’s what they call me.

I try not to be offended but their words hurt. What made it worse was the bullies putting snow feet in front of the school. When I was little, I used to love my big feet, making footprints in the snow to make the human’s jump. Now, I hide them, under layers and layers of socks.

Still they laugh.

Mum says, I need to still be proud. Look at Dad’s feet – he can take a walk up a mountain and still be home for breakfast. Our dog, Tiny, loves going with him. I need to send a message, it doesn’t matter – I love them just the way they are.

Today, with my mobile in my hand, I took a selfie of those feet, posting it on social media before they could. Within minutes, someone said, ”wow! love your feet, I wish mine were like yours.’

Now, the laughter cannot be heard over my friend’s love.
