A girl shared a story of how she suffered from self esteem issues way back from her Primary school days as she was an overweight child and was constantly the topic of her friends jokes.
Even though she has slimmed down as the years go by and have gone from flab to fit, she still suffers from these issues.
To give herself some validation, she would send pictures of herself in her birthday suit to friends whom she have befriended online from her shoulder down.
Here is the story
“I was an overweight child back in my Primary school days and as a result of my flabbiness, I have always been the topic of my friends jokes.
This caused me to really have self esteem issues in my growing up years even until now.
I have lost weight throughout the years and have legit grown from flab to fit but I still suffer from these self esteem issues as the amount of jokes I received from people in the past is still etched deep into my mind.
Right now I’ve been playing online games for a while and I’ve met some really, really fantastic people from all across the globe.
We only know each other’s name mostly and generally, I’ll talk to anyone to break the ice and if I find some sort of kinship or common ground and we talk regularly, then I consider that they are my friend in real life as much as they are in gaming.
Girls/guys, it doesn’t matter.
It’s definitely an ego thing and since I have struggled with body image and self confidence my whole life, getting to know these people before they have a chance to judge my body makes me more willing to share things with them and appreciative of them.
Some have tried to flirt with me and asked for my photos and I would usually send them photos of me from my shoulders down in my birthday suit to gain validation.
In short, my theory is if they ask for it photos then they’re getting it, and I just hope that they’re getting some satisfaction from it.”
