Staying Positive #5 - Gwenn (@gwenn_tan) Shares Her Story With Us!


 

“Being naturally slender all my life, I have faced many body positivity issues. It is tough for me to gain any weight due to my high metabolic rate. To others being able to eat whatever they want and staying thin is a dream. 

Over the years, I have received many comments about my body. I used to think and overthink the comments made about my body. 

Sometimes people don’t realize that skinny shaming hurts just as much as fat shaming. 

As I got older, I became more self-aware about the way I looked. 

The scars left behind on my body from eczema determined how I dress and still do to a certain extent. When I head out, I prefer wearing long pants or dresses as it covers up the scars that I even till this day have trouble accepting. 

I know that it is part of my body, and there is little I could do about it. 

Trying to accept and love my body is an ongoing journey. 

Don’t care about what people say or think about you. Live your life to the fullest, wear whatever you want to do, what you always want to do. No more what if’s! 

Go to that audition!

Go to that casting!

Wear that dress!

When you get older and look back on these small moments in life when you did what you wanted to, you would thank yourself…”

“IN THE END… We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.” 
-Lewis Carroll
