Around 99% of people remember the first time they experienced insecurities and all the details about where and how it happened. Most of our insecurities develop from a very young age. But growing up with them doesn’t mean that they will mark our lives forever. Accepting our differences is the big step to overcoming our fears, and these people here show us that self-love always wins in the end.

1. “I’ve never loved my physical appearance but on my prom night I felt like a princess.”

2. “A childhood friend of mine got married yesterday. He is 5’2” and has embraced his height all these years."

3. “2019 vs 2021. Ever since I was very young, I’ve wanted to be an actress. 2 weeks ago, I decided to start pursuing my dream. I have my first paid role tomorrow.”

4. “Left pic 300 lbs, right pic 170 lbs! I feel much better!”
