missshirlee To write love on her arms. Does anyone else remember that? Let me take you down a trip to memory lane. I used to hate myself because I thought I was not enough. I used to think I was overweight, so I binged quite often. I used to think my face was deformed and my torso way too short for my legs. So I hid my face and shied away from people. I was put down for being weird, bullied for being too dark, told that I wasn't enough by too many people. And unfortunately, back then, I wasn't strong enough to stop myself from letting their words, their ignorance, their stupidity... Get to me. So I believed in each vulgar word they hissed at me. It sunk into my skin, and ran through my blood. "I am stupid, worthless, and ugly. I do not deserve this life I live." These words were what ran through my mind, everyday. I was too weak to let my friends and family help me, and had too much pride to ask for help. But I needed it badly. I had begun to hurt myself, mentally with the words. But one day, the whole "To Write Love on Her Arms" movement stirred up. And I realized that I wasn't a great person, but I wasn't a horrible one either. I wrote love on my own arms, and told myself it was either now or never. I'd have to learn to accept my flaws, work on them or move on. I'd have to learn to love myself. And I eventually did. It took time, work, and effort. It took years for me to find myself some self confidence, despite the scars, despite the pain. And now, these scars will stain my memory of what could have been if I didn't go through all of that. But I've learned so much from it. And I have become such a better person. So for those of you that's bullied me, shunned me away, hated me... I thank you. For your ignorance has given me the strength to fight on, the confidence to let go, and the power to not give a damn fuck. || : @vshaphoto || BY THE WAY FOR THOSE THAT WENT TO #SPOCOM YESTERDAY, if you took photos of me/with me, tag me! #missshirlee is the name, don't forget it!

missshirlee It's crazy, isn't it? How four years passed through so quickly? June, 2011, I walked from Irvington High School. It's now 2015, and I am a proud graduate of Palo Alto University. Thank you for those who supported me and believed in me. Thank you, mom and dad, for bringing us to the states for the opportunity to do what I have done. Thank you, mom and dad, for pushing me to the limits and teaching me to be strong no matter what. Thank you, to my family, my two sisters and my brother, for encouraging me throughout my time here. Thank you to my best friends, to my love, and to my puppy, for keeping an eye on me to keep keeping on. All of the support I've had these past years - I never would have made it without you all. You've played such a huge role in my journey this far, and I will make you proud! I will continue my studies in psychology, with the intention of graduating again with my Master's .
Thanks to my peers in class for keeping the past two years entertaining. We all struggled, working and studying full time. And in our senior year, we added an internship to the mess that we were already struggling in. We've jump through obstacles and ran through thick mud... And it's been such a long ride. But we made it! Here's to us!! Class of 2015!!! #ididit #classof15 #graduate
