    Women Are Sharing The Qualities That Changed From "Insecurity" To "Unique Feature" And It's Frankly Refreshing

    I swear this is the most refreshing content on the internet.

    Children are very impressionable. One wrong comment we hear as a child can have us hiding huge parts of what makes us unique for years. I grew up hating my arms and not wearing sleeveless clothes. After a while, I realized that I started loving them, and now I wear whatever I want.
