Quotables from Annie Segarra
There’s so many people that live in shame about their disabilities and isolate themselves from the community that they could potentially have.
That’s a huge conversation, the fact that people of any gender think that their beauty is the price that they have to pay to exist.
When you discover your truths about yourself, by being welcoming to those communities and engaging with those communities, diversifying your social circles and diversifying your social media feeds, then it’s amazing. You get to learn about other people and in that learn about yourself.
I’m gonna love my body, in spite of all this programming and all of this messaging.
