"Hi I'm Caroline. I have a squishy butt and tummy, I have cellulite and scars.
I want to own and run my own bridal salon and help woman of all shapes and health issues, tattoos, piercings and scars to not feel beautiful in a dress..but have them go "I made this dress look good."
But not many know I'm so uncomfortable OUT of my clothes.
I have RA, it's painful and tiring and I don't always feel like I deserve to be loved, especially by my boyfriend. I can feel defeated and broken in so many ways and most of all feel like a burden on everyone around me.
BUT I know that I am strong and people with disabilities may not always LOOK beautiful but we are. I have met the most amazingly kind and caring people with disabilities. You are not unworthy! You are not ugly!
You are strong, even when you can't open the peanut butter jar. I am not posting this for compliments for myself but to encourage anyone who might be fighting with health issues that no one can see or understand or inner demons telling them "you will never be as pretty as her" that YOU ARE GORGOUES IN EVERY WAY! Don't let anyone make you feel unwanted! This goes for BOTH men and woman! I see men who get down on themselves. But what I see is strength and courage.
Keep on keepin on you guys. And thank you Alyssa for this amazing experience."
