This isn’t some tan girl covered in makeup with perfectly straight hair and a perfect smile. This is a girl with Pfeiffer Syndrome, who has had bangs her whole life to hide her forehead and struggles everyday to be okay with looking this way. She’s had several surgeries and will have a couple more. she can’t wear makeup much, her eyes are sensitive. Her jaw is misaligned. Her forehead is too thick and has to be shaven down. Her cheekdowns have to be moved forward by surgery. when she was four she had something called a ‘halo’ which was a metal circle screwed into her skull and jaw.
though she fought through it medically, she struggles everyday with the emotional sideeffects. she doesn’t look like her family or her friends. she may never look normal. she has depression and eating issues because of what she has had to accept about herself. she has done awful things to be pretty.
nobody ever sees her without makeup or without bangs.
until now.
She, is me.
and if I make your blog ugly, than don’t reblog this. but if you can be one of the few people in my life who I know are fully comfortable with it, than reblog this so people know.
you are beautiful. even if you don’t realize it, you are. everyone is,

    The young woman you see above has a condition called Pfeiffer Syndrome.  For a blog post, which you should read here, she decided to pull back her bangs and not hide her face.  After creating her blog post and going to bed, she was shocked to wake up the following morning with many people calling her confidence and act of posting an unabridged pictures of herself a true inspirational message for modern society.

    This is the original post from Dushane:

    Writing about her experience on Huffington Post, Dushane reveals a great truth that everyone should take note of:

    “Who gave celebrities, magazines, and models the right to tell us what is “normal”? We see ad campaign after commercial after movie after celebrity red carpet, and take those messages as right. But in reality, shouldn’t we be able to define beautiful ourselves? Shouldn’t 10 nice comments weigh more than one negative? ”

    The message of truth from this young woman is a good wake-up call for our narcissitic, Kardashian-glitterati society.
