16 Thank You's in 16 Day's | Day 10: to the inspiring Little Mix

Dear Little Mix,

Last year I hit rock bottom with my depression, my anxiety, my self-love and confidence. The medication that I was taking caused me to lose a lot of weight. My face became thinner, I could see my ribs, I lost my bum, which was pretty much the only thing I liked about myself. I just felt like I'd lost my whole identity. And then I started listening to your music. It was extremely empowering so so I started watching your live performances and interviews. You're strong, you're fierce, you're confident and honest. You're four intelligent business women, living your dream on your own terms, whilst always staying true to who you are.

This time last year, I would only wear padded bra's. And I'm talking extreme padding. I hated having small boobs. I felt embarrassed by them actually. I thought that men would only find me attractive if I had big boobs. But thanks to Jade and Leigh-Anne, I now love my small boobs. I don't even wear a bra most of the time now.

I'm thanking you girls today because you truly have helped me become the woman I am today. You ignited a spark in me that made me realise the importance of being a feminist and fighting for women's rights. You made me realise that my confidence comes from within and that the only person who has to find me beautiful is me. Thank you for helping me find my identity again. Thank you for empowering me to be the best possible version of myself. Thank you for being there when I need a confidence boost. Thank you for reminding me that I'm a strong ass woman. Thank you for making me realise that there's always going to be people who don't like me, but that I shouldn't let it affect how I see myself. Thank you for making me see that opinions do not dictate my worth. Thank you for helping me be me, unapologetically.

-Love Han, a girl you don't know exists. xo
