Nice post Jessica! As a teen I truly cared not for what anyone thought. Then I realized supportive compliments mean more if I considered the dumb hate for a second. That did happen about the same time as I got into social media though, I can’t remember if that was before or after I got to blogging and talking about my health. That support I get on that keeps me going now. I don’t know if it is because Medium is mostly awesome people or what, but I have received mostly great support of everyone that comments and follows my posts.
