@Regrann from @julietachiara - 6 months ago I made one of the best choices of my life, which was removing my breast implants. I couldn’t take it anymore- the nerve pain when I moved, numb arms,IBS, hair falling out, allergic to everything, the overwhelming fatigue and being only 20 years old. I am so thankful to have listened to my body when it said these were not meant to be here.
Going through this journey has resulted in me being in the healthiest relationship with myself- I love what I look like, I love who I am, I honor my own process. When I look back and think about how badly I wanted breast implants- it looks so trivial to me. No one ever teased me for my natural breasts, I never had issues in my sex life because of them, clothing looked fine, etc- it was just me fixated on a part of my body- how stupid does that sound? Putting our bodies through hell to “look better”. Guys- your body is the vessel you live in- but there are so many other amazing things in this world to focus on, rather than what you look like. There are countries to see, adventures to be lived, health to embrace, gratitude to be had, people to connect with, food to eat, good sex -to truly make an impact on the short amount of time you have on this earth. Changing my aesthetic did not impact any of those- rather it made me sick, limited me, and made me lose sight of the most important things in my life.
Liberation came to me through this long, painful process. I feel authentic and clear about what matter in my life, I know my self worth, and I don’t let something as irrelevant as two silicone sacks in my body define my beauty or femininity.
I am now thriving. No more allergic reactions, no more fatigue, my hair is growing like rapunzel- my skin even shed off the week post surgery and now it glows. My scars are now a really cool story to tell and part of what makes me unique- we have too many followers and not enough leaders.
Warning: The pictures featured show my allergic reactions and hives (always around my breasts or chest area), hair loss, and explant surgery with lift.
