Fixing some anatomy issues tonight

Sometimes you have to accept that a person has moved on and just doesn’t care about you the way you hope they do. The feelings that where once there are there no longer and in it’s place lies regret and hatred. Not necessarily hatred but a hostility they can’t get over. They might be oblivious to it and have no intention of it but its there. It’s in the way they treat you. Accept the fact that she isn’t the same and theres no room for you in her new life. You must disconnect and start a new. It’s not that you love them any less but it’s the right thing to do. Perhaps I should say good bye since she’s been such a integral figure in my life and my work and although we might not communicate, she is present. She is present in a thought or idea. In a phrase or in a painting. She’ll always be there because she changed me. Through her I learned about many things. I tried vigorously and perhaps with my hopes too high. I must let go of this dream and search for a new one.

some new stuff I’m working on, I get tons of anonymous messages like this every day and while this isn’t unique to women, the content of the messages and the frequency in which I get them are definitely related to my gender. I almost exclusively get them after I post selfies. The authority people feel they have to share their opinion on my appearance is something myself and many other girls online deal with daily.
