Saturday Vids: Andre’a – The 16 Year Old Body Image Role Model

This video needs little introduction – it speaks for itself – but I will say I originally saw this video on the website We Are The Real Deal and immediately wanted (want) to be Andre’a's best friend, because she is awesome, and we can all learn a thing or two from her confidence and positive message.

    Gotta tell you, that it took a lot of courage for you to do this. Also, I thank you. I’m far from a teenage girl, but work in MH/substance abuse.I’m active as a feminist,in a huge way!Stopped by this site, to tell you, I fell a little bit in love with you, when you made yourself vulnerable by making this tape. Who could not? You are so genuine in it. Thank you for sharing yourself with us. I feel you are beautiful inside, and it radiates to the out. In other words, though you are attractive…your insides, are what make you shine! They come all the way from deep inside, and up through the center of your being, Yep, I fell a little bit in love with you. I am a 53(fossil material to you, I’m sure…), yr old woman o was widowed at he age of 36m raising my son.I struggle also, not simply with the body, but also with the heart. It’s important that I love myself with no less than the passion I might love a lover with. If I feel like I could not take another breath, without this other person, then I aspire to reach this type of “in love” feeling for myself. It is basically called “nurturing the child within”…there’s a book by this name and I belieev a film…Angela Shelton puts it out in her “Survivor Manual”. However, I also am a member of Adult Children of alcoholics. This teaches us that dysfunctional parents are not our fate, so to speak, that we must all define and love ourselves. We get to do the things we always wanted to do. In short, “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. Keep rockin’ the world, telling your truth! And for heaven’s sake…never ever forget those words you spoke when you taped this…make them part of you. It was awesome and I was so inspired.

    Andrea, I too fell in love with you and your beauty! I also fell in love with your power and love of self! Your fire and passion will burn for eternity and ignite others! Right on!! @Green 725, I also love your statement in this post as well! It’s important that I love myself with no less than the passion I might love a lover with. “If I feel like I could not take another breath, without this other person, then I aspire to reach this type of “in love” feeling for myself.” Your father has done an amazing job of allowing you to be the expression and embodiment of self love!! I subscribed to your YouTube channel when you first posted your video! I continue to smile on your journey and soak up your radiant light! You go girl!!

    My brother recommended I would possibly like this web site. He was entirely right. This put up actually made my day. You cann’t consider just how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
