By now, most of us know that the comments section under YouTube videos (and everywhere else for that matter) are where good manners go to die. While sure there may be a few polite exchanges, they’re usually peppered among an onslaught of hate and negativity.
“I use to be a big girl,” Dosh began in the heartfelt caption. “My whole life growing up I hated taking pictures, I hated family events, I hated anything that would force me to see myself. Back then I thought that the person I was on the outside was what would open doors for me, find me love, show my talent, etc. But you get older, you get wiser and realize people don’t change.”
In this current post, Dosh is seen applying makeup to fellow beauty blogger ChaseMUA. In the video ChaseMUA’s face lightens up (from within, but yes with a little highlighter, too) as Dosh gives her the full treatment.
“They get meaner they get angrier they get more ignorant. What changes is how you feel about yourself,” Dosh continued. “Being bigger doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you. You’re not ‘pretty for a big girl’ or ‘sexy for a big girl.’ You’re just beautiful and sexy for a human being. Change when you want to change, on your own time. You are the leader on your journey. I went so many years scared to do something I loved because I was afraid of myself, honestly.”
