So relatable!

Briseyda Ponce is a 17-year-old from Texas who likes to run almost every day. Last week, she was surprised to get asked by her 8-year-old cousin Allysson if she could join her. While they were running, Briseyda found out that the reason Allysson wanted to exercise was because some girls in her class and her crush, Hector, called her fat!

"I [explained] to her how beauty isn't physical, and if she wants to work out or run it has to because she wants to be healthy, not because of others' opinions about her body. We [laughed] it off," she told Buzzfeed.com

When Allysson got tired, she stopped running and whipped out a Rice Krispie Treat and ate it! So instead of finishing their run, they walked around the block and Briseyda continued to explain how beautiful her cousin is.

She uploaded it on Twitter because she found it so darn cute, but didn't expect it to go viral. Now that her tweet got picked up by so many websites and TV shows, Hector's gonna find out about Allysson's crush on him big time! (via buzzfeed.com)

Below are the five things we learned from Allysson's super relatable situation:

  1. Exercise for no one else but you.

"I told her if she wants to workout to be healthy it's okay," Briseyda replied to one tweet.

  1. Don't let a guy stop you from being yourself.

If he does, he's not worth your time, obvi."

  1. Forget about what other people have to say.

You do you!

  1. Always have a back up plan in case you change your mind.

In Allysson's case, it's a Rice Krispies Treat!

  1. There will be people who'll say negative things, but there will be a lot more who will support you.

Hector and the girls may think Allysson's fat, but for the rest of the world (via Twitter replies), she isn't!

Did you find Allysson's story super relatable, too?

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
