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?

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
