TikTok user says she’s the ‘happiest lazy eyed girl you’ve ever seen’

A young woman has inspired many people with her confident, positive attitude towards self-acceptance.

Elley Davies, 18, has amassed a following of 251,000 on TikTok, and many people are impressed with how she embraces their differences and refuses to let the trolls get her down.

After being diagnosed with a twisted eye, officially called strabismus, at the age of four, Elley always felt seen as “different” from those around her.

As already reported by the daystar, Elley refused to wear glasses as a child, and her “twist” became increasingly evident in her left eye over time.

She is now almost 80% blind in her left eye while her right eye does the work for both eyes.

Despite being subjected to cruel remarks from online trolls, Elley is happy with her appearance and says she doesn’t want to go down the route of corrective surgery.

Speaking to the star, Elley said: “Having surgery is another scary thing I dread, and it’s not just because of the procedure.

“I accepted that I will always look like this. And I’m fine with looking like this forever. I’ve accepted that I’m happy, I breathe, I walk, I talk, I live – just like any other normal person, it’s irrelevant.”

According to Elley, her way of thinking was heavily inspired by her late grandmother, who taught her that “you’re beautiful even when you’re sick.”

She now sees her difference as an advantage


With that important lesson in mind, Elley says she feels sorry for those who tell her horrible things about her looks.

She continued, “I’m okay with hate because there are people who just don’t understand what it’s like to have a visible insecurity, we all have it, mine just gets on display making them think they have it.” have the benefit to judge.

“But the way I see it is that I have the advantage of being brave with my insecurity/condition and standing out.”

Though she’s sadly faced some rudeness, Elley is also inspired by the many messages of encouragement she receives from parents whose children have the same condition.

Elley said: “I didn’t know it could inspire so many people to be myself, the real me, without hiding it behind my hair! It’s such an achievement!”
