Look. Look. Are you looking?
I just needed to tell you that you are fucking beautiful. Okay?
No, no arguing. Beautiful. Fucking retardedly beautiful & I won't hear a word against it- ok?
Good, I'm glad that's settled.
Let's talk about your body image real quick. My body image real quick.
(warning: Real Talk)
Today I had to remind myself that just because I don't like my body doesn't mean I don't like myself.
And then I had to tell myself that I needed to quit telling myself that I don't like my body. Because when I tell myself I don't like my body then I subconsciously tell myself that I don't like myself and then it's a vicious cycle that continues forever & that's just no way to live!
My thighs are part of my legs. My legs help me do all the things I love (awkwardly, but I don't think that's their fault) like running & zumba & yoga & prancersising (hasn't gotten old yet) & so for that - I need to quit criticizing.
Seriously, if for nothing else- visit this site for the Photoshop Phonies section. It's... it's just really amazing that we- even on a totally subconscious level sometimes- are beating ourselves up for not looking like the people in the magazines who in real life look like normal people! PEOPLE! C'mon
But seriously. The whole site is just one big, compiled source of "you're okay. You're fucking beautiful". I believe the site's creators even have billboards of the above (very top) throughout the state of Utah. It's very much against body shaming (of all types because that can often effect the naturally very thin too) & how media is profiting out of screwing with our minds.
I found this particular quote really thought provoking
" This sinister lie that female worth is dependent upon appearance is incredibly successful,"
So, what they're at is that there are many outlets profiting from us stuck in the rut of "don't like my body, don't like myself" because then we go out & buy oh, I don't fucking know... shakeweights?
Of course, take care of yourself. Make healthy choices.
Or not! What the hell do I know.
Except you are beautiful. I'm gonna end this with a real quick look at some photoshop of horror material!
