I’m feeling particularly fiery this fine afternoon…I thought I would jot down some things that I hold near and dear, and things I feel everyone should realize/consider/practice.
Please realize that body-shaming is a multi-billion dollar industry.
Please consider the sources of “studies” and news stories- Realize that the news you read is sometimes paid for by companies that want you to buy their products. Fat-hate and fear sell products very, very well.
Realize your body is no ones business but your own. Do not allow others to police YOUR body.
Instead of focusing on people’s “unhealthy” bodies- why are we not shaming greed, homophobia,sexism,hate?
Fat and other “non-normative” bodies are currently public property to discuss and dissect and shame. Take your body BACK!!!!!
Take healthy steps if they work for YOU, not because someone shames you into them.
Loving & accepting your body is a revolutionary thing. Please realize that at the end of the day- you are the only one in your head, the only person you have to answer to. Live by your own standards, and not for anyone else.
So many amazing thoughts and messages here.
