Some thoughts rolling around in my head:
•The other day I woke up to a very mean comment about my body. Not the first and I doubt it will be the last but the thing that really bothered me was that it was from a woman. Who didn’t know me and decided to judge me based solely on my body.
•My first reaction was irritation and a what the fuck kinda feeling. The second reaction was almost like pity. I felt bad for this person who must have felt so triggered for whatever reason that she had to stop and be so unkind to a stranger.
•Triggers. They are everywhere. I think its our own personal responsibility to notice when things trigger us and try to understand why. Ill be honest, there are lots of beautiful humans doing amazing things and sometimes those amazing people trigger something in me that makes me feel less than. Is it that persons fault? Absolutely not. Its mine and its my duty to dive deep and see what the fuck is bothering me, its not my duty to call out that person and shame them because of my own insecurities.
•Unfollow people who don’t make you happy. Its so simple. Save the nasty comments, save your time, save your mental health and un follow.
•Body shaming is fucked up. Hating on other good women is fucked up.•
My body is not goals. I don’t want anyone to look at me and think they need to look like this or be this size to be happy, or do yoga or whatever….
•I have been this size my whole life. I’m 5 foot tall, weigh under 100lbs and have always had a thigh gap. With both pregnancies I gained almost 40lbs. And guess what? Still had a thigh gap. Because this is the way my bones are shaped.
•My psa to women: we have to stick together. Instead of looking down at another female for her body, her sexuality, her photos, her clothes, her whatever…maybe choose to see a women living her life doing what she wants and owning it. We don’t have to agree, we don’t even have to like each other, but we do have to respect each other because if we as women cant do it, how can we expect men too? Or the world too? Female power. We can be even more amazing as one big team.
•Second psa and then I’m done rambling: (Cont. in comments 👇)
