“Body positivity is promoting obesity. You’re glorifying obesity.” Here’s the thing. Existing is not the same thing as encouraging. Existing is not exalting. Loving yourself and practicing body positivity is not an ‘excuse’ or a promotion. It’s a declaration of self acceptance and freedom! It’s escaping the confines of societal expectations, and embracing exactly who YOU are. By embracing your body, you empower yourself and those around you, too. Seeing other people we can relate to creates unity. We come together realizing we are all human. Pushing one body type as ideal (fat, thin, whatever..) is not actual body positivity. I’m not telling anyone else to look like me. I am saying enjoy being YOU.
At any size and shape..
You are valuable
You are worthy
You are enough
You deserve love!
I am not promoting any one body above the rest. I am however promoting self acceptance, individuality, equality, and balance.
Your value is not correlated to your weight.
You don’t have to justify living in your own body.
You are allowed to live unapologetically, stripes, bumps, dimples, scars, crinkles, and all!
