Why is body shaming so common?
How many of you can relate to this?
I used to be a skinny girl during my college years.
And i normally hear rude comments such as;
"You need to get an x-ray asap"
"Don't you eat anything nutritious at home?"
Even a clinical instructor once said,
"You need to eat more because they might mistoke you as the patient not as a nurse".
And the list goes on and on..
Few years later i gave birth to my first born.
During pregnancy, I gained a few extra pounds.
Which is normal by the way. 😁
Same scenario happened when i met this old colleague of mine.
"Bes ang taba mo na!" ("Friend, you've gotten bigger!")
Just wondering, since when did "tumaba ka" become society's new version of HELLO.
And why is it that when people are upset, annoyed, or irritated by someone.
The automatic response is, we criticize other people's appearance.
Well our society have a very narrow standard of beauty.
Our culture has this PRO-Thin, ANTI-Fat ideals.
But it doesn't mean that it's socially acceptable.
That it's okay to say inappropriate things.
Without knowing the story behind every persons choices.
Let us not be influence by what the society dictates through social media, movies, magazines, and advertisements.
By telling us what's the cultural norms, what is superior and what is praiseworthy.
How you view yourself is the most important belief of all.
I believe, everyone is beautiful in their own skin and size.
And whatever it is that makes you happy, do it. ※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—※—⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
