theres so many young girls who deal with weight issues. from being too small to too big, someone somewhere will find a fault to dig you out on. I used to take it personally, but I then learnt for someone to call you horrendous names - they must feel pretty insecure about themselves or jealous of your confidence to not care. ok I will never wear a dress, not because of my size - but because dresses aren't me. I don't let my size justify me or limit me to anything. the same goes for men too. I know alot of people don't think it, but men feel the pressures of buff, six-packed up men who his missus or friend lusts over in the street, or on the tv.
celebrities have the same issues too. Demi Lovato, Tyra Banks, Sam Smith, Rihanna and so many more. it's crazy because, social media trys to show us what we should look like, to not only fit in, but to be accepted but the oppersit sex and our peers but social media also shows the affects these obsurd expectations actually have - and sadly, statistics state that a shocking 90% of teens are unhappy with their body. that could be your child, my child, your friends child and so on.. I don't want that. do you? alittle kindness goes a long way, as does respect. no one is made the same way, as cheesey and over used as it is - that is what makes us all different.
I would never restrict myself from eating a slice of cake because a magazine told me that if's completely unacceptable. and I wouldn't not eat a McDonalds because of the calorie contents. but I do eat salad, I have it with mostly all of my meals always have done. but I will never sit and eat a plain old basic salad. do you see the Kardashians sitting with a lettuce leaf and actually enjoying it? - no. what I'm trying to say is, you don't have to try crazy amounts of diets to have the body you so desperately feel you 'need'. the body you have someone else would love to have, it's like when people say - ''oh you should be greatful you have children, theres others who would love to be but can't''. it's exactly the same as that. everyone has a flaw. some learn to hide it more than others. and some just don't care.
I've become the latter of the two. I've found myself recently being body shamed online. by people that don't know me, but have heard some major lies about me. it's fine, and I don't ever want 'aww it's unfair on you' - because it's petty and I'm a grown ass woman who can deal with more than immature teens who can't handle their own fate with karma.
I think we all need to have alittle more understanding to vulnerablities. body image and body shaming aren't acceptable. we're more than just a size of our clothing, or the number on the scales. I'm going to link afew sites below to help if you are suffering from any kind of body image issues or even if you wanna learn more. trust me, knowledge is the key - ignorance isn't bliss.
