Body Shaming | I’m Talking To You

Do. Not. Let. Your. Mind. Bully. Your. Body.

I know people say this all the time. I also know this can be tough to do. Trust me though, you don’t need thinner legs or softer skin. What really is needed is a change in perspective and higher self-esteem.

Compliments are something I try to give out a lot. I tell people how nice they look and compliment outfits all the time. I enjoy telling someone that their makeup looks amazing. I love making other people feel good about themselves.

However, complements can be harder to receive and a lot of us brush them off.  "Your hair looks so good" often comes with the reply of "my hair is greasy, I need to wash it". When it comes to someone complementing our bodies, everyone is feeling bloated.

Somewhere, along the line, we forgot how beautiful we all really are. Just because you think someone else is beautiful, doesn't mean that you aren't beautiful! We live in a world that is obsessed with numbers and sizes. We should all be measuring ourselves in how kind, funny and unique we are.

Beauty isn't a size or a weight. People need to stop telling thin people to eat more. People also have to not assume someone is overweight because they don't exercise or eat healthily. Embrace what you have, be kind to your mind and most of all love to your body.
