It's easy for YOU to love your body you are thin."👙
In the past couple of weeks, a few people have said this to me.
It's an interesting comment.
Yes, I am thin. In the past, that didn't change the fact that I did not like my body. I was uncomfortable. I was constantly concerned about what I looked like.
I was afraid that food would make me fat. I compared myself to others.
Honestly, my body doesn't look any different now than it did then. I haven't lost a lot of weight. I don't come from big numbers. And yet I still didn't like myself. I still didn't appreciate my body.
I spent a lot of my life feeling bad about my body. I refuse to feel that way now. I refuse to apologize for being thin. I refuse to keep my message of body positivity quiet because I am thin.
If you are struggling with Negative body image, don't let the size of my body keep you from loving yourself. Don't kill the messenger.
Listen to the Body Positive message. ❤️
Don't make excuses about how it's easier for others to love their body and not you. That's not true. We all have our struggles.
There will always be an excuse to not love your body; maybe it's too fat, too thin maybe you have a big nose or your butt is too small. Whatever the excuse, don't let it keep you from searching for body acceptance.
I don't care what body you are living in, you can choose to accept and love yourself. You may not like your body, but you can love it. From that acceptance, loving chooses around food, exercise, and self-talk can occur. Until then, you are just fighting your body. And fighting yourself doesn't work.
