Body positivity is such a huge combination of different ingriedients – sugar , spice and everything nice ! – ( a powerpuff girls reference for You right there ) . But in all seriousness , body positivity means different things for different people – and that is the exciting part !
For me it’s simply loving Your body and accepting Your flaws . It’s a lifestyle . It’s knowing and acknowledging that Your body doesn’t need to fit any standarts set by others . You set Your own standarts ! Everybody is a different type of beautiful .
Body positivity is beautiful . And beautiful is healthy . Not necessarily healthy as in weighing below a certain number or eating super healthy meals . Healthy as in – as long as You feel good in Your own body .
Body positivity is not promoting obeasity . It’s not promoting loosing weight either . It’s promoting to be Yourself . Promoting to love Yourself for being able to be Yourself and feel good about it . It’s not just a ” thing ” for ” curvy ” people .
If You haven’t noticed yet – body positivity is also available in the men edition ! Women may be more vocal about it , but it doesn’t mean that guys don’t struggle with this issue .
It is not just about the human appearance . It’s a mind set . A mind set that I believe could change the world to be a better place . If we just accepted each other for who we are … if we could avoid the hate , the nasty comments , the ” go loose some weight ” , the ” go eat a burger ” , the abuse … I would love to experience a world free of body shamers . But while some people are too busy spreading the negativity – let’s spend our time more wisely and spread the word of body positivity instead 🙂 !
Do what You want with Your body ! Nobody should judge the things You decide to do with it . Getting a tattoo , a piercing , even plastic surgery – if that is what it takes to make You feel great – go ahead ! People are free to have their own opinions , everybody feels different about what is considered beautiful and what is not . Do not let that discourage You ! It is always going to be about preferences , and if that is what You prefare – do not let anybody hold You back .
I could talk about this topic for days , but these were the few things that I feel strongly about regardings the body positivity topic . There is just one more thing I would like to say – be happy 🙂 ! And Love Your body in every state 🙂 !
