First: This dress gives my butt some shape! Hallelujah!
Second: I have been reading a lot this afternoon on the body positive movement. Thinking what makes my account so special. Why do I deserve to be in this conversation?
I deserve to be here darn it. I have suffered through the torment of bullies, strangers, people close to me and my own self discussing my body, mulling its worth over and over. Was it my body’s health that we were actually so concerned with? OR, was it because my body never fit the mold.
Imagine being in Kindergarten and knowing what fat was and classifying yourself in that category. Realizing you are an outsider. Imagine being a girl and already having your body picked apart because you are a woman and society values women’s worth by their bodies.
This account is more than just posting for me. It’s about exposing myself to women like me. Growing up there weren’t many bodies like mine. It’s knowing that I’m not alone and sharing myself to let another woman know she’s not alone. It’s about seeing other women with bodies I yearned for and realizing that they too have body image issues. It’s about talking about mental health and eating disorders that manifested from our traumas.
#selflove and #bodypositivity are conversations that are being had by so many of us right now. So you would think one more account would be overkill…WRONG!
One more account adds exposure. It reaches out to more women and men and people. One more account displays another body and its diversity. One more account shows you bodies have rolls and dimples and scars. One more account breaks down the prejuidices of society with exposure. So I will continue my account until it no longer serves a purpose (helloooooo to infinity and beyond!). I will continue knowing my worth and my account’s worth. It’s little and it’s mine and it brings a whole community of plus size women together fighting for #femaleempowerment and #bodyempowerment
Go make some noise ladies and gents! Break the norms!
