Growing up I was always made to feel like a certain body size was 'normal' and that another one was undesirable and a laughing point. Not only is this a disgusting and disgraceful way to think, but it ended up poisoning and damaging my mind. I soon realised that size is a number which doesn't mean a thing. I realised everybody is COMPLETELY different and that our differences should be celebrated, because it is what makes us who we are.
There is no 'Good', 'Bad', 'Normal', 'Skinny' or 'Fat'.
When I look at someone, I don't see a size; I see a Human Being who has lived a life full of experiences, difficulties, tragedies and battles that I may never know. We can not see the battles and struggles a person has faced through the outside; these battles are not represented through the gap between our thighs or the size of our arms, because size is insignificant.
The outside of a person can not tell you a thing about them, so why do we still judge people by the way they look when everything is underneath?
A Human Body, whilst it is an incredible machine, is just a body.
A Human Being is so much more.
You don't know how much impact the words Fat and Skinny can have on a person.
It could push them over the edge and send them spiralling into an inescapable abyss of self-loathing and never ending self deprecation, which can last a life time. A whole life time of hating yourself is a long and unpleasant one. YOU have the choice, in one small, tiny instant, as to whether you want to fill a persons life with love and beauty or fill it with everlasting self hatred.
Life is too short to not love yourself.
Do not strive to look like someone else, because someone else is not you.
YOU and every other human being on this planet was born perfect.
10 fingers and 10 toes - ya good to go.
Words are a powerful thing; use them kindly.
Eat what you like, be how you like, and live happily.
