Have you ever met someone who is SO not body positive?
Body shame is rife in so many areas of our online and in real life lives. We're constantly bombarded with messages that healthy only comes in one shape and size (and it's usually small, photoshopped, glowing and has no pores) Because those messages are so prevalent, it's easier to toe the body shame line than it is to opt out and embrace the concept that healthy isn't a size and that all bodies can be good bodies.
So how do you deal with those people who insist that YOUR body isn't okay, or that there's only a narrow scope in which to be healthy? I'm not for a second going to suggest that it's easy, or even simple.
- use the power of your ignore, block, and delete buttons
- surround yourself with people who build you up
- Remember, you're enough, and deserve to celebrate your individuality.
