My body shape has become the subject of ridicule by many people, I never thought that something like this could happen…
Below, read what this looks like from another angle!
From a young age, I realized that I was different. I’m fat. In elementary school, I wore only leggings, because I could not wear skirts, dresses, and jeans, as well as other girls. It all hurt me a lot, I wanted to be like other children…
Growing up, I was told that I would have to take a lot of care of my weight so that I could find a boyfriend, or I probably wouldn’t even get married. Not to mention teasing my peers. How do you think those words affected a teenage girl?
This led me to develop a terrible relationship with my body and food in my youth and I never understood why?
Not to mention that no one took me seriously when I tried to seek help – I was told I really had no problem.
Toxic culture of diet and yo-yo diet to starvation before an hour of intense cardio training led me to this. To fight with myself and all mental obstacles. And for what? To please someone?
I mention these things because they happened to me. These are my experiences and that is why no one will be able to undermine them. During the Kovid-19 pandemic, I took a lot of time to think about myself and listen to myself. What I learned is that everything is fine with me. As for health, I could lose weight and I would probably feel better.
However, because of the shape of my body, and to lose weight, I would again consider myself “big” or “rounded”, and that’s okay. Plus size is not an insult, and thinness is not a compliment. Weight gain is not an insult, and weight loss is not a compliment.
My body is not your ground for war. You have no right to tell me what my body should look like. I am satisfied with what my body can and is capable of.
If you are skinny, you have privileges that fat people do not have. You can have a boyfriend (or girlfriend), you can get the lead role in a musical, and you are treated differently – and better – than someone who is fat. The stigma surrounding the weight that exists in this world has been created by none other than our society.
It’s time to really stop and think about who really allowed the stigma to happen. Of course, the media and the fashion industry encouraged this ideal, but society is the one that took over this idea and ran after it. And we can do better.
That’s how I turned things around. I became a model for clothes intended for fuller ladies! And I really enjoy it. I am slowly managing to get rid of all the constraints that have developed in my head over the years … We are not all the same, that is the charm, but that is why we should accept everyone exactly as he is, without ridicule and mockery.
It is not okay to judge and hurt someone, because that is not your definition of beauty.
We have a long way to go before we live in a society that fully accepts each other, but let 2022 be a new beginning! Let’s start today!
