I’m a newspaper reader!! This morning was no exception, and as I was looking for some inspiration, I stumble upon this article of a dancer that left aside any body issues to start dancing again. It began as a set of YouTube videos named A Fat Girl Dancing, but now it is a movement. The No Body Shame wants people to love their body as it is, and “promotes the idea of self-love and acceptance as a step towards wellness”. This is WhitneyShe’s the creator of the movement, and the “fat girl dancing”. I believe that her movement is so important in today’s society. We are constantly body shaming people because they don’t fit the “ideal” beauty. However, I wonder, what is the ideal beauty? What is the perfect body? Why do society wants us to be the Victorias Secret type?
This body shaming over women develops in so many problems. Depression and eating disorders, I believe, are the worst two. With a constant pressure to look a certain way, people is willing to try everything. That’s why there are so many weight loss products out there.
I think that is time to say screw body shame. All of us are unique and beautiful they way we are. Society is not going to be pleased, like, never. They will always say “ohh too skinny”, “too fat”, “too curvy”, “too plain”, “too white”, “too black”, “too yellow” (ok not colors), but you get the point. We will never be perfect for society.
Remember that the ideal beauty depends on the eye of the beholder. What’s beautiful for me, isn’t necessarily for you. Most important, remember that your body can do so many wonderful things.
Your body allows you to walk, to work, and to live. That’s why: live your life the way you want it to, screw body shame, dance if you want to, run if that’s what you like, hit the gym in the weights area, wear the short dress, use flats if you feel like it. Your body can’t tell your worth!!
Have a beautiful day dearies!
