“Mother Teresa didn’t walk around
complaining about her thighs-
she had shit to do!”
First and foremost: don’t have an opinion on my body. Second, I have heard so many people obsess over their bodies and while we do, there are people who are trying to better their own lives and those around them. Focus on what is important, life is too short to worry if you did not burn enough calories that day. I don’t want to sound like a motivational speaker or Pinterest quote but loving yourself makes a whole lotta difference.
Confidence is the single most endearing quality a person can hold. Confidence in themselves, confidence their bodies and personalities. It all stems from the people you surround yourself with. I choose to befriend those who believe in themselves. They take pride in their bodies, they don’t talk about why they are gaining weight, we try to talk about other things. The pressures of society consume us every day, it is nice to be around people who like you for you, not what you weight.
Life should be more then your gym schedule. Don’t let your weight, cup size or even your height define what makes you, you! Love your body, all of its bumps, lines and curves, they tell your story. Don’t grab your thigh and feel uncomfortable. Embrace who you are because everyone has parts of them they wish they could change, it’s just those who don’t call them flaws that are prettier.
There are some people in this world I could never consider a friend. It isn’t because they don’t look like Gisele Bundchen. It is because they are painfully ugly on the inside. They are mean, rude and inconsiderate. Again let me repeat myself, it isn’t because they aren’t a size 2, with a perfectly symmetrical face and hair that could be on a Pantene bottle, it all came down to that they couldn’t bring light and happiness into my life.
And shame on you if think you can comment on someone else! Be your own person, love yourself, don’t concern yourself with other peoples body parts. If someone is happy and healthy, then whoever is putting you down, isn’t. Please, don’t ever let anyone take that away. Never let people make you feel that you are inadequate.
Don’t have a shallow soul who ridicules others over unobtainable standards of beauty. Too skinny is the same as too fat, they both hurt. Instead, be strong, be confident, be happy. Don’t compare. We have different genes that will never make us the same, and thank god for that! I don’t want to be anyone but myself. I am Ellen, I am beautiful like me, not like you.
