Your Body Positive Mantra for Tank Tops + Short Shorts Season
I know, as a fat gal, warmer weather can be intimidating. If you’re someone who isn’t comfortable with your body, wearing shorts, tank tops, or short sleeve shirts in public isn’t something you enjoy doing. You constantly feel like everyone is staring at you and judging your body. It makes you feel like every single person walking past you is staring at every single flaw you have. Every. Single. One.
Trust me, girl. I know how you feel. I used to be the same exact way.
If you’re struggling with your body image, here’s a little something you need to remember:
Repeat after me:
Fat people should be able look in the mirror without feeling like the world thinks they’re ugly. They should be able to look in the mirror and love their bodies, without other people encouraging them to do the opposite.
Fat people should be able to see themselves as the main character, not a sidekick at best, or a slobbish pig at worst. They deserve to feel like they’re important, even on the days where they’re not so totally in love with their bodies.
Fat people should be able to speak about themselves positively without some random person saying “Um, stop promoting obesity it’s unhealthy.” Fat people should be able to get treatment for medical problems without doctors immediately assuming the weight is the problem. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Fat people should be able to find nice, inexpensive clothes as easily as any skinny person.
No matter what your weight is, you deserve love. You deserve to be completely, 100% in love with your body. No matter what your weight is, you deserve to be treated like a human being. Baby girl, even if you’re going into this Spring not completely loving your body, keep working for self love just as you are working for that diploma 💪🏻 You’ll get there one day, just like I did💋 XOXO
