Size and Self-Acceptance Starts with You
What do you know about size acceptance? This is a topic, not only in the plus community, that pretty much wreaks havoc everywhere. Regardless, of how small, big, tall, or short you are-we should learn to love ourselves and others around us.
Starting today, the Lingerie Loves Your Curves-A Size Acceptance Charity Drive is ready to spread the word of size and self-acceptance. It’s a two week “blogathon” event that is based on the much needed philosophy of health at ever size.
Let’s fight back against industries that make money from women’s lack of self-esteem, and share our stories so that we can help empower women everywhere. Let’s celebrate our curves!
You and I both know how the media affects us and how we look at our bodies. Of course, I believe that accepting your body and yourself, starts at very young age. What our youth see portrayed in the media as “beautiful” plays a large part of how they view themselves. I’m no psychologist, but it just makes sense.
Growing up, I was surrounded by healthy curvaceous women, but I was also consumed by those teen magazines. I wanted to look like the girl dating my favorite star. And like a lot of young women, I thought I was fat and not pretty enough. Today, I love my body more than I ever have. Unfortunately, I still have moments when I wish I could lose a few pounds, but then I have to myself why? Is it for health or appearance reasons?
I tell myself that there are no “mistakes” in creation. I’m beautiful inside and out.
Accepting our own bodies and appearance is where it all starts. Once we do that, then the rest will fall into place.
