Hey blog fam,
After i read a post on Loving Your Body Unapologetically (Click to read her post) by Thonia banks, i knew i had to share my own piece of the same story.
I have never really liked myself, don’t get me wrong. I really like me, all my weirdness and awesomeness, i totally can’t get enough of me😂.
But loving my body/physique has been something I have struggled with for a very long time mainly cause I have been in too many situations where a slimmer person was preferred more than me, and all these just built up some sort of self hatred within me, though i agree I can be in denial of this facts sometimes.
Recently it got worse when someone saw me for the first time and she went on and on about how fat I am and was indirectly insinuating that i was photoshoping my pictures and making myself look smaller on social media probably to deceive people.
P.S- This and more is part of the numerous reasons I don’t look forward to meeting new and some old(familiar) people. Cause I can’t start explaining how I don’t even know how to use the Photoshop app and why I look smaller in pictures😔.
As if that was not enough, one time i walked into a supermarket down my street to get something to eat, then the sales guy looks at me and says” You shouldn’t be eating these things”.
PSS- I find it really rude and annoying when people do this. 😔 It’s not cool..
It’s just really difficult loving yourself when people around you won’t just let you be great in peace, but I have made up my mind to consciously love myself and that also includes watching and controlling the things that enters my mouth. I will lose my own desired amount of weight at my own TIME and SPACE.😑.
It’s easier said than done but I’ll enjoy the process and wear my insecurities with pride, like I did in this picture I took few days ago 😂 showing my “Christian Mother Arms” according to Thonia banks.
All I’m saying is “We all need to be a lot more nicer and sensitive in everything we do and say”
And this doesn’t only apply to plus size people, some slim people go through this too. Regardless of the size, color we should learn to love and accept people for who they are
Cheers to a life of true love and good health 🍻.
Thank you for reading.
