AM I SUPPOSED TO HATE MY BODY?
You, my good lady, made me cry with the ending. I have never seen something as rational and yet, personal, as this. It really made me think, pause, and analyze my own self-loathing and you’re so right. I’m wasting my precious time and I’ve damaged myself.
Why doesn’t this have more views? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about different things pertaining to myself, and one minute I’m okay with me and the next, I hate certain or all aspects of myself. In the shower this morning, I was thinking about my flabby arms and thunder thighs and I was like “Well, at least my stomach is kinda thin.” Then I thought, why do we have to pick bits and pieces of ourselves that we like in order to feel better about ourselves? Instead of shaming those certain features, why can’t we just love ourselves as a
whole? If we know we’ll never be perfect, then why do we critique ourselves and each other for not being perfect? It makes no sense. And this girl right here in this video is absolutely right. Why hate your body? What’s the point? If you have a problem with your weight, shape, or appearance, then maybe it’s not your body that you need to change, but instead, you need to change your way of thought/your self-concept. You are beautiful/handsome just the way you are. If you’re gonna change, change because you want to better yourself, not because of society’s crappy concept of beauty. You don’t need to starve yourself or workout, you just need to be happy. That’s all that matters.
