On EDs, body image and confidence

Posted on

It’s okay to want to lose weight, and eat “healthy” and exercise. It’s okay to want to look your best. But if you think that being skinny will solve all your problems, that it will make you feel loved and beautiful and popular, then I got news for you- your weight or body shape is not the problem, your lack of self- worth, respect and esteem is. You don’t need a flawless body when you’ve got confidence. Learn to appreciate yourself, both your body and mind, and you will own the world. Society’s sick standards will have nothing on you. Truth be told, you are fierce and once you’ve realized that, once you’ve started holding your head up high and mesmerizing the people around you with your charm, confidence and contagious smile, ain’t nobody is gonna give a shit if you have stretch marks or thick thighs or a big stomach or no abs or whatever. And if someone should comment on any of that, you can always flip them the finger and know that you are good enough for you, and that is all that matters. 

Stop being so hard on yourself, and start being hard on all the things and people who make you feel like shit.
