Don't build yourself up, by putting someone else down (Vlog)



This has been bothering me for a little while.

We all see the pictures posted or shared on social media with quotes like "Real men like curves, only dogs like bones", the whole Victoria's Secret vs Dove Campaign or larger people being compared to things like whales or featured on People of Walmart.

When has this become acceptable?  This is body shaming.  This is tearing another person down to only build yourself up.

No matter a person's size or looks, we need to promote loving yourself and being the best person you can be.

When is body shaming ok?  It's not. In order for us to grow mentally in a positive direction, we need to put an effort in stopping this.  Body shaming another person only to make you feel better only shows your insecurities.  Find peace within yourselves.

I am not into "fat acceptance" or "thinspo".....I am into "loving yourself".  If you love yourself and happy where you are then great.  If you love yourself and want to change then great.

What if we would build each other up and ourselves & not tear each other apart in order to do it?  How do you think this would change the world?

Be the change.
