I am absolutely sick to death of seeing people body shame others all over social media. It angers me so much that what others look like can upset certain people to the point that they either have to write about it on social media or they just sit there chatting shit about this random ‘fat’ woman they work with. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
Since the weather has become somewhat warm and sunny in good old Wales, all I’ve seen is people making it their duty to tell everyone that ‘they should dress for their body and not for the weather’ – are you kidding me?! its 30 bloody degrees, walk around naked for all I care. As long as you feel cool and are happy in what you’re wearing then why should some idiot stop you from wearing a certain pair of shorts or a bloody dress.
And while I’m talking about it (or should I say ranting) why do you body shaming idiots think its ok to make someone feel uncomfortable in their own skin? So what if they weigh more than you do, you are in no way superior to them, in fact, you’re so below them that they shouldn’t even worry about the shit you spout from that horrible mouth of yours!
Since having my daughter all I have heard is about my weight. For some reason people assume because I’ve had a baby that everyone can comment on my weight and how I look. So what that my daughter is nearly two and I am still not down to the size I was before I was pregnant, so what that I have been on about 10 diets and failed every time since having her – how does any of that affect your life?
“You’re on a diet again? try and stick to it this time.”
“Well I’ll be able to do that if that fat woman can.”
“I’m off to fat club tonight – should be a laugh.”
“You shouldn’t be eating that if you want to get thin.”
I hear and see these comments everyday but it still doesn’t make it right! Stop body shaming others you wankers and concentrate on your own little life. I am still not in the size I was before having Hattie and that’s okay because you know what? I may have rolls, a flabby stomach, my legs may jiggle when I walk and my legs may be covered in stretch marks but my body did something amazing. It made my perfect little girl, it went through nine months of stretching and then so many agonising hours of labour and it gave me my best friend, my baby! So the time when I should be in love with my body, I’m not. I am so disconnected to it because of all those stupid comments. I should be loving all my rolls and jiggly bits but I am not, I am instead trying to cover them up and hide them. From now on though, fuck it! I may not have the perfect body but what I do have is the perfect daughter and my body created her and made her the perfect little girl she is today!
Everyone should love themselves enough to not need to put others down – if we all took some time to look at ourselves in the mirror, we’d all find something we hate and wouldn’t want pointing out so don’t do it to other people! There’s enough hate in the world, so don’t add anymore to it.
