She Apoligized for What?!

❌I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR THE SIZE OF MY BODY & NEITHER SHOULD YOU!❌

I read a post from someone apologizing for the privilege of having a body their size

She apologized to people & recognized her privilege in living in a body of her size & shape because it gives her the privilege to eat big meals in front of people without being glared at...I’m sorry but WHAT?!😤

Doesn’t this further perpetuate the problem that she is trying to solve?🤨

If you want to STOP body shaming, then apologizing for the body YOU live in, is in a sense shaming yourself to avoid hurting others...thus suggesting they have something ‘worse’ than you!🚧

🤦🏻‍♀️I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS🤦🏻‍♀️

This is just ONE (I have many) of the reasons why the body positive movement has become so twisted
This movement has the power to be more empowering & yet every day I see it leading to justifications of poor habits, abusive treatment of ones own soul home, & stigmas/labels around if our own body is ‘right, wrong, better, worse, privileged, or underprivileged.’😔

YOUR BODY IS YOUR VEHICLE TO HAVING THE MOST EPIC HUMAN EXPERIENCE💥🌟

What we need to do is remove the JUDGEMENT & enhance the LOVE!⬆️❤️

Find a lifestyle that YOU enjoy & which helps you find, maintain, & celebrate your health!🤗

🎉Celebrate your choices & take pride in them! I’m personally so proud of myself & how far I’ve come in my body, relationship w/ food, as well as my physical abilities & mental clarity!

Why would I apologize for the work I put in DAY AFTER DAY?! Hell no🙅🏻‍♀️

Treat your body with love, no matter what size or shape you are, not just to achieve a shape, but simply to PROVIDE NECESSARY NUTRIENTS & ENERGY to the ONE place your soul resides in🍃🍉🍫🏋🏻‍♀️

Speak about YOUR body & others from a loving, caring, & genuine space. If you have nothing to add, ZIP IT!🙊

You’re not a bad person for having your body look any which way, just like you’re not a good person for this. At some point your body won’t even exist! BUT, given that it IS your vehicle for THIS life, SHOULDN’T WE VALUE IT MORE!?💃🏻

Body positivity begins with treating your body positively
