A few of my friends on Facebook shared this video today, and I absolutely LOVE it. #feelinginspired
It's so easy to call ourselves fat and other unkind things. I'm guilty of it, we are all guilty of it, and if you aren't guilty of this, teach me to be like you. In a world where we are constantly bombarded by pictures/videos/commercials ect. of "perfection", it's almost impossible to stay away from "fat talk" as they call it in the video. The pictures of touched up models that show us from a young age what we are "supposed to look like" are harmful. It gives an unrealistic idea of how we should look, and striving to look like those pictures will only set us up for failure. Because guess what? Not even the people in those pictures really look like that.
As the year comes to a close, I'm beginning to think of some resolutions for the new year. A big one on my list is to get away from "fat talk", and putting myself down. Imagine looking at your best friend or sister and saying "Wow. You look like a cow." While most of us would never say something like that to a friend, (I hope no one really would say that to a friend haha) we EASILY say things like this to ourselves all. the. time. So here's a rule we should all implant into our brains: if you wouldn't say it to your best friend, or sister or someone you love and respect, you should NEVER say it to yourself. No more fat talk.
