I've talked on my blog and Instagram often about my body, the way I feel judged and how I never seem to be comfortable in my own skin. The media and social media has a big part to play in this and just today the latest body shaming story has sprung.
Lady Gaga dared to bare her skin and she had, wait for it, fat rolls!! Well not really fat rolls, her body was simply oh natural.News must be slow if this all they've got to report on and the fact is rolls of fat or not the woman looks frigging hot!
It is articles like this that really get my back up. How are we meant to feel happy with how we look if people constantly feel the need to criticise. Slagging off other peoples bodies seems to have become perfectly acceptable in this day and age and I for one would love to know why?
What the hell is wrong with fat rolls anyway?
I think the majority of the population has fat rolls whether they care to admit it or not especially when sitting down, I know I do and it certainly doesn't make them any less of a person it just means that they aren't flawless.
I won't be calling Lady Gaga out for not having a flat stomach, I'm applauding her for being a good role model for all girls and women out there, we don't need to be stick thin to love our bodies she like other celebrities such as Amy Schumer are showing that the way you look does not have an affect on how successful you can be.
As actress Kenzie Brenna said recently on her Instagram page, we should all embrace the squish. Every single 'imperfection' shouldn't be seen as that at all. Stretch marks, cellulite, rolls of fat, shouldn't be seen as a negative thing, they are just part of what make our bodies unique!
This is apart of me I'm not changing. 🚫 Not only do I not have the finances to chance this part of my body, I don't have the emotionality to change it. To actually undergo the surgery I've researched and phoned in about so many times, I can't do it. ❌ I don't blame others for going through it, it's just not something that I can do. I honestly don't even hate this part of me anymore, through #embracethesquish I have found more and more women who help me accept this part of myself. 🌸 There's nothinggggg to be ashamed of. A body part that doesn't look like the body parts you've seen PLASTERED in the media, doesn't make it wrong. Yes it'll feel wrong to embrace. Yes it's counterintuitive to love yourself as is. Yes there will be moments where you're not fucking good at accepting yourself. And you'll truck through all of them, just like you have with the last x amount of years of yourself. When I get messages from my friends, people from my city, women from other countries, on different continents, within different cultures that tell me I help them love themselves a bit better, I end up loving myself a bit more in the process. GOOD ATTRACTS GOOD. If what you're doing right now DOESNT feel good, STOP. Start doing something that might be a little scary (but may be a little fun) and try something new. Chasing yourself in circles fuelled by dislike, hate, negativity will NOT equal out to a positive, well balanced, harmonious, loving, soothing, body, mind or soul. If could all just embrace the squish a little more maybe we wouldn't be as rigid to ourselves and to others. #selflovebootcamp #selfloveisthebestlove #beyourownhero #beautybeyondsize 💞💞💞💞💞
Lets hear it for our bodies flaws, let our rolls of fat keep rolling rolling rolling, don't be afraid to be you and never be ashamed or feel afraid to stand out from the crowd because every part of you is wonderful and you should never let anyone make you feel anything other than beautiful!
