The fashion scene is filled with tiny girls and girls who want to be tiny. There’s only a small section of women who are different sizes, that aren’t ideally thin or curvy. I don’t have anything against those girls who do fit in those types but women come in all different proportions, weights, and sizes and sometimes fashion makes it really difficult to love and appreciate our own bodies because we don’t all fit in.
I’m very short and I’m not that curvy. I’ve got broad shoulders, tiny hips, and thick thighs regarding “ideal proportions”. There’s all sorts of other things but what I’m getting at is I’m pretty odd looking for the fashion world and it does become mightily discouraging wearing the clothes I want to wear because I have this voice inside my head saying I don’t look right. A voice telling me, why even try.
Well, fuck what that voice says because I’m going to have fun wearing whatever I want. My body isn’t going to conform to any rules or opinions that will keep me from enjoying myself in MY life. And I want to encourage others to do the same and to not be so scared to try on those clothes you wish you could pull off. Just put them on! THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR BODY. Don’t let anyone tell you there’s something wrong with your body so you can’t wear this or that. Let yourself be happy, engulf yourself in your interests, and see where it gets you.
Yeah, there’s going to be a few jackasses that will love to shower you in negative comments, but let them be bitter. Whatever got them to be like that in their life doesn’t have anything to do with you. That’s their problem, not your problem. You’re miles ahead if you can see beauty in others and learn to see beauty in yourself.
Live your life how you want, not how someone else wants.
This has been on my mind lately. Really, learn to accept your body and it’s proportions. We might not see them on TV or in magazines, but they’re real bodies that deserve the same celebrity treatment. Wear what you want, take pictures of yourself, and feel beautiful. Don’t let others shun you for loving yourself.
