A real woman in today’s twisted world

Peanut butter doesn’t prejudge, so why should you?

It’s not that people always have the intention to judge, most often it goes unconsciously. We’re (and I’m speaking in WE-form here, since it applies to all of us!) not conscious of the fact that such a simple prejudgement can actually hurt someone. We forget to take into account that we know nothing about that person’s life, nor do we know from how far that person already might have come. Even though that girl you’re always staring at in the gym might be a little bit heavier than the average person, she is still kicking ass and overlapping everyone on the couch. She might even have lost tons of weight already, an achievement that requires more discipline and energy than you probably will ever have. Or what about that girl that just started running? No surprise that she’s sweating like an idiot, her head looks like a tomato and the last minutes she’s hardly moving forward. I’ve been there as well, can perfectly remember the first weeks of running and how hard they were. It’s especially during these times that we can use some support of each other, someone that keeps your back. We all have to start somewhere, and it’s especially the beginning period that requires loads of confidence and discipline to keep going. Keep that in mind, next time you’re about to prejudge someone.

Learn to love yourself

Feeling confident in your own body, regardless its shape, size or looks, that’s what it’s truly about. You don’t need a thigh gap, flat belly or bubble butt for that! The most important thing is to start learning to love yourself. Because if you won’t love your body as it is now, who says you’ll love it with some pounds less? Exactly. You are responsible for your own body. Better treat it with all the love and care you have, since you only have one.

Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about: being happy.

Love the journey.

Love,

Lau

    JUST BEAUTIFUL, it perfectly describes women nowadays. two days agoi walks talkin to my parents about how a wanted to start the gym again and having a balanced diet. the first thing they told me was: do you have a problem with your body? and i was like: NO, not at all but i wanted to lo better, i still want to. youre never gonna satisfy everyone, so just satisfy yourself, it looks like a little bit egocentric but thats the way to stay true to yourself
