Dear friend and current lover,
I can’t put this off any longer…
It’s time we say our goodbyes.
I’ll never forget the fun we’ve had together,
I’m grateful for that as well as your warmth and comfort.
And i’ll cherish how easily you went down,
You were never one to come back up.
This is hard, but to be honest…
You’re just not enough for me anymore,
And you always run out so quickly.
I think it’s time I tell you,
I’m pursing 12 pack.
Your estranged lover,
So it’s not ok to be ok with being fat or overweight, because it sets the wrong example? Because by being fat or overweight it automatically means you’re unhealthy or lazy? Excuse the Fuck out of me but for one goddamn time id like to see the over idolized skinny celebrities be berated for being unhealthy or lazy. Im talking about the ones who rather not eat to stay a size 0 or have surgery then actually exercise. Is that healthy? No but it’s fucking hot broooo, right? Let’s get personal, I eat healthy 90% of the time, I ride my bike miles and miles every week, and I run but guess what… I am not skinny, I never have been and I probably never will be. I have thick thighs, big arms, big breasts and a round ass, I have dimples when I smile and love handles. So I am self consious and I can be self loathing. I know I’m beautiful though so why do I hate my appearance sometimes? Because I never had a role model who was bigger, no one has ever said it’s ok to be chubby, to have thick thighs a round ass and dimples when you smile. Because my looks don’t fit in. I look different, and i’ve been brain washed to believe that it’s not ok. Because the only people who ever tried to say big is beautiful were ridiculed for not being healthy enough and more often than not ended up with an eating disorder. Loving yourself when everyone says it’s wrong is HARD. I don’t spend hours in the gym pumping iron but that doesn’t mean all skinny people do. Sure id probably get better results if I slaved away at vanity. I don’t, and I’m ok with that, I’m ok with being who I am, and having the body I do and im healthy enough. It’s ok to be whoever you are or want to be.
This is a rant, because I’m tired of the unrealistic standards people try to enforce.
