It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, truth be told I needed to rant again. I forgot how much I loved just being up and personal on the blog.
There’s something that’s been nagging me a lot recently, mainly to do with Instagram. Yes, I do post there quite often and I use it as a tool for my blog. Something that I’ve noticed (with people I know) is that Instagram has caused a lot of insecurity. The other day I was in a conversation where we were taking about our bodies and how we can never be satisfied with them.
I’m tired. I’m tired of thinking about my body. I’m tired of society telling me what’s beautiful and what’s not beautiful. Tired of seeing us women go through so much shit trying to keep up with society’s beauty standards. I’m just so fucking tired man.
So what if I’m not skinny? So what if I have cellulite? So what if I don’t have a body like a Victoria’s Secret body? There’s so much more to life than our bodies. I’m just so tired that idgaf anymore.
I hate that we are conditioned to think about our bodies all the time. I’m tired of thinking “I wish I had that body” or “I shouldn’t eat that, I should wait for the weekend.” Fuck that shit. Life’s too short to think about how many calories you eat in a day.
I can tell you it makes me so mad that us women are made to think this way. We should be thinking about our education, our careers, not about the fact that our butt isn’t “big enough”.
Yeah I’m not skinny. Yeah I work out, but I eat whatever I want too, it’s called balance. I can’t say I’m 100% about self love but I’m halfway there.
When you die, are you gonna remember the time you were starving yourself for someone else or the time where you just lived your life and achieved your goals?
