Why Body Positivity shouldn’t be your main focus

I love body neutrality more than body positivity and let me tell you WHY. With body positivity we are taught to love how our bodies look! For me it was hard to find the balance. I struggled and beat myself up over not being able to fully love my body on bad days and then feeling bad at being “body positive”. I felt the pressure of advocating body positivity one day and then not loving my body so much on other days, as if I was being an imposter.

BUT MAYBE that’s where I did it all wrong in the first place. Maybe it shouldn’t be about body positivity and my body’s appearances and being okay with just that. With body neutrality I’m learning to love my body WAY BEYOND its looks! I’m loving it for the strength it has, for being a miracle every single day. I am praising it for being able to find rest when I had a stressful day, for taking me places, for being able to remember birthdays and digest my meals! I’m so PROUD of what my body can do!

With learning and appreciating all that, it seems that I have finally found peace with my body being the magical vessel that it is, doing it’s wonderful things that it does every single day. Finding joy in eating AND in sports, in fries AND in water, finding balances in work and play, in effort and rest.

Yea.. I think I love body neutrality 💜 and I definitely learned to love my body a lot more as well 🥰

It's totally understandable why you believe that your body is imperfect, unworthy of love, flawed, that you show up being "brave" to show your body instead of just beautifully you. It's social media misleading us and its unrealistic expectations it has built up towards your body.

My life just fell apart: the supermarket visit 15min after getting diagnosed with a tumor

Somehow I broke my baguette and I bought some pizza because I just knew I wouldn’t be cooking meals that evening and the radio was playing songs about dying. I was overthinking my entire existence, my meaning in life.

I was scared to bring bad news

I was scared to bring bad news, because every time it happened before, people left me. I was good company for as long as I held my smiles up and I was of use to others, and even up until this day, I’m saying I’m fine to avoid someone else to feel uncomfortable.

We need a society where rape victims are protected more!

I recently have listened to a bunch of Ted talks as well, where survivors and advocates spoke up about how often rape victims get neglected, guilt tripped and victim blamed for ripping apart the “perfect” lives of their perpetrators after they told their story. After they told their TRUTH.
