Mind Your Own Body

Mind Your Own Body

Hello pretty girl, welcome to society!

The one who knows what suits you more

Than you know yourself

The one who tell you what to do

And mock you behind you

The one who hail your milestone

And bully you anonymously

The one who look you in the eye and call you beautiful

But describe how ugly you look to others

Image result for body shaming

Society will call you fat


Too dark

Too fair

Too hairy

Too bald

Will even give you solutions

But won’t stop ridiculing 

Whichever way you appear

Image result for body shaming

It is really up to you, darling

To make sure you love how you are

If you do not love it, deal with it

If you do, flaunt it in their faces

You do not have to look like them

To fit in

Just make sure you are healthy

And you’d be fine in the end

It’s always irking when people look at another and just feel the need to negatively comment on their body and make them feel really bad. What you shamed this one for, another wishes for it so badly. We can’t have it all, so let’s learn to appreciate people for what and who they are. Everyone has a struggle they deal with!

    Haha. This is a topic I really like. Can write a whole book about this. Dami’s too skinny is a statement I’ve heard over and over for years in my life. But I’ve learned to be unbothered these days. People should learn body shaming is not cool.

    Sincerely I really appreciate this post because society had been giving me issues that I am fat and have big Tommy but now I love myself and I am ready to flaunt it in their faces

    I guess the whole idea is for one to feel comfortable in their size. I know people around me that would talk if i get fat hahaha. My brother often tell me and my elder sister that we have big stomach and we need to loose it hahaha. I guess i am not really offended by it because he is family and i can tell his intention behind the comment. Nothing derogatory. Really, its not about them talking but rather how do I feel about my body and does my weigh affect my health because truly the goal should be “Am i healthy?” If I am not, i work on it. I definitely don’t agree with body slamming but I also believe that we should not accept certain things for ourselves but exercise discipline at all times. Those that speak in derogatory ways about people’s weight show how immature they are.
