You’ve probably heard me say it before:
𝙸. 𝙰𝚖. 𝚃𝚑𝚒𝚌𝚔.
I love the way I look. To me, being thick is like a badge of honor that I display proudly on my chest. Plus, it’s super hard to kidnap someone as thick as me. I weigh a lot.
But, I wasn’t always this happy with the way I look. Being thick used to not be okay with me. It used to be hard for me to admit. I literally used to try to convince people that I was legitimately just “big-boned”. (I also still stand by that this is a thing, my ribs are significantly more broad than other peoples…right?).
I literally used to pray that all the junk food I would eat would slide right down my throat, skip my tummy and go straight to my booty. 𝙷𝙾𝚆 𝙼𝙴𝙽𝚃𝙰𝙻 𝙸𝚂 𝚃𝙷𝙰𝚃.
As time has progressed, so has the world’s opinions of body shape and body image. Society has altered its view of fuller women. 𝒯𝒽𝒾𝒸𝓀 𝒽𝒶𝓈 𝒷𝑒𝒸𝑜𝓂𝑒 𝒶 𝓇𝑒𝓋𝑜𝓁𝓊𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃. It is “in”.
This has made things easier for me. Not because I am actually content with my body (more on that next time), but because people have started to accept the fact that it’s okay to not fit that image of being skinny.
But doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose?? Have we gone too far? Shouldn’t I love myself no matter which body type is in season?
People strive to obtain this image of what they THINK the world’s definition of “𝓉𝒽𝒾𝒸𝓀” is.
The definition that says: "It’s okay to be thick, but just as long as you’re thick in all the right places, and if you’re thicker in the middle and not in the back, then you’re just fat”.
𝙷𝚘𝚠 𝚒𝚜 𝚝𝚑𝚊𝚝 𝚏𝚊𝚒𝚛?
Society is not allowed to pick and choose which type of thick is popular, or which body shape is going to be fashionable come Spring 2020.
I’m afraid that we have worked so hard to make us big-boned people feel accepted that in turn, we have made those who don’t look “𝒦𝒶𝓇𝒹𝒶𝓈𝒽𝒾𝒶𝓃-𝐸𝓈𝓆𝓊𝑒” feel inferior. The roles have been reversed and I don’t want to accept it anymore.
So why have we put so much emphasis on it? It’s like everyone is obsessed with having big bootys and small waists, IT’S NOT A REAL THING PEOPLE.
So stop wearing your waist trainers, stop buying butt inserts for your jeans, stop watching all those Insta videos about how to get a better butt and quick ways to lose that belly fat.
AND START to accept every body type the way we have accepted this revolution of thick women (don’t get me wrong, I love all the thiccness). But people who don’t fit that image should not be made to feel like they are any less 𝓌𝑜𝓂𝒶𝓃𝓁𝓎, 𝓈𝑒𝓍𝓎, 𝓋𝒾𝓋𝒶𝒸𝒾𝑜𝓊𝓈 and 𝒸𝓊𝓇𝓋𝒶𝒸𝑒𝑜𝓊𝓈 as everyone else. They are just as worthy.
Your body is beautiful and the world is going to be in awe of you just the way you are. Don’t ever let the world trick you into being ashamed of your body, because you got all the right stuff in all the right places.
