Body shaming is a no no

Hi you guys! So I really wanna talk about this topic because lately our society has been spot on the perfect beach body, big butt, thigh gaps, super skinny arms/legs, and being thick. And hearing about people's mean opinions on other women's figure is considered body shaming. 

Everyone's body is different. We have shapes that don't match someone's needs and that's fine. Their judgment don't matter at all to you. What's important is that you're beautiful and you stay beautiful. Simple, right? Well not for everyone. There are some who can be sensitive to opinions and some who aren't. Basically, words cut deeper than a sharp blade. Speaking about a girl's body in a bad way will only look bad for you. It shows that you wanna take credit for something you have than what the other person doesn't. Plus, your victim wouldn't feel as comfortable as she would've. I know it's the nature of people, but we need to focus on giving more positive energy aside from taking it away. 

Going through puberty, I wasn't really into looking good for my own body. I was mainly focused on keeping negativity away and being confident. But it changed by the time I enter high school where all the ladies dress with cleavage and showing some skin. There was this time when I went bra shopping and so, I ask a bra specialist from Victoria Secret to measure me. She said that I was a 32D and I went to try it on. The cups were fitted except the band size so I officially bought a 34D bra. Before, I never had measure my bra size until now because eyeing wasn't good since I wore a 36B cup for two years and it was super uncomfortable. But this new bra I had was easier to wear and didn't snug. The next day, I told my so-called friends about getting a new bra and they were not too happy about the sizing. They believe that my chest wasn't even big from appearance (since they never seen me wearing a tight fitted shirts and only bagging sweaters). The two kept laughing at me and said that maybe a B cup was a perfect match for me. I remember they were making a big commotion around the students and comparing their boob size from mine because it didn't look like theirs. I was so ashamed about my body from that point on. Not only did I lose my self-confidence, but I had to forget about them because they weren't the friends that make me happy. I tried looking up about bra sizing and most responses have said that it doesn't matter how big your bust is to fit the size as long as you're wearing the comfortable proper measurements. I believe it as well because numbers can't define who you are. I wish I could tell those girls about it, but they don't have time to give me respect. And all I can do is accept myself for the way I was born. 

No matter if you have or don't have that figure that everyone expects, as long as you feel good because nobody knows you the best. And we should do this world a favor by spreading positive energy to young girls because hey, a frowning face isn't pretty. 

See ya next time! Ciao ^__^

  2. Thank you for this very true and wise post. Honestly I didn't realise when I was young that I had a body with which I could be so satisfy. Now with 45 years fortunately I don't care that much when I was young ...

  3. Keep it up girl! Body shaming is a disgrace! We should all feel confident in our own bodies because they are healthy, strong, and are our way to stay alive! I hope one day as women we will support each other.

  5. Damn straight! Your body is no one else's business and it's really crap to see people putting others down or making comments about your own or someone else's body. What matters is individually we feel good inside and out and we are healthy mentally, physically, emotionally and sexually which is different for everyone.

  6. hey,

    im sorry you had to go through that. I've had similar experiences and I'd like to say you forget about it but - you don't. Just shrug it off and find nicer people you can talk to about personal stuff because they do exist. Not too easy to find =D I just tell myself they don't understand; if they did of course they wouldn't say things like that.

    This is a nice blog! It goes back to june only so i think you just started? Don't give up now like most people lol. Take it easy.
