"I believe that every body is beautiful regardless of the point of view we are seeing it from."
I was just saying yesterday I need to buy a mirror for my room...
Day 3 #sensualselfiechallenge
The challenge was to take a selfie from unflattering angle.
I chose this photo because no matter how much I talk about body positivity and fat positivity, there is still a voice in my head that hates how fat I am and amplifies the scrutiny from the outside world.
I hate looking at myself in the mirror sometimes.
I wish my chest was more symmetrical. I wish my skin was smoother. I wish I was thin.
That voice just reinforces my insecurities tho. That voice says, if I was thin, if I was cis (a cis man or woman tbh), if I did have symmetrical features, then the world would love me...but that isn't true either.
And I mean I can lose weight, Ive done it before...but that won't change how I feel about myself because it's been ingrained in my head that fat people are disgusting, which is also untrue.
The point is to feel good in the body that you have presently, and I have worked so hard on that.
I'm not feeling great today, so in order to take care of myself, I am going to make sure I eat more than once today(I usually only eat once or twice a day with hours in between), remind myself not to feel bad for eating more than once today, and remind myself that although I am fat and although I am trans, I am still human who deserves love, respect, affection and attention. .
Affirmations from @4locrow :
-My body is a good body regardless of what outside opinions and standards dictate.
-I am thankful for my body and all it does for me even when I do not treat it as well as I would like.
-I deserve to give love, kindness and respect to myself.
-I am beautiful from every angle, but I do not need to be beautiful to be of value.
