"The big turning point was learning why I hated my body in the first place. Most of us go through our lives thinking hating our bodies is the norm, that it’s our fault because we don’t try hard enough or we don’t have enough willpower to change. I always blamed myself and my body and thought there was no other way. • I started learning about body positivity and things like diet culture (which is our cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness being the only way to be good enough) and fatphobia. Learning all these terms that have fuelled our body hatred and taught us our bodies aren’t good enough was the first step to accepting my body. There’s a $60 billion diet industry in America and a £2 billion diet industry in the UK that thrives on teaching us our bodies aren’t good enough. There’s something bigger than us teaching us to feel the way we do about our bodies. • We are not to blame, our bodies are not the problem. Letting go of that blame and realising it wasn’t my fault and this is something that has been done to me my entire life allowed me to realise I deserved better and that’s a starting point for anyone whose really struggling with their body. I was a child when I first thought my body was wrong and I now realise I never deserved that. No one ever deserved to be made to feel like their body was wrong. We all deserve better than hating ourselves for our entire lives." – me for @glamouruk ✨ you can read the full interview via the link in my bio! 💜💙💚🌈🌞 • [Image description: a tweet that reads "I just abso-fucking-lutely refuse to spend any more of my life shrinking my body to fit a made up beauty ideal that only exists that only exists so corporations can make $$$ from us chasing it. I've got more important shit to do."] #bodypositivity #dietculture #edrecovery #bodyacceptance #bodypositive
