Every body is beautiful!

Hey hey everyone!!
 
I decided to start writing about something that is very close to my heart: loving your curves! I decided to post it every Friday and call it Curvy Friday.
 
Nowadays society makes us think that if we don’t look like a Victoria Secret’s model or aren’t skinny, then we’re automatically ugly. I think what’s ugly is making us think like that and making us girls feel ugly and not good enough!
 
There are no bad bodies..no ugly bodies! Everyone is beautiful in their own way, so what if some of us have a tummy or chubby arms? So what if we have cellulite (every girl has it!!)? The problem is that society makes us think it is bad to have those things..but who decided that?
You know one thing I really hate? That people don’t see that there is a difference between having curves or even being fat (I have a friend of mine who gladly says she’s fat and accepts it and is one of the most confident people I know!) and being sick. I think having curves is beautiful! Being morbidly obese is different. I think the most important thing is to be healthy!!
 
I hate when my family says I should go on a diet because I’m fat and ugly. Yes, my aunts have said that. But what they don’t realize is that I eat healthy most of the time!! Yes, if there is a birthday dinner and I feel like having dessert, I will surely order it, but then again I also don’t eat any entrees and usually stick to salads with grilled steak, whereas they eat fried stuff and fatty meats and such…
 
And I think I’m not alone when I want to just tell them to shut the fuck up (excuse my french) and mind their own business! I grew up hearing I was “fat”, “too big”, “had a good face” (do you even know how insulting that is?) and not being able to find clothes my size, not because I was too big, but because I was to big for my age. And that’s what people don’t get! I was taller than any other girl when I was 10. I looked like a 15 year old. But I wasn’t fat and certainly not ugly!
But growing up in that environment and later on when I got sick and put on 60kg in two weeks due to medication, took a big toll on my self-esteem and confidence level. Being in two different relationships later with guys who just criticized me and my body also didn’t help. 
 
But now, I’m happy. I am still self conscious. I still have days when I cry because I feel ugly and big, but I know that’s what everyone else put into my head! And I urge all you girls out there to try and feel the same thing!!! You are beautiful!!! Wear skirts, wear dresses, show your legs (I have a BIG problem with my legs and arms, but look at me below, I look good in that dress!)
Look how good I look in a skirt, why was I scared?
 
Next time someone calls you fat or ugly or anything like that just look inside yourself. Are you healthy? That’s what matters, not the size of your pants!! 
 
You are beautiful, believe it!
 
Your curves are sexy, flaunt them!
 
Your smile is gorgeous, just be happy and show it!
 
I hope you liked this post and please let me know what you thought!

    That's a really good post, Rosie!

    I like it that you're so brave to get personal about such sensitive topics. I grew up being chubby and I spent most of my teens starving myself. I've always had self-confidence issues because I am short with legs too short and hips way too wide. I still have my bad days now but I feel good most of the time and I have a lovely boyfriend who thinks I'm gorgeous and that's nice 🙂

    There was once a Body Shop campaign which said “there are 3 billion women in the world and only 8 look like a super model”, so true. I also think that family has a great impact on our psyche and it's really sad that you've been told bad things by your aunts. You look good and as long as you're healthy, confident and happy that's all that matter!

    aww what a great post ! and what fabulous pictures !! you look amazing !

    I was also always the tallest in my grade… it was not the nicest feeling.
    I do not have curves… and i wish i did…
    life is anyway so much more complex than our external appearance.

    And these boyfriends who criticise you, please dump them. They dont deserve you ! Better to be alone, than to be with a horrible man ! trust me !

    I agree – but I think health is the #1 priority. I don't think a way-neglected, totally out-of-shape body is a good body, and I don't think that people who mistreat their bodies should let themselves think that – it encourages them to continue being out of shape!

    But I want to say that I think it's so, so amazing that even when you were younger you were able to see through your family's empty and mean criticisms and still love yourself – it shows incredible strength. My family used to say the same thing to me, and it made me turn to really unhealthy methods of trying to lose weight (I'm better now though).

    Thank you Irene!! I try to be as real as I can in this blog and hiding my past is not an option! I'm sorry you also had to go through that, it's so horrible how sometimes families can be so nasty!!!

    I also have an amazing boyfriend right now, that supports me and loves me for who I am =D

    Thank you Alexa!!

    You wish you had more curves and I wish I had less, why is it we're never happy? =P

    I'm not with those guys anymore! I'm happily dating the man I hope to spend the rest of my life with, for over a year now and he's the most supporting and amazing boyfriend ever!!

    I agree with you Isa, health is the most important thing! Having that said, someone that is curvy doesn't automatically mean that the person is unhealthy!

    When I was younger I couldn't see so much through what they said…but as time went by I'm getting better at doing so =)

    Thank you for commenting!
