I used to think the only way I could be beautiful was by being the “ideal” woman. I thought having a small waist, and a goddess like body was ideal.
I thought I’d be less lonely, less insecure and less empty with that ideal body. Got tired of the crash diets, and crying when I looked in the mirror. These few women that society glorifies have this image that the majority of women just don’t pertain to.
Us women come in different shapes and sizes. We are all made of different genes, different features, different beautiful skin tones.
What we see glorified on t.v and what society tells us we should look like is something we need to fight against.
We all come in different sizes and in different varieties. Us women make the world go round and if someone can’t accept your beauty in its unique form, then show them what they are messing with.
Be strong, be unapologetic.
This is a reminder to the world and myself that being a woman is much more than our bodies. It’s our brains, our smiles, our goals, our personalities, the list is infinite.
The “ideal” woman is every woman.
We are all ideal in our own beautiful way.
