It’s time to take back what was always ours to begin with. Our freedom. Before the judgement, the comparisons, and the shaming. Before trends distanced friends, and false idols distorted our personal truths. Suppressing the internal and consumed with the external. Let us share our pain so that we can shift mindsets and change the game. Together we can buck the trends, smash the stereotypes, and reclaim our dignity. If we aspire to see all bodies as good bodies, we must unpack and unlearn old habits. We must ditch the inner-critic and crush the illusions. Fall in love with our bodies again, one day at a time. Let’s make peace with ourselves, because that kind of freedom is virtuous.
