Everyone has a different body. Some of us are tall. Some of us are short. Some people have lots of hair, others, not so much. Some of us are old, some of us are young or in between. Some people choose to adorn their body with tattoos or piercings. Others prefer not to. Some women have big boobs, others are less endowed. Some of us have stretch marks or scars. Some of us have rolls of skin, others are more flat. Some people have pale skin while others have dark skin.
The differences between people are many but do those differences mean that one type of body is better than another? Who gets to decide what is beautiful or desirable; society, social media, family or friends? What gives them the right to say we are or are not beautiful? The fact is no one has that right. Beauty is found in the differences between one person and another. Our differences make us each a unique or one of a kind creation. We are each of us a limited edition and therefore very valuable.
Would you alter someone else’s painting or sculpture because you didn’t like it? I don’t think the artist would let you near their creation if that was your intent. This too, should be your attitude. Don’t let anyone into your space if their intent is to criticize, be rude or nasty. You are beautiful because you are a unique piece of creation. Your size, shape and colour are like a painting. Your body is the canvas and everything about it is art.
We are all different. We are all beautiful. We should all be shown love. We should all love ourselves. We should all be respected. We are all worthy.
We should all Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!
