Just thought I might share my own WEIGHT experience and self-consciousness because it’s always been something that bothers me since I was little (just a spur of moment thing I know)
In Asian culture, what’s considered ‘a perfect/beautiful figure’ is being skinny (in which rn I see as being underweight). I used to be bullied/ teased because of how chubby I was back in primary school. I was always told by friends and even family how chubby I was and how big my legs and calves were (the parts of my body I used to dislike so much). Growing up older, as a teenager at the age of 13,14, I lost a lot of weight and for the first time, I got so many complements on how I looked ‘prettier’ and got such a nice figure. Ever since, I thought that was the weight I should always kept myself at.
But now thinking back about it, i guess all that was just a clueless assumption, that was influenced by other people’s preferences and opinions. I’ve come to realise that you should be comfortable in your own skin. Also thanks to my baby who always loves me for who I am, all the imperfections I’ve got and has always been telling me how beautiful I was almost everyday. My self-confidence has been boosted way more than it ever was. At times I still feel self-conscious but I know that’s only normal coz who doesn’t? No ones perfect. I’ve realised I love being thick more than ‘the perfect skinny’ every Asian person likes.
P.s: i was inhaling to make my tummy flat in the first pic 😂🤷♀️ thực sự chỉ muốn nói, gầy hay béo đều có vẻ đẹp riêng của nó. Thích gầy hay béo là ý kiến riêng của mỗi ng. T thấy cách áp đặt suy nghĩ và ý kiến của mình lên ng khác là ích kỉ và cổ hủ. Thế nên, ai khi mà gặp một ng có nặng cân 1 chút nên suy nghĩ trc khi nói ra những lời khó nghe và làm tổn thương ng khác vì thực sự là ko đáng. Thế thôi ☺️ ______________________________________________________ #tbt #throwback #20 #girl #asiangirl #thick #thin #glowup #bikini #fashion #makeup #love #body #self
