I wanted to make I post I could link too whenever someone asks me this~
Seriously. Even if I was hella in shape, really healthy, no one would be asking for health or work out tips from me if I was fat. Stop assuming because someone looks like what society deems as ‘healthy’ or ‘fit’ that they are, it’s a lie, they are try to sell you things and make you hate and judge strangers. Stop buying into it.
I love this so much, I have no words.
THANK you! Cause no one listens when a fat person tries to explain this.
I noticed, I’ve seen several fat people make a great posts about this, only to see their inbox being blown up with ‘YOU’RE JUST MAKING EXCUSES!’ it’s disgusting because it has absolutely nothing to do with the persons health and it’s fucked up to hid behind that bullshit faux concern because someone isn’t killing themselves to fit into what is considered ideal to make someone else more comfortable in consuming them as a product rather then treat them as a person.
this is very important
"Race is constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it."
"Wherever perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not about healthy striving, which you see all the time in successful leaders, it’s not about trying to set goals and being the best we can be, perfectionism is basically a cognitive behavioral process that says if I look perfect, work perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid shame, ridicule, and criticism. It’s a defense mechanism."
"Why Doing Awesome Work Means Making Yourself Vulnerable"
So, I’ve been waiting for someone to explain this extremely simple concept to me my entire life.
Hooooly shit I needed to read this article.
"When I interview leaders, artists, coaches, or athletes who are very successful, they never talk about perfectionism as being a vehicle for success. What they talk about is that perfectionism is a huge trigger, one they have to be aware of all the time, because it gets in the way of getting work done."
