|While I don't want to get into the feminism content behind this comic, I think it really encapsulates the helplessness people feel when they are judged.|
How often do you engage in Fat Talk?
In an effort to work on my self-esteem, I am working on my body image, both the actual presentation and how I view myself. To help how I veiw myself, I am going to stay out of the Fat Talk scenario. I just won't engage, because if I do, all the positive work that I have put in will become buried under new comparisons that I hadn't even thought of. If someone give me the Fat Talk prompt, I will do my best to stay the hell away form the conversation. If I must engage, I will keep myself out of it, instead tell the person how beautiful he or she is. Lastly, I will work on focus on finding what I love about myself, rather than focusing on what I hate about myself. After all, in the words of the fabulous Ru Paul, "If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"
