|When you want to give up, and everyones got you down…|
I wrote a post recently after a conversation with a family member
“My friend was on your facebook and thinks you have body issues”
so i posted the following:
“A Guy is into the gym= He’s Strong.
A Girl is into the gym = She’s Self concious with body issues?
I’m breaking the mould “
Instantly my family member says “You do have body issues” I assumed they were joking and ignored it and comments came in thick and fast praising me and saying how good it is for women to feel confident in their own skin.
That member however said they were serious and I think i have a problem because i exercise constantly.
I’m happy, I’m the best I’ve ever been, mentally and physically and they’re labeling me as ‘broken’ damaged and weak.
Body issues ” You’re saying it’s this awful word and giving it more meaning” He said ” It is!” I cry.
Most people who have had issues in the past will no that words scar you, they etch into your skin like wet cement, Don’t put your words onto my body. I exercise because its the one release in life, the one thing i’m happy doing, people who put me down only make me stronger.
And I treat my body by rewarding it with good foods and it is showing me how happy it is.
Quick tips for staying motivated:
