Let's Talk Body Issues

Since joining Instagram about two years ago I can't help but notice how much girls bash each other over the way they look.  If someone has boobs and a bum, they're fat?  If someone has a flat stomach, they're too skinny?  It's terrible how judgmental society has become and even worse is the fact that they think it's okay to make these nasty comments.  

I'm not saying everyone is like this, in fact, most people aren't.  I know someone who posts a bikini photo is asking to be looked at and scrutinised but you need to learn when to keep your thoughts to yourself.  Do you not stop and think how this might affect the person posting it?  That they are human beings with feelings?

I was always really skinny as a kid and am still quite naturally thin now but I hated it when people called me skinny.  The word skinny can be just as hurtful as calling someone fat. We need to learn to accept everyone as they are and realise that beauty comes from within.  I know this is all really cliche but I feel it's something that needs to be repeated.

Maybe these people are insecure themselves and that's why they hate?  Either way it's wrong and if they tried to accept and love themselves as they are then maybe they could do the same to others?  We should be supporting each other and lift each other up.  That's what will give people a confidence boost and isn't it nice to make someone feel good about themselves?

At the end of the day it's okay if you don't look like a Victoria's Secret model and if you want a slice of pizza every now and again, you go for it!  Don't be hard on yourself and definitely don't let other people make you feel bad.

What are your opinions on this, do you feel the same way?
