From the innumerable publication coverings plastered with waif modelings to web ads oozing with the next revolutionary weight-loss hacker, its hard to get away from thecultural narrative that hollers skinny is BETTER .
Reportedly, a total of 75 percent of all American women endorse some unhealthy thinks, seems or behaviours related to food or their own bodies and those are just all those people who admitted to it in a survey .
If were being honest with ourselves, weve ALL likely had those reckons at some degree in our lives.
In this eraof Photoshopped thighs and the girl child contracting every-eating-disorder-under-the-sun, its become quite the trend to champion body-positive thoughts and self-acceptance through social media.
Youve all visualized the memes.
Im so Flaw-some
And Imperfection is beauty
Those quotes look all adorable when packaged in their Pinterest-perfect graphics, but to what degree do we actually believe them?
Particularly after having children, its not uncommon for a womans body confidence to plummet to an all-time low. Your tight abs shall be substituted for post-baby flab and your once supple scalp now carries the marks of tiger-striped stretching marks.
Hows that for seeming attractive ? Particularly when it comes to pleasing “the mens” who fell in love with the once-upon-a-Barbie-bod version of you.
Well for Mum on the Run, Laura Mazza, thats something shes finally starting to be at peace with after warring for years over her fading appears. But whats most beautiful is her husbands response to her anxieties about the body he didnt fall in love with.
In a viral Facebook post, Laura bares her heart about the wonderful man wholooks past her stretching celebrates and straight into the soul of the mother who bore his babes 😛 TAGEND
This isnt the body you fell in love with.
I said to him.
The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretch differentiates on my belly , none on my boob , no bowel from muscle separation.
The body he fell in love with are integrated into tight jeans, could walk into a store and grab different sizes and walk out, knowing it fit.
This body now couldnt shop at those stores, and mainly wears leggings. His torso stayed the same, but mine changed in every style. It isnt fair
I stood in front of him, wearied and shattered, the tears welled in my eyes, this isnt the body you fell in love with. Then he mentioned, youre right. It isnt the body I fell in love with.
Instead its a torso that developed our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it built life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day
I didnt know what enjoy was until I saw this torso and found out all it could do, so thank you.
Do not be ashamed of what you have, or what your mum torso looks like, theres plenty of time to give up cake in the future, for now, enjoy the moments you have, and enjoy the fact that you have made something that is worth every stretching celebrate and every dimple.
If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, its worth every bit of love and more.
Lauras terms of encouragement are a powerful reminder that the body we have IS worth loving And furthermore, it is NOT infused with the kind of charm that lasts.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised .~ Proverbs 31:30
