They shame us because we’re too fat. They shame us because we’re too skinny. They shame us because we’re not strong enough. They shame us because we’re strong. They shame is because we’re too short. They shame us because we’re too tall. They shame us because we’re too light. They shame is because we’re too dark.

They say real women have curves.  They say real men have muscles.

But, look around, we don’t live in an age of robots, every person here is a real person. Skinny, fat, athletic, muscular, light, dark, feminine, masculine, short, tall, whatever…WE ARE ALL REAL MEN AND WOMEN.

I started writing this blog post after I read yet another article of body shaming, this particular one being about Ronda Rousey. It struck a nerve because athletic and muscular is the body I’m striving for, that and because I personally think she is an amazing athlete who also happens to be beautiful.

Internet bullies say she has a man’s body. Floyd Mayweather referred to her as he.

If this is a man’s body, I want to look like a man!

Famous or not, man or woman, we are all real. And we are all made perfect in God’s image.

If you’re not happy with your body, change it.  But, change it for you.  Be beautiful for you. Your idea of beautiful may not be someone else’s idea of beautiful, but if you’re happy with yourself,  their opinion doesn’t matter.

So go on, do you and do you 100%.
