Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.
Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul."

Hi. I’m Bree, and I think the following Facebook status I made describes my situation perfectly:
Hi, so I’ve noticed a lot of people tend to think that thinking you’re too fat is the only thing you can mean when you say “I dislike my body”. Personally, I think my figure is great. Like anyone, I had days where I thought I was too fat, but it was never a big problem. I’m lucky that I’ve never really had a problem with my figure (and my heart goes out to anyone that does).
What was a problem, however, were my self-harm scars.
They’re more prominent than you can see in this photo; they cover my left and upper arms, too, as well as my lower legs. For two and a half years, I wore only long sleeves. I thought I was ugly. I thought I’d ruined my body. I didn’t see how anyone could love me, physically or otherwise, with scars. Then I realized something: they don’t make me more beautiful, but they don’t make me less so. They’re just… there. Sorta like a decoration, not to romanticize it or anything— that’s just how I see it. I don’t promote people self-harming. I just think that if you can’t change it, you might as well love it. And anyone I really want to love me can past them and recognize that I’m beautiful in other ways.
Now, I’ve gotten looks and remarks everywhere I go when I wear short sleeves (or—god help us— a bikini!). As if I don’t have the right to exist without feeling self-conscious about myself. As if I am now so ugly and not normal-looking that I don’t have the right to be confident in myself. And that absolutely enrages me. Do you stare at someone deformed or handicapped? No, you were taught as a CHILD how rude that is. So in what way is it different with self-harm? Why is there such a stigma around it to the point where I should have to hide something “so private”? Why can’t I tell people the truth when they ask? I’m not saying I’m proud of it, and I’m not saying people don’t absolutely have the right to hide it if they want to, but why should I be shamed as an “attention-seeker” if I want to wear short sleeves in 90 degree weather?
I’ve also gotten complaints from people IRL that it triggers them. That is the only reason I still cover up as much as possible these days; not because I’m ashamed, but because I really don’t want to make people uncomfortable if it makes them want to self-harm. However, there is a bit of a problem with this, in that I’m all for not triggering people… when possible. Sometimes, it’s 90 fucking degrees out and I just can’t wear long sleeves. I tag my triggers on tumblr, I do anything I can to avoid triggering people, but at some point, you can’t expect me to live my life to avoid making you triggered. (Oh, and another thing— you don’t really have to look at my scars. There’s also something called, y’know, my face. I know that’s hard (other peoples’ scars trigger me, too) because it’s just so obviously there, but please don’t act like I’m a horrible person for not covering up.)
I guess what I’m saying here is, no, I shouldn’t be ashamed of my body just because YOU find it repulsive.
Well..This is me.
After loosing 25 pounds I finally feel semi comfortable in shorts. I know I still have cottage cheese thighs, but fuck it. Everyone has flaws, everyone has insecurities. What makes it so I have to coverup when it’s warm outside? A few extra pounds? Nah that’s not a good enough reason.
