As a society, we are used to living in a prejudiced world, where 90% of women for being appreciated and beautiful must be skinny and have beautiful shapes. Even on social media, girls try to photoshop their body shapes and try to hide their flaws.
At this point, the impact of social media on our society is very detrimental. Girls look at other girls’ pictures and try to copy-paste them, taking for example something that is not real.
We all know that nobody is perfect, and we have to try not to hide our flaws, but to take care of them. For that reason, today’s society is speaking loudly about Body Positivity.
Girl’s beautiful shapes and sizes
Body Positivity is the idea that people should accept and respect their body shapes and sizes, and they should be happy and proud of themselves.
Even though the body positivity definition is also very misinterpreted, everyone tries to interpret it differently.
Promotion of Body Positivity
Stacy Berman, a Ph.D. in Natural Medicine, says that it is very important to speak about body positivity, to not give so much importance to body “negativity”. Body negativity is exactly what we do not want for our society.
This can lead to anxiety, depression, physical and mental illness, bulimia, anorexia, and health issues. So it is very significant to do the right choice and love yourselves.
Body positivity and acceptance
Body positivity does not speak only for body shape, but for every other feature of people’s bodies. For example, different scars like a post-operation scar or cesarean scar, or even acne and other signs.
