Beauty comes in all forms, stop judging yourself and others
THE world has this perceived idea about women.
You know we are all supposed to have tanned skin, perfect, luscious hair, blemish- free skin and be super skinny, right?
Let me tell you something, I love food, I'm not stick thin and I am okay with that.
In fact I love my body.
I am tired of hearing girls and women say 'if only I had skinnier legs', 'I wish I had a flat stomach'.
Stop judging yourself and stop judging others. You are beautiful and so is the woman sitting next to you.
A few 'real' women have been asked how they perceive their bodies and how they are perceived in their work environment.
Aussie model Robyn Lawley is a size 12 and is considered a plus size model.
She was recently interviewed by Ellen. Watch the video to see what she says about body image.
We aren't supposed to love our bodies, and when a women breaks that mould and screams from the rooftop that she is okay with the skin she is in, it's like all the women in the world run to the toilet to take off their spanx.
Jennifer Lawrence was at a press conference for her upcoming movie and was asked by someone in the audience about how she deals with body image in Hollywood.
She goes on to say that if we keep calling each other fat, if we keep putting each other down that is going to become 'the real world' and it is going to be considered normal.
What we need to remember that there isn't a set size, shape, measurement that women need to fit.
There is no such thing as a 'real' woman.
We are all real, we are all different, we are all amazing and that's why the world is so great.
What we need to realise is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
How boring would it be if we were all the 'perfect woman', whatever that actually is.
