With the rise of body awareness, being plus sized fashion has become a much talked about issue. Gone are the days when only model thin women could dress fashionably. Today, thanks to positive body image awareness activists, major fashion houses have been started catering to their needs. In the West, people like Ashley Graham and a couple of others are flying the flag high. Oprah Winfrey shared a quote that we found very relevant to share with you. Take some time out to read this, let this sink in and love yourself some more.
“Step Away from the Mean Girls…
…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.
This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
― Oprah Winfrey
