Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside. By: Unknown ————————————————————————-
Was auch immer du körperlich bist... männlich oder weiblich, stark oder schwach, krank oder gesund - all diese Dinge sind weniger wichtig als das, was dein Herz enthält. Wenn du die Seele eines Kriegers hast, bist du ein Krieger. All diese anderen Dinge sind das Glas, das die Lampe enthält, aber du bist das Licht im Inneren. By: Unknown

Listen-we are ALL human. We have all been living in this weight-centric, thin-idealizing society, which is why we have been conditioned to compliment weight loss no.matter.what. I totally get that which is why this is not mean to shame folks for making these types of comments.
But the thing is, we rarely have any idea about another person's body. When we make a comment about perceived weight-loss, we 1) assume it was intentional and 2) assume it has been a positive, non-disordered experience for the individual.
You know what happens when we assume...🐴
ALSO when we congratulate people on weight loss, we are actively colluding with fatphobia. We are basically affirming that fat is bad and thin is good-which is diet-culture garbage, biased, and oppressive AF🙅🏻♀️
This type of comment may just be an invitation for that person to begin questioning their "before" look.
Or it may be the comment that confirms that their disordered eating, depression or medical condition is necessary to be perceived as attractive🤦🏻♀️
Compliment their intellect. Compliment their humor. Compliment their vibe. Compliment their warmth. There are SO many things to compliment other than weight loss❤️ ...
SWIPE right for POEM | FAIRYTALES |🌱🌱 I hope you do some gardening on this beautiful Tuesday. I’ll be creating more fairy gardens in the rain.
I like taking old discarded relics and reusing them. This was a typewriter shell I found. If you know me, you know I have a deep affection for typewriters. I couldn’t stand to see this in the dump so I repurposed it. It fits right in with the theme of my house.
See, even the old and neglected can shine once again if you remind it of its importance. — Alfa xoxo
