Does size even matter?

Theres so much shame engrained in our society, fat shaming , skinny shaming, makeup shaming to name just a few of the 'shaming topics' most talked about.

Theres so much focus on body positivity and yet no body seems to have a clear idea of what exactly the concept means.

So in case you couldn't guess, I'm going to give you my thoughts.

If you're a size 24 and you're happy, healthy and at peace with your life choices, then by all means hashtag away, those two words...Body positive. The same also goes if you're a size 6, comfortable within your size.

There's been times, the scales have had a bit less weight on them. Its hasn't meant that I'm happier or un happier and the same goes for the times in my life where I've been heavier. My level of happiness, confidence and self esteem aren't reliant on the size on my jeans, and I'm extremely proud to say that, I know I haven't always felt this way and to me being able to openly say that is exactly what body positivity is about.

Do you know whats not body positive? Telling people what size, weight or shape they should be.

Labelling others as fake because of the way they do their makeup, tan their skin, or the push up bra that boosts their cleavage to Katie Price level.

Guess what it's THEIR body not yours.

Personally I think the whole body positivity movement needs to take a step back and have a think about what they really stand for. In my eyes it's all about acceptance, being comfortable in your own skin, the self love and self confidence you feel when you look in the mirror each morning.

I don't wear makeup because I'm fake, but because thats how I feel most confident. Thats how I FEEL most comfortable,

and if that's what its all about...Does size even matter?
