“We are a feminist publication/creative collective that publishes real and unreal stories. We welcome submissions with essays, stories, and poetry about body positivity.”
I highly recommend you visit their website and see their amazing work there.
Now back to the body positivity side. About her/they relationship with her/their body she told me that
“My relationship with my body and self is both autosexual and autoromantic. (I’m sexually and romantically attracted to myself.) I’m finally at the point in my body positivity where I can explore my attraction to myself without feeling restricted by society’s negative views of fat bodies like mine. I am beautiful and powerful in my own right, and I have my body to thank for carrying me through all of it.
Fat people deserve love, liberation, respect, and bodily autonomy.”
“I reached this point of acceptance by doing a lot of internal work and monitoring my self-talk. I used to have very low self-esteem and even was suffering from an ED for a long time. I started reading fat positivity books in high school, but I didn’t truly embrace body positivity until I started consciously healing my relationship with my body in 2017. It was body positivity that introduced me to the idea that all bodies deserve respect and love, which led me to fat liberation. I have good days and bad days, but my sense of worth and self-love still manages to flourish despite the trauma I’ve faced.”
You’re usually born with your gifts, and your dreams are things you wish for and try to accomplish in the future. Two totally different things. I have many dreams but my ultimate goal has to do with helping elderly people. Dreams don’t always come into fruition, but your gifted with your gift from birth. With that very gift, as you walk through life with it; you sometimes reconsider if your dream is actually what you want because of all the experiences/knowledge you’ve received to get it.
Untuk jiwa yang merasa dirinya selalu bertanya bahagiaku kapan datangnya?
Hei, boleh aku ketuk dirimu? Sekadar ingin melihat di dalamnya apakah semengenaskan itu? Lantas Kadar bahagiamu yang seperti apa? Sementara ini masih bisa bernafas dan menghirup udara bebas saja sudah melebihi harta dunia.
Jangan selalu mencari kurangnya, sebab tak akan ada ujungnya.
You are Precious!
Don’t forget to smile, don’t forget to always be grateful. You deserve to be happy! :)
