[Trigger: Discussion of body-related issues and wrongful holocaust analogy]
::Moment of boldness and bravery::… So I took this photo about a month and a half ago for a self esteem project I tasked myself with. I’ve had people tell me.. “I don’t why your esteem is so low.. you’re beautiful” or.. “I would gladly trade bodies with you” Happily, I say to them.. because I would give anything to gain just 20 pound. More even. But for some reason I can’t, and I’ve become mildly obsessed with trying to accomplish just that.
… I’ve also had people look at me and think it’s disgusting, which doesn’t help. But they hide with jokes about how comparable I am to a Holocaust victim. Not only are there a thousand things wrong with said comparison, but it makes me think that I might just actually be too damn skinny.
.. So about this project; I decided to, obviously, take nude photos. I tasked myself with looking at at least one of them at a minimum of once a week. With each glance I was able to stare longer and longer. Well, today.. I was actually able to look at this photo and say, — “Smile, Megan… you’re beautiful” — So I thought I’d share it with you.

Illusory correlations:

  1. Skinny = unhealthy, anorexic, bulimic OR
  2. Skinny = better, superior, beautiful, healthy
  3. Not skinny = average
  4. Too much of not skinny = ugly
  5. Fat = unhealthy, lazy, self-infliction, ugly OR
  6. Fat = better, beautiful, real, healthy

I’m not in the mood to elaborate, but hopefully it doesn’t get too confusing.

The word healthy has been so falsely correlated to skinny and fat people solely based on outer appearance, it’s horrible.

I totally wrote the same thing down in my AP Psychology notes. x]
