I was once told, by my boyfriend, that my legs look like big tree trunks

Did someone ever made an inappropriate comment about your body
and did that stuck with you forever?

If so, you’re not alone.

I heard so many different versions of that story while working with women with the Radicata SEED Protocol.

Body shaming is unfortunately very common and it can scar us for the rest of our lives.

One of the thing that made me HATE my thighs and hide them is this one.
I would never wear anything above the knee or something too revealing like leggings.

I thought there was obviously something seriously wrong with me.

I tried restricting my food and doing cardio like a maniac. My thighs stayed.

I thought I might have a hormonal imbalance and tried so many supplements against estrogen dominance. My thighs stayed.

I tried hating my thighs and speak so many mean words to them and myself hoping they would melt. My thighs stayed.

Then I started making peace with my self and peace with my body started to follow.

Wearing leggings allowed me to see and get to know their shape. It allowed me to slowly gain confidence in showing them to the world without hiding.

I don’t love my thighs but I don’t hate them anymore.

And now, when I think of these words, I feel proud! I love trees!

This is a reminder for me that I am strong and that, like a tree, I need to feel grounded and connected. ❤️🌲🌸

 

And I would like to share these three things with you:

1) It’s NOT ok to expect all women to fit the same mold.

2) It’s also NOT ok for people to be commenting on our body. I think we would all agree on this about the negative comments that some people may feel entitled to give us.

However, I would go a step further and say that it’s probably a good idea to avoid commenting on other’s bodies PERIOD. Even the positive things! 

This is only reinforcing the deep beliefs that society drilled into our heads about how our appearance should be our top priority. It keeps the focus on our facade instead of what truly makes us who we are.

3) And it’s definitely NOT ok to think that women’s main purpose is to be pretty and desirable for the opposite sex.

🌟 I want to be remembered for who I am,
NOT what I look like.
