For the Ladies

I feel the internal struggle of being “enough” from women everywhere, mainly because I face the same struggles. For some reason, we have to be pretty or lady-like in manners & appearances that only society finds acceptable - but in doing these things (such as, but not limited to, having a hairless body, dolled up face, & answering to every man that demands it), we often deny ourselves the person that is truly us. So here’s what I have to say for every woman out there: don’t cover up that beautiful face if you don’t want to. Don’t force yourself to be someone you don’t want to be. No matter which way you twist it, we are women & every woman is beautiful & unique in their own way. So the next time you sigh in annoyance from upholding the standards of being a lady, ask yourself who you’re really doing it for & why. Who said you had to be this type of pretty or have that type of mannerism? If not you, then who? Why does it even matter?

I always had problems with my big breasts and my wide hips - but now I finally came to the point where I absolutely adore them. The tumblr community was a big (no pun intended) part of my way to accepting myself! Thanks to all those lovely ladies on here!

I recently made an account where I’m posting more of myself - come by, say hi! :) http://emmykandy.tumblr.com/

Hey, I’m Suzi. I’m 26 and from the UK and a size (UK) 20-22. This is my first time submitting.

I started following this tumblog a few days ago and I’m staggered by how beautiful and kind and lovely everyone is. 

I’m on my own journey to becoming more body positive and happy with myself and today I’m feeling pretty awesome and a bit mermaidy. I just dyed my hair a bit pink (I have the week off work, so why not?) and I love this t-shirt (it’s from Primark, size 20). Today I’m just happy to be me, fat and all.

This is me currently. I’m a size 13 in the US. You could say I’m “average” I suppose. I’ve always been chubby and hated it but im recently started to love it. I’ve always been an active person but I’ll alway be considered “thick” because of my body shape and I’m okay with that. <3
