Infographic: Women are dying to be thin

This popped up on one of my social media feeds this morning and I knew I had to share it with you all. I find this absolutely terrifying. It’s no wonder eating disorders seem to be more common than ever when everything around us tells us we are too big or not good enough.

Don’t let yourself be defined by a clothing size or mannequin. You are not a small, medium, large or extra-large. You are you, perfectly unique and not a cookie cutter cutout. You know that what you see in the media and on the runways isn’t right, so don’t fall for it. If you are happy and doing your best to be healthy (not necessarily skinny), that’s perfectly okay.

Be yourself, not what someone else has decided you should be. Loving yourself is more important than a size or measurement. 

Aaaaand: end rant/hopefully uplifting speech.
