You be you #LimeRoadBornReal
Body shaming has been around for the longest time and yet the approach to judging someone based on their looks has updated through time. It can make someone feel underestimated, objectified and isolated to the point they start to believe their true self is at fault for some crime. The rather strange thing about anti body-shaming campaigns is that you will never see a size zero person in there who felt bullied for their physical appearance.
Truth is skinny shaming is extremely prevalent and people don't realize it as much. In a society where our perceptions are quite distorted by the trends, groupism and bully becomes the ultimate outcome of such projections and anyone can be the victim! Yet skinny shaming is not even treated as a "real problem".
I tried my best to pay my humble tribute to Amy Winehouse, wonderful and talented musician who was also an easy target of skinny-shaming by the media. She has inspired millions around the world not to conform into the look of a certain "good-girl" stereotype just to fit-in.
All kinds of body-shaming is just a horrible thing to do and it is up to our generation to stop objectifying ourselves and each other all the time and just be who we are and who we truly want to be rather than putting ourselves in other people's shoes. That is true freedom.
Thank You Limeroad for the lovely feature and making me a part of the campaign (Read the article here) #LimeRoadBornReal.
You be you!
