Motivational Monday #28

Welcome back! Hope your weekend was great! We were up in Fargo celebrating a friend's graduation and getting some quality friend time in!

So here we go to Motivational Monday!!

Right off the bat, sorry about the language on this post but it is entirely necessary.

In my daily life, I work with domestic and sexual violence victims and survivors. That being said, I hear a lot from the women that they are told how they should look and how they should dress. Or that there is something wrong with them. Now in my line of work, we really try to help them get out of that mindset and empower them to realize that they deserve respect and they have the right to make their own decision.

Before working in this area, I never thought about certain things the way I do now. How media and our society pushes an unrealistic image onto us, makes us feel like crap for not eating the way we should or looking a way that we don't. I also never realized how much the media and our society has an influence on how we base ourselves. We feel bad if we choose something that benefits someone else but are expected to remain composed 100% of the time. How we may feel like we are on top of the world but then we see something, or try on something or hear something and it all changes.

Today's post is kind of a big F you to society and to others who maybe don't agree with what you decide to do with you life and your body.


Like I said, sorry for the language but it is entirely necessary. As you go about this week, do things for yourself without feeling bad. If you are okay with what you are doing, then who the hell cares. Your happiness is what is important, dont let society dictate that as well. 

Love you all! Have a great week!
