No need to starve ourselves?

By Kgomotso Mpendulo

We were taught that we should always be ourselves and love ourselves

We are unique ad fine

We are balanced and perfect

We are chubby and adorable.

We don’t necessarily live to eat but food is a necessity for our survival, right?

Yes, junk food has never been good for anyone, but we still have and enjoy it!

We know that too much of anything is bad, but we still indulge hey?

“Euuuuw! She’s Fat”, people say, as if being skinny is beauty

So, what about inner beauty?

My take is, it all starts from within……what’s on the inside, will always reflect on the outside!

We are Beautiful!

Our dress sizes are not always in stock, but its okay

‘Skinny is Pretty’, we not sure

We can’t all be a size 28, so let’s not starve ourselves,

Let’s accept that we are different

Let’s accept ourselves

We could be Big,

Big is not fat

Big is Big and big is Beautiful!!!!
