Panic is when your friend sends you a text that says, “Hit by car.” She then sent a picture of herself and fortunately, she doesn’t look too bad. She has a gash on her forehead and road rash on her cheek and I’m guessing she will be sore as hell for the next few days.
To motorists: please be aware of bicyclists. They can’t go as fast as you and though my friend was wearing a helmet, that isn’t the same as having a bunch of metal standing between you and the ground.
Happy friggin birthday to me…
A guy I know said, “That’s what you think” to me the other day when I said I thought my jumper was cute.
A girl I know said, “I feel like a fatass” today. She is the same height as me and weighs one pound more.
I can’t get these comments out of my head. I have been having a very bad body image day, due in part to these comments. Some of you may think, “You shouldn’t listen to them”. I agree…but that’s hard to change after a lifetime of feeling inadequate in comparison to what we see every single day in magazines/tv/film/etc. I know it is propaganda and psycho-social conditioning. But knowing that does not always help.
If you ever wonder why so many women have body issues/confidence issues/self-esteem issues…these are the little comments that chip away at us.
