10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS FOR YOUNG WOMEN
1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.
2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.
3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.
4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.
5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.
6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.
7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.
8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.
9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.
10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.

Seriously, guys. You’re all the coolest ever.
my friend was telling me this story about how this guy caddied for bill gates and at the end of the day he was expecting a big tip but bill gates was just like “alright thanks man see ya” and the next day the guy got a call and it was like “are you so-and-so?” and he was like “yeah…” and they were like “bill gates just paid off your student loans”
I do NOT understand how people can’t find a whole huge spectrum of people attractive it’s like HOW do you not think short muscular girls are adorable as hell and that thick thighs babes aren’t sultry as fuck and beardy caveman guys with some chub or like!??? How are you not wildly attracted to multiple body types why are you limiting yourself to slim pickins
