and rant I shall.
For those of you who know me, are aware that I am not a stick figure.
Nor am I a heffer at that.
But my question:
where is the line drawn on too skinny and too thick?
can such a line even be created?
I feel as though everyday I am being bombarded with different things telling me how I should be.
to do my hair,
to make up my face,
even my personality.
With all these social networking sites I feel as though the pressure is everywhere.
Pinterest, mind you I love it, might possibly be the worst of all.
boards and boards filled with outfits I will never own,
crafts I will never do,
model children I may never have,
proposals so extravagant you cry,
dishes I will never have time to cook,
wedding decor that costs a fortune,
and perfectly fit bodies I will never achieve.
Why should I walk away from my computer feeling so bad about the way I am living?
And neither should you, because I know I am not the only one feeling this way.
It's as though the world is giving us a false sense of reality that will never be possible to have.
So, I'm putting my foot down.
I'm not saying I will ban my Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter.. because, lets be honest, I love them all.
But I will remember that I am not a product of the world,
that I am who I am and I won't let outside influences effect the way I feel about myself,
because after all...
